This book documents the proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium on this topic, held in Toronto. The book is divided into two parts: Part 1: Surface Modification Techniques; Part 2: Adhesion Improvement to Polymer Surfaces. Various ways to modify a host of polymer surfaces for a variety of purposes are covered in this book, with emphasis on latest developments. There is a tremendous current interest in devising new ways or ameliorating the existing techniques to modify polymer surfaces to attain desired characteristics because of its importance in a legion of technological areas, and all signals indicate that this interest will continue unabated. So this book should fill the need and should be a valuable addition to the literature.
