This textbook reviews the current state of polymer science and assesses emerging developments in the field. Basic principles and current applications are both covered, with particular attention to the use of polymers in medicine, biotechnology, chemistry, electronics, and the production of rubber, solid states, and plastics. Chapters also discuss conformation, solution, and molecular weight, viscoelsaticity and rubber elasticity, polymer degradation and the environment, additives, blends, and composites, and polymer processing and rheology. Fried teaches chemical engineering at the University of Cincinnati. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR


Covers basic polymer engineering principles in addition to major polymer chemistry and material topics. Intended specifically for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemical engineering, but the chapters on fundamentals are suitable for a materials science or chemistry curriculum, and those on the principal categories of polymers are useful for practicing engineers in the plastics industry.
