This book deals with the polymers, different methods of synthesis, synthesis of composites as well as the different techniques used for polymer characterization.

Most of the industries of the world extract the anomalous properties of polymers to make excellent and cost-effective materials. Because of this, the types of polymers, their processing, and the analysis of their various properties are very significant. Readers will gain a thorough knowledge about the processing of different types of polymers and composites made from them as well as their various applications. This book is suitable for classroom use but is especially important for researchers.

The book addresses these topics:

  • adhesion of amorphous polymers with vitrified bulk and surface glass transition
  • functionalized biopolymers and their applications
  • a new synthesis of p-Cresol-Adipamide-Formaldehyde copolymer resin and its applications as an ion-changer
  • correlating performance of commercial viscosity modifiers for formulating shear stable industrial lubricants
  • synthesis of phthalonitrile polymers in ionic liquid and microwave media
  • studies on nanocomposite polymer electrolytes doped with Ca3(PO4)2 for lithium batteries
