The new version brings classic text date with the latest science, technology and applications
With its balanced presentation, polymer chemistry, physics and engineering applications, this third edition of the classic text continues to instill the basic polymer materials to provide readers with a solid understanding of the core concepts. The students and teachers have praised its clear explanations and logical organization of the text. It begins with considerations on the molecular level, and then gradually build the reader’s knowledge and bulk properties, mechanical properties, and processing methods discussion.
After a brief introduction, the basic principles of polymer materials is divided into four parts:
Part 1: molecular basis.
Part 2: Synthesis of polymer
Part 3: Polymer properties
Part 4: polymer technology and performance
Completely updated and revised
Readers will be familiar with such a text with the previous version, organization and style of the new material, they have mastered the key concepts and discover the latest science, technology and applications updated. For example, a new introductory section focusing structure of organic functional groups found in the condensation polymerization. The text also has a polymer analysis, processing, and microencapsulation, as well as emerging technologies, such as atom transfer radical polymerization of new technologies.
At the end of each chapter, including many of the new version, in order to test the reader’s mastery of core concepts, as they advance through the text. There are some reference books led to the individual subject to the primary literature for further investigation.
Classic in the field, this text, so students in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, mechanical engineering, polymer materials on the basis of fully grasp and apply more advanced courses to prepare for them.
