  • Reports the most exciting optoelectronic and biotechnological applications in assorted nanostructured and polymeric macromolecules
  • Contains the most recent reports on the physical and chemical properties of advanced macromolecular materials
  • Features polymeric macromolecules which possess advanced functionalities and new morphologies

Advances in Macromolecules demonstrates the recent advances in the research and development of macromolecules with particular emphasis on synthetic and naturally occurring polymeric materials. Many examples and figures are provided for the most investigated macromolecules in the fields of basic research and technological applications. The importance of macromolecular nanostructures in the breakthrough of science is extensively addressed from the point of view of synthesis routes, characterization (e.g. XPS and NEXAFS spectroscopy) and outstanding properties (e.g. second order non linear optical (NLO) properties). Fundamental advances in the field of biotechnology and biomedicine that include the involvement of macromolecules are also highlighted due to their future challenges and capacity for the improvement of health and nanotechnology.

The reviewed, multidisciplinary topics of the book endeavour to stimulate scientists’ interest in this fascinating field of materials science. A concise but non-exhaustive overview of both new and classic noteworthy literature is addressed. The introduction to each chapter illustrates the basic concepts which are required for the understanding of the related subjects, with the aid of schemes, formulas and figures. This approach is dedicated to graduate students who are interested in the main issues that are the most exciting and challenging in macromolecular science.
