Provides a current view of activities related to the radiation chemistry of polymers, including mechanisms, processes, and applications. Emphasizes the fundamental aspects of polymer radiation chemistry and the technological significance of the effects of radiation on polymers. Discusses the fundamental processes by which radiation interacts with polymers. Highlights the mechanisms that create chemical changes in polymeric materials. Presents applications in the microlithography, aerospace, and biomedical fields and other applications of radiation modified polymers.Reichmanis, Elsa is the author of 'Irradiation of Polymeric Materials Processes, Mechanisms, and Applications' with ISBN 9780841226623 and ISBN 0841226628.
