about this item

Fink offers a review of polymer chemistry in contexts in and around water. The material is presented in four dense chapters, the first dealing with marine polymers, introducing marine microbes and microgels and discussing the properties of algal lipids, terpenoids, proteins such as collagen and elastin, and the variety of polysaccharides including chitin, chitosan, and fucoidans, with special attention to their medical applications. Chapter two addresses the inverse: uses of conventional polymers in the marine environment as well as targeted modification of marine polymers for improved or novel functionalities. Chapter three discusses waterborne polymers or colloids, including their synthesis, characterization, and uses for thin layer deposition as well as conversion to solids through UV curing and similar methods. The final chapter covers water resistant materials for resins, inks, adhesives, reinforcement fibers, masonry, filtration, medical and personal care products.
