A summary of block copolymer chemical structures and synthesis. It discusses physical methods of characterization such as computer simulation, microhardness, dielectric spectroscopy, thermal mechanical relaxation, ultrasonic characterization, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray scattering, and NMR, among others. It also outlines rheological and processing parameters in the multiphase polymer systems with stable microstructures.

Editorial Reviews

Polymer News
"...contain[s] a good amount of useful information and a number of well|written papers on current subjects of interest in this field and is worthy of review by those involved in the filed."
Adhesives & Sealants Newsletters
...There are few texts that cover this technology separately, more imporantly few which cover it thoroughly, which makes it a valuable reference text. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This reference summarizes block copolymer chemical structures and synthesis by discussing physical methods of characterization such as computer simulation, microhardness, dielectric spectroscopy, thermal mechanical relaxation, ultrasonic characterization, transmission electronic microscopy, X-ray scattering, and NMR. It outlines rheological and processing parameters in multiphase polymer systems with stable microstructures. The book offers complete coverage of new polymer materials and their specific properties, and examines intermolecular actions in the presence of compatibilizers. It also explains the process of monitoring physical properties through structural control and highlights the application of block copolymers as thermoplastic elastomers, high elastic fibers, and surfacant agents.
