This book chronicles the proceedings of the Fifth International Symposium held on this topic in Toronto. A total of 26 papers covering many ramifications of silanes and other coupling agents are included in this book. The topics covered include: various ways to deposit silanes; silane adsorption; investigation of interfacial interactions between silanes and substrates; factors affecting effectiveness of silanes as adhesion promotors; silanes for corrosion inhibition/protection; application of silanes in a variety of technological areas; silanes in dental biomaterials, in understanding cellular adhesion, and in the field of textiles; and other (non-silane) coupling agents. This book provides a wealth of latest information on this highly technologically important topic and anyone interested in the use of these materials will find this book of great value and interest.
