((Series)) The books in the series provide complete and comprehensive information on all important aspects of polymer composite research and development, including, but not limited to synthesis, filler modification, modeling, characterization as well as application and commercialization issues. Each book focuses on a particular topic and gives a balanced in-depth overview of the respective subfield of polymer composite science and its relation to industrial applications. With the books the reader obtains dedicated resources with information relevant to his research, thereby helping to save time and money.
((Volume)) The book discusses proven and promising methods to achieve a compatibilization between the organic and inorganic phases in thermoset polymers such as polyurethanes, phenolic resins, polyesters and epoxies. Of particular importance to the polymer engineer are the chapters dealing with compatibilization agents such as maleic anhydride elastomers, hydroxyl or carboxylic acid functionalized copolymers or metallocenes that catalyze the reactive processing.
