  • Plastic Materials: Properties and Applications by A. W. Birley, R. J. Heath, M. J. Scott (auth.)

    By A. W. Birley, R. J. Heath, M. J. Scott (auth.)

    Plastics are a part of daily life and give a contribution immensely to the good thing about humanity. whilst disasters ensue, they're due partly both to inferior homes (resulting from terrible layout or badly managed processing), or to an incomplete figuring out of the houses and functions of plastics fabrics. considering e-book of the 1st version, the plastics has increas­ ingly followed complex company strategies and automation (such as closed loop keep watch over and robotics), to wrestle the consequences of recession, and has moved more and more in the direction of equipment in response to sound clinical and technological ideas. Plastics have more and more been utilized in appli­ cations as soon as ruled by means of metals and ceramics. for example, within the car undefined, the trendy automobile now features a a lot larger share of polymers, together with commodity plastics and extra spec­ ialized fabrics. moreover, compact discs are being made up of new injection-moulding grades of polycarbonate, which meet the necessities of a tough method. This moment version has been completely revised and prolonged to incorporate new fabrics, applied sciences and layout ideas. Chapters on thermoplastics mirror the improvement of polymer blends and alloys, when the chapters dedicated to thermosets were reorganized to deal with the renaissance within the purposes of phenolics and to hide the transforming into value of polyurethanes. The comparable ­ part technique applied sciences are actually incorporated; having passed through significant advancements within the final decade, they've got turn into very important shaping processes.

  • Graphene Materials: Fundamentals and Emerging Applications by Ashutosh Tiwari, Mikael Syv?j?rvi

    By Ashutosh Tiwari, Mikael Syv?j?rvi

    Graphene fabrics: basics and rising Applications brings jointly cutting edge methodologies with study and improvement options to supply a close state of the art assessment of the processing, homes, and expertise advancements of graphene fabrics and their wide-ranging functions. The purposes parts lined are biosensing, power garage, environmental tracking, and health.


    The ebook discusses a number of the tools which have been built for the training and functionalization of single-layered graphene nanosheets. those shape the fundamental development blocks for the bottom-up structure of varied graphene fabrics simply because they own targeted physico-chemical houses reminiscent of huge floor components, strong conductivity and mechanical energy, excessive thermal balance and fascinating flexibility. The digital habit in graphene, reminiscent of dirac fermions got a result of interplay with the ions of the lattice, has ended in the invention of novel miracles like Klein tunneling in carbon-based sturdy kingdom platforms and the so-called half-integer quantum corridor impact. the combo of those houses makes graphene a hugely fascinating fabric for applications.


    In specific, Graphene fabrics: basics and rising Applications has chapters covering:

    •             Graphene and comparable two-dimensional nanomaterials

    •             floor functionalization of graphene

    •             useful 3-dimensional graphene networks

    •             Covalent graphene-polymer nanocomposites

    •             Magnesium matrix composites strengthened with graphene nanoplatelets

    •             Graphene derivatives for strength storage

    •             Graphene nanocomposite for prime functionality supercapacitors

    •             Graphene nanocomposite-based bulk hetro-junction sun cells

    •             Graphene bimetallic nanocatalysts foam for power garage and biosensing

    •             Graphene  nanocomposites-based for electrochemical sensors

    •             Graphene electrodes for future health and environmental monitoring
