This Book Comprehensively Summarizes and Collects Many Technical Research Accomplishments Conducted on Polyolefin Composites

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on February 11th, 2008

This book comprehensively summarizes and collects many technical research accomplishments conducted on polyolefin composites. It serves as a one stop reference resource for important research accomplishments in the area of polyolefin composites. The book covers advances and accomplishments in recent years with a major emphasis given to the new area of polyolefin nano-composites.

The chapters focus on polyolefin-based material systems that include at least one functional particulate solid or liquid additive of micro- or nano-size. The book covers several aspects of polyolefin composites such as processing, morphological characterization, crystallization, structure and properties, and performance evaluation at micro and nano structural levels. Two chapters also provide new insights into fundamental theoretical understanding of nanostructured polyolefin composites from molecular perspectives through advanced modelling and simulation.
