Advanced and Emerging Polybenzoxazine Science and Technology

Advanced and Emerging Polybenzoxazine Science and Technology

by Hatsuo Ishida (Editor), Pablo Froimowicz (Editor)

Advanced and Emerging Polybenzoxazine Science and Technology introduces advanced topics of benzoxazine resins and polybenzoxazines as presented through the collaboration of leading experts in the benzoxazine community, representing the authoritative introduction to the subjects. Broad topics covered include the recent development and improved understanding of the subjects, including low temperature cure, aerogels and carbon aerogels, smart chemistry in fire retarding materials and coatings, metal containing benzoxazines, rational design of advanced properties, and materials from natural renew.

In the past twenty years, the number of papers on polybenzoxazine has continuously increased at an exponential rate. During the past three years, the number of papers published is more than the previous 17 years combined. The material is now part of only a few successfully commercialized polymers in the past 35 years. Therefore, interest in this material in both academia and industry is very strong.

  • Includes the latest advancements in benzoxazine chemistry
  • Describes advanced materials, such as aerogels, carbons, smart coatings, nanofibers, and shape memory materials
  • Includes additional characterization data and techniques, such as FT-IR, Raman, NMR, DSC, and TGA analyses

About the Author

Professor Ishida has been a pioneer in the molecular characterization of composite interfaces. His activity extends to synthesis, surface vibrational spectroscopy, and rheology and processing of composite materials. He has also pioneered the development of new, very versatile polymers called polybenzoxazines. Professor Ishida received the following awards among others: The Global Salute to Polymers Award (The American Chemical Society); The Alexander von Humboldt Award for Senior Scientist, Humboldt Foundation, Germany, Oct. (1999); Eminent Scientist, Institute for Physical and Chemical Sciences (RIKEN:Japan); Award for Excellence in Adhesion Research, The Society of Adhesion; and The International Research Award, Society of Plastic Engineers (SPE). He is both SAMPE Fellow and SPE Fellow. He has been the coordinator for establishing a graduate college in polymers and petrochemistry at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand, in the past 20 years. He has 11 edited and translated books, 40 disclosures and patents, and over 440 papers to his credit. His H-index is 63 with total citations of more than 13,000 (as of 09/18/2014). He is a member of the editorial board of “The Journal of Adhesion,” “Journal of Nanostructured Polymers and Nanocomposites,” “Polymers,” “Journal of Materials,” “International Research Journal of Pure and Applied Chemistry,” “Austin Journal of Nanomedicine & Nanotechnology,” “International Journal of Nano Studies & Technology,” “International Research Journal of Pure and Applied Chemistry,” and “Recent Patents on Materials Science,” and Editor-in-Chief of “Composite Interfaces,” and Associate Editor of “Polymers and Polymer Composites” as well as “Frontiers: Composite Materials.”

Pablo Froimowicz is the Head of the Design and Chemistry of Macromolecules Group at the Institute of Technology in Polymers and Nanotechnology (ITPN), UBA-CONICET, School of Engineering, University of Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina. His original background is on Organic Chemistry, although he quickly developed big interests in the area of Polymer Science where he was, in time, awarded a Ph.D. in Chemical Sciences by the National University of Cordoba, Argentina, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Miriam Strumia, and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering by the Grenoble Institute of Technology, France, supervised by Prof. Dr. Alessandro Gandini followed by Prof. Dr. Naceur Belgacem. Pablo then moved to Toronto as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, Canada, where he was directed by Prof. Dr. Mitchell A. Winnik, working on synthesis of specifically designed monomer and polymer as well as in micellization processes. Next, and interested in polymeric nanoparticles, Pablo joined Director Prof. Dr. Katharina Landfester’s research group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, in Mainz, Germany. There, he had also the opportunity to combine disciplines and work on the design and synthesis of responsive materials and nanomateriales toward different applications. Dr. Froimowicz then spent a sabbatical at the Grenoble Institute of Technology, France, where his interest in revalorization of natural renewable materials and sustainability was renewed. Prof. Froimowicz has been and is editor of different journals in the areas of general chemistry, organic chemistry, responsive materials, and polymer science. Since 2015 Dr. Froimowicz is a regular Visiting Associate Professor in the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), working with Prof. Dr. Hatsuo Ishida.
