Polymeric Nanostructures and Their Applications is the first and only reference work ever published to bring together all aspects of functional polymer nanostructures for a wide range of readers. This 2-Volume book brings together under a single cover all aspects of the nanostructured and functional polymers, their based related materials, their chemical and electrochemical synthesis, processing and fabrication into multilayer films and assemblies, spectroscopic characterization, mechanical properties, electronic and optical properties, and high-end industrial applications. Broadly speaking, this book covers all research topics dealing with the chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering of polymer nanostructures and their applications. The two-volumes contain 21 state-of-the-art review chapters written by internationally renowned experts from around the world. The book has been divided into two thematic volumes based on different kinds of nano-scale polymeric materials and their applications in electronics, optoelectronics, photonics, sensors, and drug delivery.
