This book serves as a comprehensive, up-to-date reference and includes the following sections:
- Historical development
- Polymerization & polycondensation
- Polyester types
- Fibers, compounds and modifying additives
- Depolymerization & degradation
- Liquid crystal polyesters
- Unsaturated polyesters
This work contains more than 20 contributions with experts from both academia and industry from North America, Europe, the Far East and Australia.
