Developments in Block Copolymer Science and Technology
This book focuses on recent advances in research on block copolymers, covering chemistry (synthesis), physics (phase behaviors, rheology, modeling), and applications (melts and solutions). Written by a team of internationally respected scientists from industry and academia, this text compiles and reviews the expanse of research that has taken place over the last five years into one accessible resource. Ian Hamley is the world-leading scientist in the field of block copolymer research. The book presents the recent advances in the area, covering chemistry, physics and applications. It provides a broad coverage from synthesis to fundamental physics through to applications. It examines the potential of block copolymers in nanotechnology as self-assembling soft materials.
