Absorbent Polymer Technology (Studies in Polymer Science) - download pdf or read online

By L. Brannon-Peppas,R. S. Harland

in recent times, there was a veritable explosion of study and improvement in consumer-oriented fields that make the most of polymeric fabrics which soak up quite a lot of water. those fields surround the instruction, characterization and commercialization of separation platforms, pharmaceutical and private care items similar to youngster diapers, female items, incontinence items and plenty of different similar components. The polymeric fabrics used in those functions are often called absorbent or superabsorbent fabrics due to their skill to swell quickly and to hold huge volumes of water, urine and different organic fluids.

The goal of this booklet is to introduce the basics of polymer constitution and swelling as concerning polymers used for those superabsorbent fabrics. within the box of absorbence, specific realization is given to crosslinked constructions which swell to greater than fifty instances their preliminary weight in water or electrolytic strategies. The booklet additionally offers descriptions of novel purposes of superabsorbent fabrics in addition to a close research of water shipping in crosslinked polymers.

Absorbent Polymer know-how might be of curiosity to chemists, polymer scientists, chemical engineers, and business scientists operating with swellable polymeric structures in own care, pharmaceutical, agricultural waste remedy and separation industries.
