About the book

Rubber Materials are used across a huge range of domestic and industrial applications. There are ten common types of rubber Natural Rubber, Styrene-butadiene rubber, Butyl, Nitrile, Neoprene®, Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, Silicone, Polyurethane, and Hydrogenated Nitrile. Their properties and applications are important for domestic and industrial applications.

The scope of this book covers four areas of rubber material as its properties and characterizations of them. Their mechanical, optical, and acoustic properties and kinetics are covered in the book. Firstly, their elasticity, toughness, modulus, compression, and extension parameters are significant concerning their mechanical properties. Secondly, their optical properties of them can be characterized by spectroscopic techniques such as fluorescence and UV measurements. Thirdly, their swelling, drying, diffusion, and release parameters are obtained as their kinetics of them. Lastly, the parameters such as transmission loss, sound absorption coefficient, and acoustic impedance are given as acoustical performance of them in this book.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Dr. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
