About this book

Silicone Surface Science offers a survey of the major topics concerning the properties and behavior of silicone surfaces. It covers all main aspects of the subject, including: polydimethylsiloxane, spread monolayers, self-assembled monolayers, hydrophobicity and super-hydrophobicity, coupling agents, surfactants, fluorosilicones, surface treatments and surface analysis.

This book brings together the field's leading experts who investigated both fundamental and applied aspects of silicone surface science and technology, and introduces the reader to the origins and historical development of silicone surfaces as well as to their most significant current key features.

Silicone Surface Science is  an invaluable guide and indispensable reference source for all those interested in this important area of polymer and materials science and technology, from graduate students to experienced scientists alike.

Reviews

“Silicone Surface Science seeks to unveil the importance of silicone surfaces through an introductory step by step analysis of its basic aspects, drawing in the opinions of various experts in different niches of the science; all compiled under one book by Michael J. Owen and Petar R. Dvornic. … The book proves to be a very interesting read for those with a chemical background who require a step by step introduction to the world of silicone surfaces.” (Sathya Narayan Kanakaraj, Silicon, Vol. 7, 2015)
