Commercialization of New Colloidal Polymer Microcrystals

  • O. A. Battista


Commercial uses of single colloidal polymer microcrystals were first demonstrated in 1955, using cellulose as the raw materials. A worldwide, multi-million, pounds-per-year industry emerged from this discovery. The market is still growing in annual demand more than 30 years later. Today, this specialized field of polymer science is undergoing a major new surge of commercialization based on past as well as never-before-available colloidal polymer microcrystals.
