"PEL Annual Updates" are
broad-based books citing the best works in key areas of polymer research & development
and applications. Below is a summary of a typical Annual Update.
Five books are available for 1999/2000 Millennium Issue, 1998, 1997, 1996, and
1995. Details are given in the page on Annual Update.
PEL Annual Update
Recent Progress In
By Morton L. Wallach
106 pages, Appendices, Indexes, $99.00
This annual update reviews progress in polymer/plastics technology in 1996.
Topics include the hot button issues of catalysis, biopolymers, smart/functional
polymers, alloys & blends, and polymer modification. The approach brings
together in one volume the bimonthly newsletters PEL Plastics Update to give a
focused overview, and track progress of key published work in these areas.
The author reviews the latest progress as presented at key
national and international meetings, published in very important scientific and
trade journals, and patented world-wide, by the foremost authorities in these
fields. All of the citations are well documented and referenced so that
researchers and technical leaders can delve deeper into those areas which are of
specific interest to them.
Key accomplishments and directions of this work are
indicated. The author points out some interesting avenues and noteworthy
applications which are worth pursuing. This work can serve as a refreshing
review, putting the most important new technology and its applications before
the scientific and industrial community.
The 1995 Annual Update is also available and the two Annuals
(1995 & 1996) can be obtained as a set.
Catalysis - metallocene technology, new
transition metal polymerizations, chemical amplification, reactor Ziegler-Natta
catalysis, living free radical procedures, and Ziegler-Natta/metallocene
Smart/Functional Polymers - light emitting
diodes, photorefractive composites with C60-fullerene, electrooptic wave guides
and switches, thermosensitive hydrogels, smart dendritic and hyperbranched
polymers, high Tg NLO materials, semiconducting polymer lasers, and super high
density data storage.
Biopolymers - Oligonucleotide research, DNA
recognition, events that damage the genetic code, and drug delivery systems
Alloys & Blends - key patents, reactive vs
non-reactive blends, compatibilization of (PET/HDPE), (PBT/PPO), (PA6/ PC),
(PS/EP), and (PMMA/PS), surface segregation and healing, and asphalt/SBS polymer
Polymer Modification - metalization techniques,
polyphosphazine elastomers, polyimide nanofoams, and PEEKK comb-type polymers.
Key conferences discussed include Pacifichem95,
The 1st Intersociety Polymer Conference, The Semi-Annual Biodegradable Polymer
Conference, The National ACS Meeting in Orlando, and The 20th IUPAC Symposium on
the Chemistry of Natural Products.
Plastics Update Newsletter
by Mort Wallach
The newsletter highlights recent progress in key areas of
polymer/plastics technology including: catalysis, biopolymers, smart/functional
polymers, nanotechnology, alloys & blends, polymer modification and new
polymer/plastics ventures. It covers advances reported
at national and international meetings, published in scientific journals and
patented worldwide. Back issues are available from 1995 to 2002.
