Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vegetable-oil based polymers are one of the most useful polymeric materials in the context of advanced polymers in modern society. They are versatile because of their structural diversity and their ease of modification. In today's world, materials need to follow the principles of "green chemistry" with a "triple bottom line approach" in order to keep the environment clean and useful for future generations.

The author presents a textbook on conventional vegetable-oil polymers that also discusses an avanced class of dendritic polymers for undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of materials science and engineering, medical science and engineering, environmental science and engineering, biochemical engineering and biotechnology. The book covers the basic concept, preparation, characterization, properties, processing and applications of vegetable-oil based conventional polymers, highly branched hyperbranched polymers, polymer composites and nanocomposites. Opening chapters discuss the fundamentals of polymers and offers a basic understanding of biodegradable polymers. The remaining chapters discuss vegetable oils and their derivatives, including polymers and their technologies.

Synopsis:

The growing need to find a sustainable, environmentally-friendly replacement for petroleum-based materials is fuelling the development of bio-based polymers from renewable resources. Among the most promising of these are vegetable oil based polymeric materials.

This book provides a comprehensive review of the research in this important field. After an introduction to classification and polymerization, chapters go on to review the factors involved in polymer biodegradation. They explore the extraction, purification and application of vegetable oils, vegetable oil based polyesters and poly(ester amide)s, polyurethanes and epoxies. Chapters also review polyamides, polyolefins and vegetable oil-based hyperbranched polymers. The book concludes with an analysis of vegetable oil-based polymer composites and polymer nanocomposites.
