Abstract:
Research and Markets has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Handbook of Engineering and Speciality Thermoplastics: Nylons" to their offering.

Research and Markets: Handbook of Engineering and Speciality Thermoplastics: Nylons

Dublin, Ireland | Posted on July 6th, 2011

The book summarizes many of the recent technical research accomplishments in the area of engineering polymers, such as oxygen containing main chain polymers (Nylons). The book emphasizes the various aspects of preparation, structure, processing, morphology, properties and applications of engineering polymers. Recent advances in the development and characterization of multi component polymer blends and composites (macro, micro and nano) based on engineering polymers is discussed in detail. The content of the book is unique as there are no books which deal with the recent advances synthesis, morphology, structure, properties and applications of engineering polymers and their blends and composites including nanocomposites.

It covers an up-to-date record on the major findings and observations in the field.

Author:

Sabu Thomas is a Professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at the School of Chemical Sciences,as well as the Director of Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Mahatma Gandhi University, India. He received his Ph.D. in 1987 in Polymer Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur, India. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, London and a member of the American Chemical Society. He has been ranked no. 5 in India with regard to the number of publications (most productive scientists). He also received the coveted Sukumar Maithy Award for the best polymer researcher in the country for the year 2008.

The research group of Prof. Thomas has received numerous awards and honors for excellent work in polymer science and engineering.

Visakh, P.M is a Research Fellow at the School of Chemical Science Mahatma Gandhi University. He has co-edited several books with Sabu Thomas and has written many journal articles and book chapters. His research interests include: Polymer nanocomposites, Bio-Nanocomposites, Liquid Crystalline Polymers, Rubber based nanocomposites, and Fire retardant polymers.
