This book presents the state-of-the-art polymerization, fabrication and application methods of high performance industrial polymers, pertaining specifically to recent developments from the chemistry and engineering perspective.All introductory, monomer, polymerization and fabrication techniques are reviewed, and basic information is provided to help demystify the more advanced material.Chapters are arranged according to chemical constitution of the individual classes, starting with main chain carbon-carbon polymers and leading to ether-containing, sulphur-containing, and so on. Special additives, suppliers and commercial grades, safety, environmental impact and recycling are also explained. Commercially available polymers are listed throughout the book.
Destiny: the Odds of You and I
In a world where lives intertwine in a surreally unpredictable way, destiny awaits an eclectic blend of souls who desire love more than anything. A man sits alone in a restaurant, his mind perfectly at anchor with his living memoir as he quietly observes the only other person sharing the room with him: an unaccompanied woman also lost in her…
