Macromolecules with Phosphorus Functionalities: Synthesis and Biocompatibility of Linear Poly(vinyl phosphonates) and Poly(vinylphosphine oxides);First Screening of Dendritic Polymers
In a world dominated by plastics, functional polymers are increasingly prominent materials due to their unique properties and applications. Phosphorus-containing polymers are found ubiquitously in nature, synthetic molecules bearing comparable functionalities can therefore easily interact with biological systems. Phosphorus also binds readily to metals,...
In a world dominated by plastics, functional polymers are increasingly prominent materials due to their unique properties and applications. Phosphorus-containing polymers are found ubiquitously in nature, synthetic molecules bearing comparable functionalities can therefore easily interact with biological systems. Phosphorus also binds readily to metals, leading to applications ranging from anti-corrosion coatings to catalysts. Phosphoric acid provides proton conductivity in some types of fuel cells.This book is meant for students and professionals in the fields of polymer chemistry, material science or related disciplines. It describes the synthesis of macromolecules which combine a stable carbon backbone with phosphorus side groups adaptable to applications as those described above. Its main emphasis lies on linear polymers prepared from vinyl phosphonates and vinyl phosphine oxides, plus the polyacid formed by hydrolysis of the phosphonates. Their biocompatibility and influence on the differentiation of bone marrow cells was also studied in detail.A second, smaller part presents hyperbranched polymers prepared from AB2 monomers bearing one P-H group and two vinyl groups.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
