Highly recommended CHOICE

New Edition Offers Improved Framework for Understanding Polymers

Written by well-established professors in the field, Polymer Chemistry, Second Edition provides a well-rounded and articulate examination of polymer properties at the molecular level. It focuses on fundamental principles based on underlying chemical structures, polymer synthesis, characterization, and properties.

Consistent with the previous edition, the authors emphasize the logical progression of concepts, rather than presenting just a catalog of facts. The book covers topics that appear prominently in current polymer science journals. It also provides mathematical tools as needed, and fully derived problems for advanced calculations. This new edition integrates new theories and experiments made possible by advances in instrumentation. It adds new chapters on controlled polymerization and chain conformations while expanding and updating material on topics such as catalysis and synthesis, viscoelasticity, rubber elasticity, glass transition, crystallization, solution properties, thermodynamics, and light scattering.

Polymer Chemistry, Second Edition offers a logical presentation of topics that can be scaled to meet the needs of introductory as well as more advanced courses in chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering.

Book News Annotation:

Thoroughly updated according to the most recent literature and advances in instrumentation, and also well-tested by students in the classroom and lab, this text can be applied to introductory as well as advanced courses in chemistry, materials science and chemical engineering down to the molecular level. It starts by introducing chain molecules, then proceeds to step-growth polymerization, chain-growth polymerization, copolymers, microstructure, stereo-regularity, polymer conformations, thermodynamics of polymer solutions, light scattering by polymer solutions, dynamics of dilute polymer solutions, networks, gels, rubber elasticity, linear viscoelasticity, glass transition, and crystalline polymers. Each chapter has a set of exercises and references and a list of further readings, and appendices give background information on series expansions, summation formulae, transformation to spherical coordinates, integrals of Gaussian functions and complex numbers.
