This book provides comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible coverage of the relationship between fundamental chemistry and the uses of polymers.
With help from new co-author James Mark, the book presents a complete overview of the synthetic, kinetic, structural, and applied aspects of modern polymer chemistry as well as coverage of industrial and medical applications.
For chemists and chemical engineers involved in polymer chemistry.
Revises the first edition (1981) of an introductory text on polymer science and polymer technology. Assumes a sound knowledge of basic science but little knowledge of polymers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
