Blends of Natural Rubber:  Novel Techniques for Blending with Specialty Polymers
by Andrew J. Tinker (editor) and Kevin P. Jones.
Book Description Blends of natural rubber with speciality synthetic rubbers, such as nitrile rubber and ethylene propylene rubbers, have, in the past, failed to combine the best properties of polymers, resulting in a poor return in terms of added value from the blending process. The idea of blending synthetic rubbers with natural rubbe is certainly not a new one, but it is only now that this can be shown to be possible with consistently positive resluts, but eh use of novel techniques which this book describes, giving valuable information on the technology required and the results which can be achieved. Blends of Natural Rubber is an invaluable source of information for all those working in the area of rubber technology and polymer blend technology.

Handbook of Batch Processing Design
by P. N. Sharratt (Editor)
Book Description Batch processes are used to manufacture many fine organic chemicals, and as such they can be considered to underpin much of the modern chemical industry. Despite widespread use and a consequent huge contribution to wealth creation, batch processes have attracted limited attention outside the user industries. Batch chemicals processing uses a number of core techniques and technologies, such as scheduling and sequence control, agitation and batch filtration. The combination of these technologies with often complex chemistry, the multi-purpose nature of much of this type of plant, the distinctive safety and environmental issues, and a fast moving commercial environment makes the development of a successful batch process a considerable challenge for the chemist or engineer. The literature on the topics covered in this book is fragmented and often not easily accessible, so this handbook has been written to address this problem and to bring together design and process analysis methods in the core areas of batch process design. By combining the science and pragmatism required in the development of successful batch processes this new book provides answers to real problems in an accessible and concise way. Written by an international team of authors drawn from industry, consulting and academe, this book is an essential part of the library of any chemist, technologist or engineer working on the development of new or existing batch processes.

Polymer Processing:  Principles and Design (Book & Disc)
by Donald G. Baird (Author), Dimitris I. Collias (Author)
Polymer Processing: Principles and Design presents the background required to design processes for thermoplastics. Often engineers are hired by the polymer industry to develop and design processes for thermoplastics, to design polymer processing machinery, to develop processes for new polymers, and to optimize existing processes. However, at best, they receive only a little training in polymer science and no training in the design of polymer processes. This book emphasizes the fundamental...

Powder Mixing
by Brian H. Kaye
Book Description The operation of a powder mixer requires a knowledge not only of the mixing mechanisms but of the physical properties of the powders being mixed. Powder Mixing is unique in that it explores the relevant physics of the powder systems including characterization procedures and rheology, and contains an extensive review of different methods that have been employed to study the structure of mixtures. The techniques for achieving structured mixtures such as microencapsulation, and recent developments in deterministic chaos theory and fractal geometry as applied to the study of powder mixing systems, are reviewed. In particular, new techniques for studying the mixing powders based on avalanching theory and critically self--organized systems are studied. These are followed by a review of the wide range of different mixers commercially available and an extensive bibliography. Powder Mixing is an essential reference for all those interested in the basic science of powder mixing and the availability of industrial systems to achieve a mixture of different kinds. The main emphasis of the text is on working principles and operative systems, and is suitable for industrial workers, chemical engineers and students alike.

Polymer Powder Technology
by M. Narkis (Editor), N. Rosenzweig (Editor)
Low shear polymer powder processing provides unique solutions to many processing problems and offers a set of production techniques, frequently un-paralleled by other production methods. In recent years there has been increased interest in this field but no comprehensive review of the subject has been available until now. In this book, a team of experts have taken the novel approach of treating several processing techniques, such as compacted powder sintering, rotational moulding, powder...

Principles of Polymerization
by George Odian (Author)
Book Description Describes the physical and organic chemistry of the reactions by which polymer molecules are synthesized. Begins by introducing the characteristics which distinguish polymers from their much smaller sized homologs. Proceeds to a detailed study of three types of polymerization reactions: step, chain and ring-opening. Reactions are characterized as to their kinetic and thermodynamic features, their scope and utility for synthesis of different types of polymer structures, and the process conditions which are used to carry them out. Assumes a background in organic and physical chemistry and can serve as either a self-teaching guide to polymers for the beginner or as a handy reference for the experienced polymer chemist. Each chapter includes a selection of problems to aid learning and a solutions manual is available on request.
