Hyperbranched polymers (HBPs) have attracted great interest due to their characteristics such as low viscosity, high solubility, numerous terminal groups, globular architecture and good capacity of encapsulating guest molecules. Nowadays HBPs have shown many applications in polymer science and engineering, owing to the merits of convenient synthesis and low cost. The authors of this book further review the properties, synthesis and uses of hyperbranched polymers. (Imprint: Novinka)
