This handbook focuses on synthesis, nanotechnology, and end-use of films/coatings for today's and future markets and industries. It comprehensively discusses all aspects of coating science much more specifically than most coatings books of a more general nature, and looks at smart coatings that respond to their environment with emphasis on controlling polymer films and compositions on a molecular level and morphology at the nanometer scale. By providing insights into where the current technology will have the greatest impact, and future predicitons on new, emerging technologies, this handbook addresses the demands for coatings that can sense their environment, perform multifunctional tasks and, at the same time, can be produced cheaply and safely.A
