The Radiation Chemistry of Polysaccharides

The IAEA publication The Radiation Chemistry of Polysaccharides provides background context and compiles the most recent research findings on the subject. It details activities relating to the development of radiation processed products made of natural polymers. commercial applications indicate that the radiation processing of natural polymers has emerged as an exciting area where the unique characteristics of these polymeric materials can be exploited for a variety of practical applications in agriculture, healthcare, industry and the environment.

The document was edited by leading Professors including Piotr Ulanski (MITR – Institute of Applied Radiation Chemistry, Technical University of Lodz, Lodz, PL) and Professor Xavier Coqueret (Université de Reims Champagne, Ardenne – CNRS · Institut de Chimie, France) both of whom are iia members.
