About this book

This outstanding text combines comprehensive discussions of reaction mechanisms of polymer chemistry with detailed descriptions of practical industrial applications. Intended for graduate students and professionals, this text examines topics at the forefront of today's research-including high performance materials, polymeric reagents and catalysts, and ultraviolet light curing of polymeric coatings. Each chapter contains helpful review questions reinforcing key points. The book also features useful appendixes describing two highly applicable computer programs.

"An excellent textbook for an advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate course on polymer chemistry [...] The book is easy to read and understand. The emphasis on commercially important materials makes it a definite choice for a textbook."
Microchemical Journal

"This exellent, well-written book, suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate level classes in polymer syntheses, would also be useful as a general resource book [...] thoroughly referenced, and contain[s] excellent problem sets."
