520 8  Annotation|bThis title offers readers an intelligent, 
       thorough introduction to the design and applications of 
       this new generation of designer polymers with customized 
       properties. The book assembles and covers, in a unified 
       way, the state-of-the-art developments of this less 
       explored type of material. With a focus on nanostructured 
       polymer blends, the book discusses the science of 
       nanostructure formation and the potential performance 
       benefits of nanostructured polymer blends and composites 
       for applications across many sectors: electronics, 
       coatings, adhesives, energy (photovoltaics), aerospace, 
       automotive, and medical devices (biocompatible polymers).
