Overview

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.

Key Features
@bul

Audience: Advanced undergraduate and graduate students in the physics, chemistry, and chemical engineering departments who are taking courses related to polymer science and engineering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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.
Booknews
A textbook for an introductory course of two or three semesters on synthetic polymers, emphasizing how polymer science differs from regular chemistry and chemical engineering, particularly the different ways of thinking that macromolecules require. Includes some material that would be best appreciated by students actively engaged in laboratory work, but begins at the basic concepts so engineers and scientists without formal training in polymers should be able to use the text as a self-instruction guide. No date is noted for the first edition. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
