Materials scientists, polymer chemists, surface physicists and materials engineers will find this book a complete and detailed treatise on the field of polymer brushes. It offers both introductory material on principles, synthetic pathways and different surface materials as well as specialized chapters. Large-scale and miniature applications of polymer brushes, e.g., functional or protective coatings, composite materials, surface engineered particles, metal-organic interfaces, biological applications, micro-patterning, colloids, nanoparticles, functional devices, and many more are presented.
