Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The most valuable feature of the book will probably be its collection of experimental procedures." (MRS Bulletin, January 2005)

“...contains vast amounts of experimental techniques highly useful for polymer chemists or other researchers...may well serve as a first line of reference source for all polymer and materials scientists.” (Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 20, No. 12 12/1, 2003)

"This excellent book is a vary valuable source of information...strongly recommended..." (Polymer News)

"...Mainstream polymer chemists should acquire a personal copy for their bookshelves and all serious scientific libraries otherwise." (Journal of Reactive & Functional Polymers)

"...outstanding new polymer chemistry ideal resource for students of polymers...highly recommended." (Choice, Vol. 41, No. 3, November 2003)

"This book definitely fills a need for practicing polymer chemists and is the kind of reference that they should have at their desk...also a useful textbook..." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 125, No. 44, 2003)

"…source of concise information on synthetic techniques and methods of purification and characterization of the polymers of growth for phases…(Centro Espanol de Plasticos, August 2007)
