Emulsion Polymerization Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Chemistry and Technology of Emulsion Polymerisation
edited by A. M. van Herk

By carefully explaining the principles of the reaction, based on well-designed experimental investigation Chemistry and Technology of Emulsion Polymerisation provides a practical and intuitive explanation of emulsion polymerisation. It enables the user to understand and control the interplay of both chemical and physical properties including polymerization kinetics and dispersion stability.

In the development of industrial processes, coupling that understanding with everyday practice can be a further difficult step, and Chemistry and Technology of Emulsion Polymerisation emphasizes a clear, comprehensive and straightforward discussion to illustrate how the principles relate to practical application.
