Summary This product is not available separately, it is only sold as part of a set. There are 750 products in the set and these are all sold as one entity. Many books offer coverage of the current work of top researchers, but rarely is any attempt made to look beyond the present day. Emerging Themes in Polymer Science is a unique book which not only documents the latest research but also provides an insight into the likely future of polymer science. At the heart of the debate, and a key feature of the book, is the relationship between polymer science and biology. Also discussed are polymer semi-conductors and devices; polymer colloids; biomaterials; tissue engineering and polymers; neutron and synchrotron research; theory; and rheology. Anyone involved in polymer research, including those in the fields of electronics and nanotechnology, will welcome this book
