The ACS Rubber Division's Rubber Chemistry & Technology journal published a special "Frontiers" issue to highlight such new technology as cutting-edge research on breakthrough materials, novel approaches to modeling and testing, and new applications in the field of elastomers.
Topics covered in this Frontiers collection of articles:
- insights into the influence of nanoscale fillers on polymer dynamics and reinforcement from both molecular dynamics and experimental investigations;
- novel testing methodologies and theoretical frameworks in rubber characterization and failure mechanics;
- dielectric elastomers;
- bio-based polymers; and
- graphene nanocomposites.
The authors are affiliated with academia, government laboratories and industry in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, reflecting the global nature and breadth of research and development in the field, according to the Rubber Division.
Division members receive complimentary access to the RC&T Journal and this inaugural Frontiers issue. Non-members interested in subscriptions can contact [email protected].
Rubber Chemistry & Technology has been in publication since 1928, which the Rubber Division said provides the deepest archive of scholarly work in the field. It is published quarterly.
