One Line Description
A solid collection of interdisciplinary review articles on the latest developments in adhesion science and adhesives technology

Audience
This book will be valuable and useful to materials science, nanotechnology, physics, surface and colloid chemistry researchers and technologists in multiple disciplines in academia, industry, various research institutes and other organizations.

Description
With the ever-increasing amount of research being published it is a Herculean task to be fully conversant with the latest research developments in any field, and the arena of adhesion and adhesives is no exception. Thus, topical review articles provide an alternate and very efficient way to stay abreast of the state-of-the-art in many subjects representing the field of adhesion science and adhesives.
Based on the success and the warm reception accorded to the premier volume in this series “Progress in Adhesion and Adhesives” (containing the review articles published in Volume 2 (2014) of the journal Reviews of Adhesion and Adhesives (RAA)), volume 2 comprises 14 review articles published in Volume 4 (2016) of RAA.
The subjects of these 14 reviews fall into the following general areas:
1.
Surface modification of polymers for a variety of purposes
2.
Adhesion aspects in reinforced composites
3.
Thin films/coatings and their adhesion measurement
4.
Bioadhesion and bio-implants
5.
Adhesives and adhesive joints
6.

General adhesion aspects
The topics covered include: surface modification of natural fibers for reinforced polymer composites; adhesion of submicrometer thin metals films; surface treatments to modulate bioadhesion; hot-melt adhesives from renewable resources; particulate-polymer composites; functionally graded adhesively bonded joints; fabrication of nano-biodevices; effects of particulates on contact angles , thermal stresses in adhesively bonded joints and ways to mitigate these; laser-assisted electroless metallization of polymer materials; adhesion measurement of coatings on biodevices/implants; cyanoacrylate adhesives; and adhesion of green flame retardant coatings onto polyolefins.
