Synthesis, Properties and Applications of Fullerene Polymers

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/bf3200/fullerene_polymers) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Fullerene Polymers: Synthesis, Properties and Applications" to their offering.

Written by an outstanding team of experts in the interdisciplinary areas of research, this book is based on a new classification of the different types of fullerene polymers according to their chemical structures. It covers all aspects, from different classes, to their synthesis and applications in material science.

Of great interest to polymer and synthetic chemists, but also for material scientists and industrial chemists.

Key Topics Covered:

  • FULLERENE-CONTAINING POLYMERS: AN OVERVIEW
  • MAIN-CHAIN AND SIDE-CHAIN C60-POLYMERS
  • ACRYLATE AND METHACRYLATE C60-END-CAPPED POLYMERS
  • SEMI-INTERPENETRATING POLYMER NETWORKS INVOLVING C60-POLYMERS
  • STAR-SHAPED POLYMERS WITH A FULLERENE CORE
  • FULLERENE-CONTAINING HELICAL POLYMERS
  • ELECTROACTIVE C60-POLYMER SYSTEMS
  • POLYFULLERENES FOR ORGANIC PHOTOVOLTAICS
  • FULLERENE-CONTAINING SUPRAMOLECULAR POLYMERS
  • FULLERENE-RICH DENDRONS AND DENDRIMERS
  • LIQUID-CRYSTALLINE FULLERODENDRIMERS AND FULLERO(CODENDRIMERS)
  • POLYMERS BASED ON CARBON NANOTUBES

Author:

Nazario Martn is full professor of Organic Chemistry at the University Complutense of Madrid. His research interests span a range of targets with emphasis on the chemistry of carbon nanostructures involving fullerenes and carbon nanotubes, pi-conjugated systems as molecular wires, and electroactive molecules, in the context of electron transfer processes, photovoltaic applications and nanoscience. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Chemical Communications, and the Regional Editor for Europe of the journal Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures. He is a fellow of The Royal Society of Chemistry, and the President of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry.

Francesco Giacalone is a postdoctoral scientist at the University of Palermo. As a postdoctoral scientist (2004-2005) he worked with Professor Martn as a ESF Fellow in molecular electronics. In June 2005 he moved to the University of Palermo under the supervision of Professor Renato Noto. His current research interests focus on the synthesis of electroactive materials and recyclable materials in heterogeneous catalysis for organic synthesis.
