Not yet rated | write a review
This book is an introduction to polymers that focuses on the synthesis, structure, and properties of the individual molecules that constitute polymeric materials. The authors approach the subject matter from a molecular basis and carefully develop principles from an elementary starting point. Their discussion includes an overview of polymer synthesis, an introduction to the concept and measurement of molecular weight, a detailed view of polymer kinetics and the three-dimensional architecture of polymers, and a statistical description of disorder.
