Polybenzoxazines (PBzs) belong to a class of novel thermosetting resins, and they are produced by thermal or catalytic polymerization
of their monomers (i.e., benzoxazines) [1, 2].
Polypropylene foams are manufactured by the catalytic polymerization
The 15 papers in this collection review recent progress in pore structure analysis of porous membranes, electrospinning of nanofibers, carbon nanotubes, the catalytic polymerization
of acetylene, the synthesis and structural properties of metal-organic frameworks, and the kinetic modeling of styrene controlled radical polymerization.
Karl Ziegler (1898-1973), a pioneer in the field of metalorganic chemistry and catalysis, he also achieved breakthroughs in the field of catalytic polymerization
processes of olefins; his research team's discovery of the process to form a new type of polyethylene--high-density polyethylene (HDPE) earned him and Giulio Natta the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1963.
Topics include new catalysts and catalytic polymerization
processes, controlled radical polymerization, high-throughput and micro-scale technologies, new reactor and process design, and intensified processes.
The topics included: applications of surface science in catalysis, catalysis for fuel cells and fuel processors, catalysis in green chemistry, catalytic polymerization
reactions, environmental catalysis, photocatalysis, and unsteady catalytic processes.
Il is well known lhal ihe conventional thermal or catalytic polymerization
of cyanate ester monomers was performed through polycv-clolrimerizalion lo form polycyanurate containing tria/ine ring structure.
Phase behavior, transport properties, the monitoring of reactions, catalytic polymerization
of olefins, and synthesis of advanced materials are among the chapter topics.

This is not a limitation to the model, which can accommodate more complex catalytic polymerization
mechanisms as soon as the intrinsic kinetic data for these schemes become available.
R&H will begin a three-year effort, Project Columbus, to develop a new platform for catalytic polymerizations
. If successful, this research will complete a missing link that can enable production of special acrylic polymers offering novel performance benefits, R&H executives said.
