This first book to take a detailed look at one of the key focal points where nanotechnology and polymers meet provides both an introductory view for beginners as well as in-depth knowledge for specialists in the various research areas involved. It investigates all types of application for block copolymers: as tools for fabricating other nanomaterials, as structural components in hybrid materials and nanocomposites, and as functional materials. The multidisciplinary approach covers all stages from chemical synthesis and characterization, presenting applications from physics and chemistry to biology and medicine, such as micro- and nanolithography, membranes, optical labeling, drug delivery, as well as sensory and analytical uses.
Massimo Lazzari received his PhD in Macromolecular Chemistry at the University of Torino (Italy) under the supervision of Prof. O. Chiantore. After a two years postdoctoral work with Prof. K. Hatada at the Osaka University (Japan), where he learned the secrets of anionic polymerisation, in 1998 he became assistant professor at the Univ...
