This new work, Functional Polymeric Composites: Macro to Nanoscales, focuses on new challenges, findings, opportunities, and applications in the area of polymer composites. The chapters, written prominent researchers from academia, industry, and research institutes from around the world, present contemporary research and developments on advanced polymeric materials, including polymer blends, polymer electrolytes, bio-based polymer, polymer nanocomposites, etc. Several chapters also cover the applications of the polymeric systems in current industry development and synthesis and characterization of the products.
"Functional polymeric composites occupy a privileged spot due to their important impact on a wide range of the new technologies that are currently used in our daily life, in different relevant fields, ranging from optical, biomedical, cosmetics to packaging, automotive, and construction. The chapters of this book address some of the recent research topics related to advanced polymers and composites. I warmly congratulate the editors for bringing together the different contributors to produce this original book, which will serve those who wish to learn more about these promising new functional polymeric composites."
