Polymer Characterization Techniques and Their Application to Blends (Chemistry)

Polymer Characterization Techniques and Their Application to Blends (Chemistry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive examination of eighteenth and nineteenth-century architecture explores its extreme diversity within the context of tremendous social, economic and political upheaval. Never before had the functional requirements and expressive capacities of architecture been tested so

thoroughly and with such diversity of invention. Bergdoll traces this experimentation in a broad range of contexts, focusing in particular on the relation of architectural design to new theories of history, new categories of scientific inquiry, and the broadening audience for architecture in this

period of transformation. Unlike traditional surveys with long lists of buildings and architects, the themes are elucidated by in-depth coverage of key buildings which in turn are situated in both their local and European context.

Book News Annotation:

As Simon (physics and materials engineering, Monash U., Victoria, Australia) points out, polymer science and engineering is a growing area with important research and industrial applications. To enhance control of polymer properties and performance in developing improved materials, 16 contributed chapters explain standard and novel techniques to characterize the molecular behavior of such materials, and present case studies-cum-literature reviews specific to the popular area of polymer blends. Color figures exemplify the use of polarized light optical microscopy with blends. Distributed by Oxford U. Press. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book aims to introduce the reader to a wide range of polymer characterization techniques including thermal, rheology, mechanical, relaxational, scattering, and spectroscopic analysis. In addition to discussing the techniques and their experimental considerations in general, the chapters will show how the techniques are applied to polymer systems and how the data obtained is analyzed and interpreted. In order to connect each technique to applications, each chapter explains the use of the technique in the popular application of polymer blends. The blending of polymers continues to be a major area of polymer research in academia and industry, and in addition to its instructive role, each chapter serves as a review of the blend literature as relevant to a polymer blends researcher.
