Recent work by international authors highlights the latest developments and applications in polymer science. Some specific topics examined include preparation of poly(lactic acid) and pectin composite films used in antimicrobial packaging, free radical initiation in polymers under exposure to nitrogen oxides, a novel technique for measurement of electrospun nanofiber, and technological advances in geotextiles. Other subjects investigated include image analysis of pore size distribution in electrospun nanofiber webs, heat flow during drying of porous structures, and a novel polymer carrier for controlled drug delivery systems. The book's opening chapter, advice for foreigners doing business in China, is rife with grammatical and punctuation errors, but the rest of the book (30 chapters) has been more carefully edited. Pethrick is affiliated with the University of Strathclyde, Scotland. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
