Increasing interest in lightweight and high-performance materials is leading to significant research activity in the area of polymers and composites. One recent focus is to develop multifunctional materials that have more than one property tailored as per the design requirements in addition to achieving low density. The possibility of simultaneously tailoring several desired properties is attractive but very challenging, and it requires significant advancements in the science and technology of high-performance functional polymers and composites.

In this important volume, the structures and functions of these advanced polymer and composite systems are evaluated with respect to improved or novel performance, and the potential implications of those developments for the future of polymer-based composites and multifunctional materials are discussed. It focuses exclusively on the latest research related to polymer and composite materials, especially new trends in frontal polymerization and copolymerization synthesis, functionalization of polymers, physical properties, and hybrid systems. Several chapters are devoted to composites and nanocomposites; their mechanical impact on their properties are evaluated and discussed. Applications in medicine as drug-release for cancer treatment or as development of green materials and as renewable resources with a particular emphasis on the research of the authors are presented. Coating and curing processes are also covered in this book in order to provide a better control and understanding of the cross-linking reactions.

The progress in the field presented in this volume shows the promise for developing materials that seem capable of moving this field from laboratory-scale prototypes to actual industrial applications. This book serves as a valuable and informative reference for scientists, engineers, medical technologists and practitioners engaged in the teaching, research, development, and use of functional polymers and composites.
