Editorial Reviews

Not how to determine what material that skirt in the thrift shop is made of, but techniques for assessing the characteristics of polymers, single fibers, and textile assemblies at various stages of development, processing, manufacture, and use. For readers who are familiar with the fundamentals of fiber science and textile processes, considers such topics as polymer characterization methods that elucidate chemical composition and configuration, morphology, and physicochemical properties; analytical pyrolysis to identify small changes in polymers, fibers, and other textile auxiliaries; color identification, separation, and purification; dyeing thermodynamics and compatibility; spectroscopic methods to determine molecular structure, mixture composition, and properties of cross-linked chemicals, and how pore structures relate to absorbency and flow-through processes.
