Springer Series on Polymer and Composite Materials

31 Jahrgänge | 2015 - 2022


The “Springer Series on Polymer and Composite Materials” publishes monographs and edited works in the areas of Polymer Science and Composite Materials. These compound classes form the basis for the development of many new materials for various applications. The series covers biomaterials, nanomaterials, polymeric nanofibers, and electrospun materials, polymer hybrids, composite materials from macro- to nano-scale, and many more; from fundamentals, over the synthesis and development of the new materials, to their applications. The authored or edited books in this series address researchers and professionals, academic and industrial chemists involved in the areas of Polymer Science and the development of new Materials. They cover aspects such as the chemistry, physics, characterization, and material science of Polymers, and Polymer and Composite Materials. The books in this series can serve a growing demand for concise and comprehensive treatments of specific topics in this rapidly growing field. The series will be interesting for researchers working in this field and cover the latest advances in polymers and composite materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Fibers and Polymers:

  • Lignocellulosic biomass and natural fibers
  • Polymer nanofibers
  • Polysaccharides and their derivatives
  • Conducting polymers
  • Surface functionalization of polymers
  • Bio-inspired and stimuli-responsive polymers
