Citing recently realized applications for extruders as polymerization, modification, and degradation reactors and presenting a telling array of new research results and illustrative experimental cases, Reactive Extrusion Systems sheds light on the complex set of interactions underlying reactions in extruders. The book succeeds as a three-part survey of the chemical phenomena behind reactive extrusion, mechanisms operant in particular reactions, and approaches to tackling advanced engineering problems. Written by an accomplished field authority, it works through issues involving scale-up from laboratory to production-size equipment, process stability, and more.
"The subject matter is written in a clear and understandable fashion … [T]he presence of many examples and case studies allow the reader to obtain a deep knowledge of reactive extrusion processes including the economic implications. This book would be a valuable addition to any polymer scientist's library."
