This new edition of Volume 2 of Leo Mandelkern's self-contained work is an up-to-date, authoritative account of the kinetics and mechanisms of polymer crystallization. Progressing from the equilibrium concepts presented in volume 1, it provides a comprehensive treatment of the surrounding theories and experimental results from simple to complex polymer systems. The volume will be an invaluable reference work for all chemists, physicists and materials scientists working in the area of polymer crystallization.
