- The final volume of this encyclopedia addresses such general aspects as methods for the analysis of polymer properties and technical processing. It also provides an overview of special applications in: electronics, aerospace, medicine and pharmacy, food packaging, and, construction engineering. Further topics included are: biotechnological production of monomers for chemical polymer synthesis, conversion of raw materials, corrosion, composting, environmental impacts, health issues, legal, ecological and economic aspects.

- The first part of this volume focuses on biosynthesis, metabolism, biodegradation, functions, properties and applications of miscellaneous polymers, such as hemozoin, thymine - containing styrene polymers, polythioesters, polyphosphate, polyhydroxymethionine, polyketides, and natural polyacetals. The second part then goes on to treat the biodegradation of a wide range of synthetic polymers, e.g. substituted cellulose nylon polycarbonate polyvinyl alcohol polyurethanes polystyrenes polyethylene polyanhydrides.
