Handbook of Fluoropolymer Science and Technology
This book is long overdue in view of substantial progress in fluoropolymers during more than a decade. Individual articles have been written by contributing authors but the combination of integrated highlights in each chapter and comprehensive coverage of topics will be welcomed by a multitude of scientists in this field.
To me, the need for this handbook was perhaps forshadowed by the ACS symposium: Fluorine-Containing Polymeric Materials held in Boston in 1990 where the room was filled to overflowing, much to the surprise of the organizers. This led to a follow-on symposium and eventually to a biennial, international, weeklong workshop on fluoropolymers which is well attended.
The span of this text has earned the designation as a handbook in that it covers comprehensively the subject of fluoropolymers from synthesis to properties to copolymers, to composites to processing to applications, even to decomposition, all sorely needed and wisely included herein.
The inclusion of chapters by the leaders in their fields speaks to the quality of this consolidated work. These authors, many of them, have seen the science and technology develop over the past two decades or more and have, therefore, a valuable overview of where we have been in the fluoropolymer endeavor and where future efforts might lead.
