Polymer Chemistry, Reactions and Processes

A. Deffieux, C. Pichot, and F. Candau (editors)

Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 226
Wiley-VCH, 2005, pp. 1-302
ISBN 3-527-31329-X

This volume contains key papers given at the World Polymer Congress “Macro 2004,” held 4–9 July 2004 in Paris, under the auspices of IUPAC (see September-October 2005 CI (pp. 30–31). The volume covers the session devoted to Polymer Chemistry Reactions and Processes, in particular topic 1) Polycondensation, Polyaddition, Chain Polymerization, Catalytic Polymer-ization, Functionalization; and topic 2) Preparation of Polymers in Dispersed and Unconventional Media.

The contributions under the first topic dealt with either purely mechanistic or synthetic aspects of metallocene and enzyme catalysis, as well as anionic, cationic, and radical initiated polymerisations. These papers cover quite different types of monomers, ranging from olefins and dienes, to heterocycles including saccaridic monomers, with the common aim of understanding the elementary reaction mechanisms and better controlling the polymerization processes.

Due to the versatility of polymerization processes in dispersed media (topic 2), a large variety of polymers exhibiting a wide range of functionalities, properties, morphologies and particle size, can be now prepared. A considerable number of such materials are indeed involved in many diverse applications and intensive research is increasingly devoted to their synthesis and properties. The selected papers cover the following aspects: recent developments in emulsion polymerisation, smart polymer colloids, unconventional preparation methods of dispersed polymers, and organic/inorganic hybrid colloids.
