The improved mechanical properties of amphiphilic polymer co-networks (APCNs) are attracting increasing attention from further basic research on the system and also new biomedical and catalysis applications. This new book focuses on the new developments in the field covering the key areas of synthesis, properties, applications and modelling. Edited by a leading name in the field, the book will appeal to graduate students and researchers interested in hydrogels, polymer networks, polymer chemistry, block copolymers, self-assembly and nanomaterials.

About the Author

Professor Costas S. Patrickios earned his PhD in 1993 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Between 1994 and 1996, Dr Patrickios served as post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Sussex, and then (1996-1997) as Lecturer at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). He joined the Department of Natural Science (now Department of Chemistry) at the University of Cyprus in 1998. His research has been focused on the preparation and characterization of amphiphilic polymer conetworks based on interconnected amphiphilic block copolymers synthesized using the living / controlled polymerization techniques group transfer polymerization (GTP), atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization. He is currently the Chair of the Polymer Networks Group (PNG), an international organization promoting research on polymer networks and gels.
