'Chemistry and Technology of Emulsion Polymerisation' '2e' provides a practical and intuitive explanation of emulsion polymerization, in combination with both conventional and controlled radical polymerization. For those working in industry, coupling theory with everyday practice can be difficult. By carefully explaining the principles of the reaction, based on well-designed experimental investigation, the book explains how the principles relate to practical application. The second edition of this book includes a new chapter on morphology of latex particles, a rapidly progressing area where modelling the thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of phase separation and morphology has developed into a mature and powerful tool to predict and control morphology of latex particles. Another area that is rapidly progressing is the application of controlled radical polymerisation in emulsion polymerization. Controlled radical polymerisation is used in aiding encapsulation of inorganic particles like pigment particles and clay platelets. These latest developments are included in the second edition. Praise for the First edition ''I wish it had been available when I fi rst started using the technique... I would recommend this book to' 'anyone beginning a career in industrial polymer chemistry.'' (Chemistry & Industry, 2006) ''This book will make an excellent graduate level textbook, and a valuable reference book... Its comparative conciseness (coupled with extensive references) makes it an excellent source for learning the key principles'' (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2006, ) New to this edition: Morphology of latex particles Extended coverage of controlled radical polymerisation in latex production Updates to all other chapters Emulsion polymerisation is a complex process, governed by the interplay of both chemical and physical properties including polymerisation kinetics and dispersion stability. Successful industrial application relies on understanding and controlling those properties. By carefully explaining the principles of the reaction, based on well-designed experimental investigation, this book provides a practical and intuitive approach to emulsion polymerisation. In the development of industrial processes, coupling that understanding with everyday practice can be a further difficult step, so the book emphasises a clear, comprehensive and straightforward discussion to illustrate how the principles relate to practical application. Written primarily for research chemists, technologists and engineers in the polymer, fine and specialty chemicals industries, this second edition of Chemistry and Technology of Emulsion Polymerisation is also an excellent resource for those in government laboratories or studying emulsion polymerisation at MSc or PhD level.
