Polymer Research in Microgravity

Polymerization and Processing

Edited by James Patton Downey and John A. Pojman

American Chemical Society

ACS Symposium Series

Sixteen papers examine how gravity can affect polymerizations and polymer processing and how weightlessness or "microgravity" is achieved. The volume reviews the current research from sounding rocket and orbital investigations, parabolic flight investigations, and ground-based research. Also covered are inorganic to biologically produced polymers, including free-radical polymerization, polymer-dispersed luquid crystals and foams.
