Environmental concerns are increasingly central in industrial chemistry, and this unique compilation presents a variety of strategies for reducing or eliminating the use of traditional organic solvents in polymer synthesis and processing. It spans a wide range of polymerization mechanisms, scales of production, and types of products and markets. Methods discussed include controlled bulk free radical polymerization, polyester melt polycondensation, the use of "pre-polymers" in network formation, reactive extrusion, and high pressure carbon dioxide as a benign solvent. The breadth of chemistry involved underscores the importance of these new techniques, and this valuable collection is likely to lead to further advances in waste reduction, novel chemical processes, and product enhancements.

Polymers are substances containing a large number of structural units joined by the same type of linkage. These substances often form into a chain-like structure. Starch, cellulose, and rubber all possess polymeric properties. Today, the polymer industry has grown to be larger than the aluminium, copper and steel industries combined. Polymers already have a range of applications that far exceeds that of any other class of material available to man. Current applications extend from adhesives, coatings, foams, and packaging materials to textile and industrial fibres, elastomers, and structural plastics. Polymers are also used for most composites, electronic devices, biomedical devices, optical devices, and precursors for many newly developed high-tech ceramics. This book presents leading-edge research in this rapidly-changing and evolving field.
