Absorbent Polymer Technology (Studies in Polymer Science) by L. Brannon-Peppas,R. S. Harland

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

lately, there was a veritable explosion of study and improvement in consumer-oriented fields that make the most of polymeric fabrics which take in quite a lot of water. those fields surround the practise, characterization and commercialization of separation platforms, pharmaceutical and private care items corresponding to toddler diapers, female items, incontinence items and lots of different comparable components. The polymeric fabrics used in those functions are often called absorbent or superabsorbent fabrics as a result of their skill to swell quickly and to hold huge volumes of water, urine and different organic fluids.

The goal of this ebook 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 buildings which swell to greater than fifty instances their preliminary weight in water or electrolytic ideas. The e-book additionally offers descriptions of novel purposes of superabsorbent fabrics in addition to a close research of water shipping in crosslinked polymers.

Absorbent Polymer expertise may be of curiosity to chemists, polymer scientists, chemical engineers, and business scientists operating with swellable polymeric platforms in own care, pharmaceutical, agricultural waste remedy and separation industries.
