About this book

This book focuses on controlling morphology of different scales for polymers. The authors explain the need for successful control of morphology to yield target macroscopic physical properties in the application of polymers to diverse areas such as engineering materials, nanodielectrics and photonic crystals. The book combines specialized chapters with an introduction to the morphology of polymers and the range of experimental techniques available to evaluate it.

About the authors

Geoffrey R Mitchell, Vice-Director, at the Center for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development of the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria.

Ana Tojeira is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, which she joined in 2010. She completed her  undergraduate studies in Biomechanics in 2009 and master degree in Design and Product Development in 2012 at the same institute. She has been a member of the Associazione Italiana di Scienza e Tecnologia delle Macromolecole since 2013. Her research interests lie in the field of Biomaterials, especially applied to Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine. In recent years, she has focused on the study of the morphology of biodegradable scaffolds for Bone Tissue Engineering.


Reviews

“This book is a very nice contribution to the field of polymer morphology such that in its 12 chapters, it discusses the recent progress and technologies in the area of polymer morphology. I think that each chapter is very well written and a great contribution and helpful document to the works of polymer and materials scientists who are actively working in the field of polymer morphology. This book can be also used as a reference in masters or doctoral courses.” (Barnes and Noble, barnesandnoble.com, December, 2016)
