Encyclopedia of Materials: Plastics and Polymers, 4-volume set, takes a critical look at plastics and polymeric materials: their fundamental properties; current and potential future application areas in various private, public, commercial and industrial sectors; biodegradability, reusability and disposability.

As well as covering all aspects of the science and applications of plastics and polymers, the proposed work will expound on newer developments, through up-to-date articles and knowledge. Importantly, space will be given to contemporary concerns such as the detrimental environmental effects of plastics and polymers, and expertly-written articles will shed light on composites of macro, micro- and nano-particle sized plastic and polymeric materials and biodegradable natural or synthetic materials. This Encyclopedia will be most valuable to researchers working at the interfaces between materials science/chemistry and materials engineering, as well as advanced undergraduates who need to quickly understand a broad range of foundational concepts and the developments that have taken place over time.

This Encyclopedia is needed to enhance the awareness of today's cohort of technical and scientific communities and commercial technologists, and to encourage them to look for fresh approaches and developments towards safer use and environmental sustainability of plastics and polymeric materials.

Key features/benefits

  • Comprehensive coverage a fully integrated compendium of information on all aspects of plastics & polymers
  • Special focus on the environmental and health implications of using products made from these materials and on their safe disposal.
  • Thematic arrangement makes it easy to browse, search, and to contextualize information on different materials, their applications, and their benefits and drawbacks/strengths and weaknesses.
  • Brand new content complemented by making available an important component of revised, top quality foundational reference material from the landmark Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology.

What problem does this MRW solve?

Researchers and engineers using these materials come from a diverse range of expertise and approaches. They currently have to obtain information from different sources, which can be overwhelming and time-consuming. In addition, although journals may be unsurpassed for articles on the most recent developments, researchers working in adjacent fields and early career researchers/undergraduates may need to read around these articles a lot in order to build the foundational knowledge needed to fully understand them. This ambitious and expertly curated work provides a one stop resource with up-to-date, comprehensive, reliable and balanced information to help researchers at all levels to make decisions confidently and quickly.

Important Areas of Coverage:

  • Fundamentals of Thermoset and Thermoplastic Polymers & their Recycling and Sustainability
  • Polymer Composites
