Science of the stimuli-responsive materials, and in particular polymers and coatings will play a key role in the developments of future technologies and new knowledge in this field. The book provides the highlights for newcomes as well as a comprehensive review for experienced practitioners of recent advances to stimuli-responsive polymeric films and coatings. Two sections of the book focus on synthetic and physocao-chemical aspects and this book is a must to those involved in the growing field of nanotechnologies of stimuli-responsive polymers.
Readership: Professionals in chemistry and biochemistry (industry and academia), polymer and materials science; graduate level courses:
chemistry, polymer science and engineering, materials science, biomacromolecules.
