Basics of Polymers: Materials and Synthesis is a major investigative tool in the design and synthesis of polymers in the modern academic and industrial fields. Materials and synthesis encompass a wide range of operations such as selection of monomer(s) and polymerization techniques for the synthesis of materials under various operating conditions. The design and synthesis of each process should therefore be based on specific features. This book highlights the diversity of approaches used in understanding polymer synthesis.

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) is a very powerful tool for characterizing various types of materials. Using a light microscope, the imaging resolution is at several hundred nanometers, and for a scanning electron microscope at several nanometers. The imaging resolution of the TEM, however, can routinely reach several angstroms on a modem instrument. In addition, the TEM can also provide material structural information, since the electrons penetrate through the thin specimens, and chemical compositional information due to the strong electron specimen atom interactions.

This book discusses the use of AES and SAM for the characterization of a wide range of technological materials. These include metals and alloys, semiconductors, nanostructures, and insulators. Its value as a tool for high-resolution elemental imaging and compositional depth profiling is illustrated. The application of the technique for obtaining compositional information from the surfaces, interfaces, and thin film structures of technological and engineering materials is demonstrated.

Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) is a mass spectrometric technique for solid materials that can provide elemental analysis at parts per million sensitivity and lateral resolution of 50 nm. When those capabilities are combined with the ability to provide that analysis as a function of depth, SIMS has proved to be a valued technique for a wide range of applications.

Basics of Polymers: Fabrication and Processing Technology constitute one of the most important aspects of polymer science and technology. The performance of polymers is evolving the most rapid increasing volume of production. Polymers are an important commodity in the modern lifestyle. They are undoubtedly superior materials in terms of their costs, processability and functional properties. The fabrication and processing technology are showing higher growth than that of the number of polymer grades in the market.

Diffuse Scattering—the use of off-specular X-Rays and neutrons from surfaces and interfaces—has grown rapidly as a tool for characterizing the surface properties of materials and related fundamental structural properties. It has proven to be especially useful in the understanding of local properties within materials. This new book reflects the efforts of physicists and materials scientists around the world who have helped to refine the techniques and applications of diffuse scattering.

Degradation is apparent in all things and is fundamental to both manufactured and natural objects. It is often described by the second law of thermodynamics, where entropy, a measure of disorder, tends to increase with time in a closed system. Things age!

Yoshiki Oshida

Evidence-based literature reviews can provide foundation skills in research-oriented bibliographic inquiry, with an emphasis on such review and synthesis of applicable literature. Information is gathered by surveying a broad array of multidisciplinary
research publications written by scholars and researchers. This book is based on a review of about 2,000 carefully selected articles about hydroxyapatite (HA) materials from about 150 peer-review journals in both engineering and medical areas and presents itself as a typical example of evidence-based learning (EBL).
