About the Author

Michael Szycher is Founder and President of Sterling Biomedical, Inc. in Lynnfield, Massachusetts. He is recognized as the international authority on polyurethanes and blood compatible polymers.


"The book can be highly recommended to practitioners."
-Polymer News

"... a valuable resource ... brings together information from a wide variety of academic and commercial sources. The handbook contains a wealth of information from the patent literature which reflects the commercial importance of polyurethanes and provides direction for future research and development activities."
-Andrew M. Reed, Ph.D., President, AMRAR, LLC

"... prepared by an expert user of polyurethanes and covers all the arms of the polyurethane family. The patent and general references allows further in depth studies to be carried out by researchers. ... brings together data from many sources and is not biased toward any one supplier's expertise. ... covers the materials as well as the specialist materials that are used in the polyurethane industry."
-Ian Clemitson, Retired Industrial Chemist, Bellmere, Qld, Australia

"Overall, the 2nd ed of Szycher's Handbook of Polyurethanes offers excellent and crucial new information on polyurethanes technology. It is of essential help for readers to understand better all aspects relevant to this field, from fundamentals of polyurethanes to their development, applications and commercial aspects. Remember Robert Quillen's quote that `if we wish to make a new world we need to have the material ready'? From this perspective, the 2nd ed of Szycher's polyurethane handbook brings substantial contribution towards the inexhaustible field of polyurethanes, so to help prepare them 'ready' for future."
-by Cristina Prisacariu, Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry "Petru Poni", Iasi, Romania
