About the product

This fourth issue in the series of Reviews of Science and Technology devotes attention to four areas in new materials technologies, all emphasizing modern uses of organic polymers. These areas, which include fiber-reinforced composites, polymer blends, polymer modified cements and polymeric membrane materials, have considerable promise for near- and long- term use in the ESCWA member countries. Information on the experiences of various firms operating in selected materials segments in the region and the opportunities posed by new and emerging demand of their sectors is provided in this study.
