Tremendous developments in the field of polymer science, its growing importance, and an increase in the number of polymer science courses in both physics and chemistry departments have led to the revision of the First Edition. This new edition addresses subjects as spectroscopy (NMR), dynamic light scattering, and other modern techniques unknown before the publication of the First Edition. The Second Edition focuses on both theory (physics and chemistry) and engineering applications which make it useful for chemistry, physics, and chemical engineering departments. It focuses on applications of polymer chemistry, engineering and technology. It explains terminology, applications and versatility of synthetic polymers. It connects polymerization chemistry with engineering applications. It leads reader from basic concepts to technological applications. It highlights the vastly valuable resource of polymer technology. It uses quantitative examples and problems to fully develop concepts. It contains practical lead-ins to emulsion polymerization, viscoelasticity and polymer rheology.
The textbook has been a solid teaching text for introductory polymer science and engineering courses...It remains a very good textbook for many introductory concepts and is thought out and developed well for teaching purposes. --Eli Pearce, Polytechnicnic University, Brooklyn, NY, POLYMER NEWS, Vol. 24, No. 10, 1999.
