One Line Description
Provides a concise and in-depth information on the new coating technologies that are being developed using environmental-friendly chemicals and safer routes of synthesis.

The book will be of interest to readers from diverse backgrounds in chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, and chemical engineering. It can serve as a reference book for students and research scholars and as a unique guide for the industrial technologists.

The development of biobased coatings is in its infancy and this is one of the first books to detail the properties, characterization, and synthesis of these new environmentally-friendly coatings materials.
The book is a collection of 14 chapters written by subject experts on various process parameters involved in the development of complex environmental benign high performance coatings. The first few chapters of this book describe the state-of-the-art technologies currently available. The conversion of soybean oil to polyvinyl ether and use of cerium and ferrite compounds in coatings are described in these chapters. Similarly, there is a dedicated chapter on the use of coatings and films on fruits and vegetables. The next few chapters include those that are meant for the developers who can learn the new concepts helping those formulating innovative products for commercial success. For example, the use of biobased epoxy to replace bis-phenol A-based epoxy resin in coatings is discussed in a separate chapter, followed by a chapter on silica-based sol-gel coatings. The use of fatty acid for the manufacturing of waterborne coatings is also discussed. Finally, the book draws attention to the various testing and evaluation parameters followed by new conceptual methods. The utilization of pharmaceutical inhibitors or recycled polymers in coatings is reviewed in detail along with nonisocyanate cured polyurethane coatings.

Atul Tiwari currently serves as Director, Research and Development at Pantheon Chemicals Company in Phoenix, USA. Previously, Dr. Tiwari has served as research faculty member in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hawaii, USA. He received his PhD in Polymer Materials Science and second master degree in Mechanical Engineering. Being an organic chemist and mechanical engineer his research work tends to bridge the gap between the science and engineering. Dr. Tiwari has published more than 70 peer reviewed research publications including 15 books, as well as 6 international patented/pending technologies that have been transferred to industry.

Anthony Galanis graduated from the Naval Nuclear Power School with top honors and served as a Nuclear Engineering Operator on the USS Parche, the USS Henry M. Jackson and the USS Florida, all stalwarts of the United States Nuclear Submarine Force. Anthony is the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Pantheon Enterprises, Inc. which specializes in partnering with global industries, government organizations, and OEMs to provide sustainable solutions that exceed needs for performance, cost-savings and environmental responsibility. He has been actively involved in the development and promotion of green chemistry and coatings.

Mark D. Soucek is a Professor in the Department of Polymer Engineering, University of Akron. In 2003, Dr. Soucek was selected as a Gordon Award Finalist for his work in UV-curable bio-based polymers. In 2004 he was awarded the Radtech Innovation Award for his work in UV-curable coatings and both in 2004 and 2005 he received an honorable mention for the Gordon Award for Core-Shell latex work, and UV-curing of Unsaturated Polyesters. In 2009, Professor Soucek won his second Roon Award for a developing a new class of alkyd coatings. He presently has more than 100 research papers published, all in coating science.
