By Xiaogong Wang

This publication explores useful polymers containing fragrant azo chromophores in side-chain, main-chain and different components in their buildings, often called azo polymers and which percentage universal photoresponsive houses. It specializes in the molecular structure of azo polymers, the factitious equipment and their most crucial features, reminiscent of photoinduced birefringence and dichroism, surface-relief-grating (SRG) formation, and light-driven deformation of liquid crystal elastomers. It combines a normal survey of the topic and in-depth discussions of every subject, together with a number of illustrations, figures, and images. supplying a stability among an creation to the middle innovations and a photograph of scorching and rising themes, it truly is of curiosity to graduate scholars and researchers operating during this and similar fields.

Xiaogong Wang is a Professor on the division of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua collage, China.
