Novel Applications in Polymers and Waste Management focuses on exciting new research in the area of polymer science. The first section of the book deals with a selection of new advancements in polymer technology, which includes polymers that are responsible for progress in the field of energy, electronics, and medical sciences. It focuses on the most promising polymer nanocomposites and nanomaterials. Composites are becoming more important because they can help to improve quality of life. The second section of the book highlights this aspect of macromolecules, while the third section emphasizes the concept of biopolymers, their development, and applications.

A major concern of the chemical industry is the proper disposal and management of chemical byproducts for the harmony and balance of the environment; the last sections of this book focus on industrial waste mitigation and extracting their potential for other processes.

Broken into several parts, the book focuses on

  • novel application of polymers
  • polymer nanocomposites and their applications
  • biopolymers and their applications
  • industrial waste mitigation
  • modification of inorganic materials
With contributions from eminent scientists in the field, this book will be valuable for scientists and researchers in this area of study and will engage them in thinking about other permutations and possibilities so as to have more experimental and technical approaches toward the problems.
