This book presents five chapters, organised into two sections, on the latest developments in acrylate polymers materials in terms of properties, new ideas in design, synthesis and detailed applications. Section I presents three chapters on acrylate polymer properties and advanced applications such as pH dependence acrylate-derivative polyelectrolyte properties and polymer material classification as acrylic heat resistant glass and polycarbonate antiballistic glass. Section II includes two chapters on acrylic-based materials in the form of hydrogels, interpenetrated polymer networks, composites and nanocomposites for biomedical and bioengineering applications such as tissue engineering, antimicrobial therapy, orthopaedics and ophthalmologic devices.
