Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A definitive one-stop resource, The Handbook of Polymerization Catalysts provides an overview of the known methods for developing and applying polymerization catalysts. For each category of catalysts, detailed synthetic procedures for preparing the catalysts utilized in polymerization reactions, along with their specific applications in synthesis, are provided. The book is a an invaluable tool for practicing polymer and organic chemists, researchers and graduate students of polymer chemistry, polymer physics, organic chemistry (synthesis), plastics engineering, and materials science.

Author Biography

Ray Hoff is a member of the adjunct faculty at RooseveltUniversity in Schaumburg, Illinois. He is a former researchscientist in polymerization catalysts for B.F. Goodrich, ChemplexCompany, and Quantum Chemical Corporation. He holds twenty-sevenU.S. patents in the field of polymerization catalysts, and hissilica-based catalyst inventions scaled up to manufacturing morethan 100 million pounds of production in the U.S. and theNetherlands. Robert T. Mathers is an Assistant Professor of Chemistryat Penn State University. He has coauthored over twenty scientificpapers in the areas of anionic, metallocene, and ring-openingpolymerizations, and holds one U.S. patent. After receiving a BS(1996) in chemistry from North Carolina State University and a PhD(2002) in polymer science from the University of Akron, he spenttwo years as a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University in theDepartment of Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Currently, Dr.Mathers research investigates new methods to integrate renewableresources and catalysis.
