Polymer Macro- and Micro-Gel Beads: Fundamentals and Applications

by Amos Nussinovitch

The use of hydrocolloid (water-soluble polymer) beads is on the rise in many fields. A book that covers both past and new applications for hydrocolloid beads, their properties, and how to deliberately change them, is crucial. Currently there are only chapters in a handful of books covering these topics; there are no books fully devoted to them. Water-Soluble Polymer Beads: Fundamentals and Applications fills this void. This book describes all methods of bead production and techniques to change and to estimate their physical and chemical properties. A full description of past and recent developments and applications of beads in the fields of agriculture, biotechnology, environmental studies, medicine and food are presented.
