Many significant fundamental concepts and practical applications have developed since the publication of the best-selling second edition of the Handbook of Conducting Polymers. Now divided into two books, the third edition continues to retain the excellent expertise of the editors and world-renowned contributors while providing superior coverage of recent advances in the chemistry, physics, and materials science of conjugated and conducting organic polymers.
Conjugated Polymers: Theory, Synthesis, Properties, and Characterization, the first volume in the set, focuses on the theories, synthetic methods, and basic physical aspects needed to understand the behavior and performance of conjugated polymers. The book initially examines the theories behind p-conjugated materials and electron-lattice dynamics in organic systems. Subsequent chapters detail synthesis methods and electrical and physical properties of the full family of conducting polymers, including polyacetylenes, polyanilines, poly(arylene vinylenes), poly(arylene ethynylenes), and polyheterocycles.
Featuring topics central to the science and technology of conducting polymers, this book offers easy access to up-to-date information and provides the basis for the second installment in the set.
Many significant fundamental concepts and practical applications have developed since the publication of the best-selling second edition of the Handbook of Conducting Polymers. Now divided into two books, the third edition continues to retain the excellent expertise of the editors and world-renowned contributors while providing superior coverage of the recent advances in polymer processing and applications, particularly in conductivity, nonlinear optics, and light emission.
Conjugated Polymers: Processing and Applications, the second of two volumes, picks up where the first volume ended. It concentrates on the numerous processing methods for conducting polymers and their integration into various devices and applications. The book first examines coating, printing, and spinning methods for complex patterned films and fibers. It then shows how conducting and semiconducting polymers are applied in many devices, such as light-emitting displays, solar cells, field effect transistors, electrochromic panels, charge storage devices, biosensors, and actuators.
Following the essential scientific information found in the first installment, this book explores the ways in which polymers are useful in industrial and commercial applications. These application developments have already led to marketable products.
What does it mean to say we live in a permanent state of emergency? What are the juridical, political and social underpinnings of that framing? Has international law played a role in producing or challenging the paradigm of normalised emergency? How should we understand the relationship between imperialism, race and emergency legal regimes? In addressing such questions, this book situates emergency doctrine in historical context. It illustrates some of the particular colonial lineages that have shaped the state of emergency, and emphasises that contemporary formations of emergency governance are often better understood not as new or exceptional, but as part of an ongoing historical constellation of racialised emergency politics. The book highlights the connections between emergency law and violence, and encourages alternative approaches to security discourse. It will appeal to scholars and students of international law, colonial history, postcolonialism and human rights, as well as policymakers and social justice advocates.
This exciting YA novel, tells the story of Robyn Howard, a rebellious schoolgirl who is concerned that women play a very small part in world history. Although her father has sympathy with her views, her mother is work-obsessed and has little time for her daughter. After a confrontation with the school principal Robyn is sent to detention with instructions to write an essay on three famous men in history. Suddenly a violent storm breaks and a bolt of lightning knocks her to the floor. She awakens in Nottingham's Sherwood Forest where she meets a group of women who regard her as their leader, Robyn Hood. She quickly adapts to her new role, leading her female outlaw band in constant battles against the Sheriff's soldiers. Her band rescues a young princess who turns out to be Robyn's long lost sister and is welcomed into the band. Robyn improves her fighting skills and shares a romance with a young squire but she is eventually captured by the Sheriff's soldiers. The triumphant Sheriff orders a public trial in the Nottingham marketplace where he is the sole judge. Robyn responds bravely to his accusations, while at the same time noting that he looks strangely familiar. In spite of her spirited defence Robyn is condemned to death. Escape seems impossible. But there is a twist in the fantasy tale!
