About this book

This book is a comprehensive collaboration on intelligent polymers and coatings for industrial applications by worldwide researchers and specialists. The authors cover the basis and fundamental aspects of intelligent polymers and coatings, challenges, and potential mechanisms and properties. They include recent and emerging industrial applications in medical, smart textile design, oil and gas, electronic, aerospace, and automobile industries as well as other applications including microsystems, sensors, and actuators, among others. The authors discuss the potential for future research in these areas for improvement and growth of marketable applications of intelligent polymers and coatings.

About the authors

Dr. Majid Hosseini has earned both his Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron in Ohio, United States. He has also completed his Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran. Dr. Hosseini’s research interests, expertise, and experiences are very diverse, ranging from intelligent polymers and coatings  to micro/encapsulation, nanoparticles for biomedical applications, industrial biotechnology, renewable energies, bioprocess engineering and developement, and biofuels. Dr. Hosseini has been actively engaged in various fields of polymers, bio/nanotechnology, sustainability, biofuels, and related technology development both in industry and academia. He is a persistent reviewer of leading international journals, has published high caliber research articles, and co-invented US and international patent application technologies. Dr. Hosseini has been a member of several professional bodies in the USA including  The New York Academy of Sciences, American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AICHE)AICHE-Institute for SustainabilityAICHE-SBE (Society of Biological Engineering)New Design Institute for Emergency Relief Systems (DIERS)International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), AICHE-Pharmaceutical Discovery, Development and Manufacturing Forum, and The National Society of Collegiate Scholars

Dr. Abdel Salam Hamdy Makhlouf is RGV STAR Professor in the Manufacturing & Industrial Engineering Department at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.  He is a multiple-award winner for his academic excellence: He received several prestigious awards in Germany (Humboldt Research Award for Experienced Scientists at Max Planck Institute); USA (Fulbright Visiting Scholar, NSF Fellow, and Dept. of Energy Fellow); Belgium (Belgian Federal Science Research Fellowship); Arab League (Arab Youth Excellence Award in Innovation 2013), Jordan (Abdul Hameed Shoman Award in Engineering Science 2012); Egypt (National Prize of Egypt in Advanced Science and Technology 2006; Egyptian Prize of Excellence in Surface Technology and Corrosion 2006; and Egyptian Prize of Excellence and Innovation in Materials Science and their Applications 2009); and Palestine (An-Najah Prize for Research 2014).
