One Line Description
The book exhaustively covers the various polymers that are used for sensors and actuators from the view of organic chemistry.

Researchers and students in chemistry, polymer science, materials science, and electrical engineering.

The book has in-depth coverage of the various polymers that are used for sensors and actuators from the view of organic chemistry. The author has researched both scientific papers and patents to include all the recent discoveries and applications. Since many chemists may not be very familiar with the physical background as well as how sensors operate, Polymeric Sensors and Actuators has a general chapter dealing with the overall physics and basic principles of sensors. Chapters on the methods of fabrication, smart textiles, actuators, as well as the processing of data are included.
