Title information

This book offers a comprehensive overview of trends in polymers and their derivatives with a focus on sustainable, composite polymers and their applications across a variety of fields. It offers insights on novel applications of these materials to solve today's complex industrial challenges. The book provides an extensive review of various composites, including bamboo fiber, nanofilled epoxy, carbon nano-onions (CNOs), basalt fiber reinforced, reduced graphene oxide (rGO)/epoxy, and natural fiber reinforced polymer composites.

Trends in Applications of Polymers and Polymer Composites:

  • Addresses smart polymers/stimuli responsive polymers or programmable polymers
  • Discusses the applications of conducting polymer composites for the development of resistive and electrochemical gas sensors
  • Provides a roadmap for the future applications of different intelligent/smart polymer composites

This book is an invaluable resource for research professionals engaged in polymer related research, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers. Undergraduate students, materials scientists, and polymer microfabrication engineers will also find it a useful reference.
