Advanced Polymer Science and Engineering
Polymers are one of the key engineering materials and are widely used in many fields of economic development, and scientific and technological innovation. During their rapid development throughout the 20th century, polymers deeply influenced the entire world economy. The more than 129 peer-reviewed papers presented here cover the latest trends and achievements in this field of research and will help enterprises to improve product quality and the range of applications so as to enhance company-brand competition strength in the international market-place. This will be essential reading for design and production engineers, in particular.

Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: One hundred twenty-four papers from the October 2010 conference present recent research on the design, fabrication, and characterization of polymer materials for industrial applications in China. Editor Wang (Qingdao U. of Science and Technology) co-authored 15 of the papers, describing the preparation and properties of rubber/clay, TDI-montmorillonoite, and polyester short fiber/rubber composites, and the effect of rotor speed on rubber mixing processes. Four papers from Beijing University of Chemical Technology investigate the dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in epoxy resin, electrospinning in a parallel electrical field, and the performance of radial tires. Other topics include an antibacterial cotton fabric with patchouli microcapsules, a biodegradable packaging, the cooling time of gas-assisted injection molding, and optimization of sequential injection molding for car interior trim panels.
