This book brings together for the first time in one publication a complete treatment of the phenomenology and theory of how molecular structure affects the flow properties of molten plastics and, conversely, how these properties can be used to obtain information about the molecular structure of a polymer. The book is intended to meet the needs of polymer scientists and plastics engineers. Although only published in mid-2006, the publisher has already rated it as a "best seller."
Massively parallel nanofluidic systems are lab-on-a-chip devices where the fluidic operations associated with solution-phase biochemical and biological analysis are performed in high density arrays of nanoliter containers.
