Book Description :

Polymers and Nanomaterials for Gene Therapy provides the latest information on gene therapy, a topic that has attracted significant attention over the past two decades for the treatment of inherited and acquired genetic diseases. Major research efforts are currently focused on designing suitable carrier vectors that compact and protect oligonucleotides for gene therapy. The book explores the most recent developments in the field of polymer science and nanotechnology, and how these advancements have helped in the design of advanced materials. Non-viral vector systems, including cationic lipids, polymers, dendrimers, peptides and nanoparticles, are potential routes for compacting DNA for systemic delivery. However, unlike viral analogues that have no difficulty in overcoming cellular barriers and immune defense mechanisms, non-viral gene carriers consistently exhibit significant reduced transfection efficiency due to numerous extra- and intracellular obstacles. Therefore, biocompatibility and potential for large-scale production make these compounds increasingly attractive for gene therapy. This book contains chapters on the engineering of polymers and nanomaterials for gene therapy, and how they can form complexes with DNA and avoid both in vitro and in vivo barriers. Other chapters describe in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo gene therapy studies, and the current issues affecting non-viral gene therapy. Explores current challenges in the research of genetic diseases Discusses polymers for gene therapy and their function in designing advanced materials Provides examples of organic and inorganic nanomaterials for gene therapy Includes labeling, targeting, and assays Looks at characterization, physico-(bio)chemical properties, and applications

Book Description :

This text is the published version of many ofthe talks presented at two symposiums held as part of the Southeast Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society (SERMACS) in Knoxville, TN in October, 1999. The Symposiums, entitled Solution Thermodynamics of Polymers and Computational Polymer Science and Nanotechnology, provided outlets to present and discuss problems of current interest to polymer scientists. It was, thus, decided to publish both proceedings in a single volume. The first part of this collection contains printed versions of six of the ten talks presented at the Symposium on Solution Thermodynamics of Polymers organized by Yuri B. Melnichenko and W. Alexander Van Hook. The two sessions, further described below, stimulated interesting and provocative discussions. Although not every author chose to contribute to the proceedings volume, the papers that are included faithfully represent the scope and quality of the symposium. The remaining two sections are based on the symposium on Computational Polymer Science and Nanotechnology organized by Mark D. Dadmun, Bobby G. Sumpter, and Don W. Noid. A diverse and distinguished group of polymer and materials scientists, biochemists, chemists and physicists met to discuss recent research in the broad field of computational polymer science and nanotechnology. The two-day oral session was also complemented by a number of poster presentations. The first article of this section is on the important subject of polymer blends. M. D.

Book Description :

It is not a long time since the primary tools of technology were invented and we are not very old to forget the beginning of computer age and its subsequent technologies. Now we are at the onset of a revolution in the science and technology named nano-science and nanotechnology which deal with the design, characterization, production, application and investigation of behavior of materials and systems in the atomic, molecular or nanometer scales. Nanoscience and nanotechnology actually is a new view to traditional science and technologies and it will affect most areas of human life. Polymer science and technology are already affected by it and it seems nanoscience and nanotechnology have changed their routes. They set new topics in science and technical applications of polymeric materials, and expose unique opportunities in the performance and application of these materials. Enhancing the properties of traditional polymers and preparation of new products by using nanoscience and nanotechnology has currently received an exceptional interest from the researchers, technology incubators and commercial organizations for going forward in introducing the materials which have new nanocomposite or hybrid structures, new properties, and new performance standards. The relation between nanotechnology and polymer science and technology goes back to the progress and modification of the traditional polymers either by nanomaterials and synthesis of well-defined and tailored polymers in one hand, or macromolecules having nanometer size, new structure and properties, in the other. Due to the importance of polymers with a well-defined structure, this book will focus on the later section. Clearly the explanation of nanotechnological applications of even one class of novel polymers in all areas is a demanding task. However, we will try to focus on the especial types of polymers and their applications in special areas. Well-defined and three dimensional structure, small size, high functionality, cavity and other interesting properties differentiate dendrimers and dendritic polymers from other polymers and macromolecules and make them unique building blocks for using in nanotechnology. In our previous book entitled Novel Polymers and Nanoscience we focused on the synthesis and preparation of novel polymers such as dendrimers, hyperbranched polymers, star polymers, conductive polymers and hybrid materials. This book explains some of applications of these polymers in some areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology such as nanomedicine, nanocatalyst, nanocomposites, nanopatterning and imprinting.

Book Description :

Micro and Nano Fibrillar Composites (MFCs and NFCs) from Polymer Blends is a comprehensive reference for researchers, students and scientists working in the field of plastics recycling and composites. The book aims to determine the influence of micro and nanofibrillar morphology on the properties of immiscible blend systems. Chapters cover micro and nanofibrillar composites based on polyolefin, liquid crystal polymer, biodegradable polymers, polyester and polyamide blends in various industrial application fields. The book brings together panels of highly-accomplished experts in the field of plastics recycling, blends and composites systems. For several decades, plastic technology has played an important role in many industrial applications, such as packaging, automobiles, aerospace and construction. However the increasing use of plastics creates a lot of waste. This has led to restrictions on the use of some plastics for certain applications and a drive towards recycling of plastics. More recently, microfibrillar in-situ composites have been prepared from waste plastics such as PET/PP, PET/PE and Nylon/PP as a way of formulating new high performance polymer systems. This book tackles these issues and more, and is an ideal resource for anyone interested in polymer blends. Provides information on MFC and NFC based polymer blends that have been accumulated over the last 25 years, providing a useful reference Adopts a novel approach in terms of understanding the relationship between processing, morphology, structure, properties and applications in micro and nanofibrillar composites Contains contributions from leading experts in the field from both industrial and academic research
