Liquid Crystalline Polymers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new edition of this authoritative guide on liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) science has been produced in response to the wealth of new material recently generated in the field. It takes the reader through the theoretical underpinnings to real-world applications of LCP technology in a logical, well-integrated manner. A chapter on liquid biopolymers has been introduced, whilst the in-depth discussion on applications describes not only maturing fields of high strength structural LCPs, but also a detailed analysis of the developing area of functional materials. The in-depth coverage and detailed glossary establishes this as an indispensable text for graduate students and researchers in the polymer field, as well as being of interest to those working in chemistry, physics and materials science.

Synopsis:

This book is the first to provide a comprehensive coverage of the field of liquid crystalline polymers. It examines the synthesis, properties, applications and the theoretical understanding of these materials. It is a graduate text, intended for those who are studying liquid crystalline polymers within the disciplines of chemistry, physics or materials science.

Synopsis:

The new edition of this authoritative guide explains the underlying science and applications of liquid crystalline polymers. A new chapter on liquid biopolymers is included, whilst established and novel applications are reviewed. This will be indispensable to graduate students and researchers in the polymer and materials science field.

About the Author

Athene Donald became Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge in 1998 after many years as a lecturer and then reader. She was elected as Fellow of the Royal Society in 1999. She is the author of over 200 papers in the general field of soft matter physics, with interests spanning from synthetic to biologically relevant polymers.Alan Windle is Professor of Materials Science at the University of Cambridge, Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge and Fellow of the Royal Society. He is the author of over 200 papers on polymer structure, liquid crystal polymers and carbon nanotubes. Professor Windle holds the Bessemer and Royal Society of Arts silver medal from Imperial College and was awarded the Rosenheim Medal by the Institute of Metals in 1988 and the Swinburne Gold Medal and prize by the Plastics and Rubber Institute in 1992.Simon Hanna is Lecturer in Polymer Physics at the University of Bristol. His research interests include computer simulations of structure/property relationships in polymers, liquid crystals and liquid crystal polymers, and interfacial interactions between polymers and liquid crystals.
