About this book
The goal of each thematic volume is to give the non-specialist reader, whether in academia or industry, a comprehensive insight into an area where new research is emerging which is of interest to a larger scientific audience.
Each review within the volume critically surveys one aspect of that topic and places it within the context of the volume as a whole. The most significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years are presented using selected examples to illustrate the principles discussed. The coverage is not intended to be an exhaustive summary of the field or include large quantities of data, but should rather be conceptual, concentrating on the methodological thinking that will allow the non-specialist reader to understand the information presented. Contributions also offer an outlook on potential future developments in the field.
Review articles for the individual volumes are invited by the volume editors.
Readership: research chemists at universities or in industry, graduate students.

“Polymer mechanochemistry is in many respects a new science, and one of growing interest. … there is clearly a significant need for a new book that would present the many advances in polymer mechanochemistry. … This book nicely fills a void in reporting on this growing research area. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (P. G. Heiden, Choice, Vol. 53 (8), April, 2016)
