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!

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).

One of the ways of making drug delivery more efficient is the use of nanosystems for targeted delivery and timed release. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies will explore the latest research on nanoparticulate delivery systems for the immune modulating agent, GMDP (N-acetylglucosaminyl-N-acetylmuramyl-Lisoglutamine), an important component in cell wall structure and receptors. Silica nanoparticles in particular have shown great promise in enhanced delivery of drugs targeted at this cellular wall component.
