Synopsis

Chemistry of New Materials by David E. Newton

Nature has a remarkable variety of ways of assembling atoms and molecules to form natural products, and people still have a great deal to learn from these processes. But natural methods provide no more than a hint of the host of new products that can be made. These new products are changing - and will continue to change - the way in which scientists and engineers build the substances that make human civilization what it is today. Chemistry of New Materials reviews some of the exciting fields of materials research. An introduction to the evolution of materials is followed by an exploration of various examples of composites in new products and materials. This volume examines the many advances in the development of new materials and products by scientists and researchers, ranging from everyday consumer products to medical applications. Biographical information on noteworthy researchers is also included. Chapters include: The Evolution of Materials; Composites; Biomaterials; Nanomaterials; Smart Materials; and New Polymers.
