Polymer Chemistry: Properties and Applications
Hanser Gardner Publications, Jan 1, 2006 - Technology & Engineering - 397 pages
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of polymers. Its target audience includes undergraduates in the areas of physical sciences and engineering, and industry professionals new to the field of polymers. Special emphasis is given to the characteristics that set polymers apart from small molecules, as studied in classic chemistry courses. The various branches of polymer science are introduced and discussed in a systematic manner, starting from basic chemical structures, continuing through super molecular organization and physical properties. Specific examples are used throughout to illustrate how end usage relates to the principles under discussion. A series of chapters devoted to case studies describing the principal classes of synthetic polymers complete this book.
