Polymer Composites Derived from Animal Sources presents a systematic review of recent developments in this important research field. The book provides a thorough introduction to the various types of animal-based material resources currently available and discusses their morphology, extraction process, sustainability, formation, properties, and applications. Emphasis is placed on applications of polymer composites derived from wool, silk, chicken, bovine, marine life, and animal waste. Different types of processing techniques are discussed in detail as well as chemical modification, interfacial adhesion, and the structure-property relationship.The book will be a valuable reference resource for academic and industrial researchers, and materials scientists and engineers working on the research and development of natural-based composites derived from animal sources.
Provides a comprehensive reference on the preparation and applications of high-performance polymer composites derived from animal sources
Covers materials selection, design solutions, manufacturing techniques, characterization, structural analysis, and performance for various applications
Includes extraction methods, surface treatment, and modification and fabrication methods
Focuses on economic and environmental aspects
Academic and industrial researchers, and materials scientists and engineers working on the research and development of natural-based composites derived from animal sources MSC and postgraduate students in materials science, mainly polymers and composite materials
