Filling the gap for a book dealing with synthetic strategies and recent developments, this volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the field of post-polymerization modification. As such, the international team of expert authors covers a wide range of topics, including new synthetic techniques utilizing different reactive groups for post-polymerization modifications of synthetic polymers, as well as modification of biomimetic and biological polymers. Furthermore, industrial applications of polymers that are synthesized by post-polymerization techniques and experimental procedures are included. With its experimental section this is an indispensable reference for the daily lab work of polymer chemists in both academia and industry researching the field of polymer synthesis.
