This book provides a comprehensive description of topological polymers, an emerging research area in polymer science and polymer
materials engineering. The precision polymer topology designing is critical to realizing the unique polymer properties and
functions leading to their eventual applications. The prominent contributors are led by Principal Editor Yasuyuki Tezuka and
CoEditor Tetsuo Deguchi. Important ongoing achievements and anticipated breakthroughs in topological polymers are presented
with an emphasis on the spectacular diversification of polymer constructions.
The book serves readers collectively to acquire comprehensive insights over exciting innovations ongoing in topological polymer chemistry, encompassing topological geometry analysis, classification, physical characterization by simulation and the eventual chemical syntheses, with the supplementary focus on the polymer folding, invoked with the ongoing breakthrough of the precision AI prediction of protein folding. The current revolutionary developments in synthetic approaches specifically for single cyclic (ring) polymers and the topologydirected properties/functions uncovered thereby are outlined as a showcase example.
This book is especially beneficial to academic personnel in universities and to researchers working in relevant institutions and companies. Although the level of the book is advanced, it can serve as a good reference book for graduate students and postdocs as a source of valuable knowledge of cuttingedge topics and progress in polymer chemistry.

Yasuyuki Tezuka is a professor emeritus of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He served as the Asian editor (20062011) for
Reactive and Functional Polymers and continued as the editorinchief (20122018). He currently holds the position of honorary
editor of the journal. He completed his B.S. (1976) and M.S. (1978) degrees in synthetic chemistry at The University of Tokyo.
Subsequently, he moved to Ghent University (Belgium) in 1979 as a fellowship student of the Belgian (Flemish) government,
and completed his doctorate there in 1982. Returning to Japan, he began his academic career as an assistant professor at the
Nagaoka University of Technology and was promoted to associate professor in 1991. In 1994, he moved to the Tokyo Institute
of Technology, Department of Organic and Polymeric Materials, where he served as a full professor from 2003 until his retirement
in 2019. He received the Tokyo Tech Award for Best Teacher, 2004; the Award of the Society of Polymer Science (SPSJ), Japan
(2010); and the SPSJ Award for Outstanding Achievement in Polymer Science and Technology (2018). His research activities
have focused on topological polymer chemistry, designing topologically unique macromolecular architectures, and uncovering
their topology effects.
Tetsuo Deguchi is a professor in the Department of Physics, Ochanomizu University. He received his B.S. (1987) and M.S. (1989) degrees in physics at The University of Tokyo. He began his academic career as an assistant professor at The University of Tokyo in 1990, where he was awarded his Ph.D. degree ("Multivariable Invariants of Colored Links and Related Solvable Models in Statistical Mechanics") in 1992. He moved to the Department of Physics in Ochanomizu University as an associate professor in 1994 and has served as a full professor since 2001. His research activities have focused on 1) statistical physics of polymers, in particular, that of topological polymers such as ring polymers, multiplering polymers, polymers of theta graphs, and complete bipartite graphs, 2) molecular dynamic simulation of topological polymers in solution and in melt, 3) nonequilibrium dynamics of quantum manybody systems, thermalization, and equilibration of isolated quantum systems, 4) mathematical physics of exactly solvable models in statistical physics and quantum dynamics, and 5) integrable quantum spin chains solved by the Bethe ansatz method.
