This ground-breaking book investigates spatially resolved spectroscopic techniques for the characterization and improvement of engineering polymers. It is the first book to develop micro-spatial spectroscopic techniques for polymers. It also discusses the theory, instrumentation, andsampling techniques of optical, infrared, Raman, and NMR microspectroscopic imaging techniques for polymers, and includes numerous practical applications. The book will appeal especially to polymer chemists, chemical engineers, materials chemists and polymer engineers, along with analytical chemistscharacterizing polymers and polymeric materials. Dr. Koenig is the author of Spectroscopy of Polymers, a leading text on the primary spectroscopic methods of polymer characterization.

Editorial Reviews

"In the preface the author tells us that the combination of a microscope and spectroscopy along with a computer for control and analysis leads to the discipline of spectroscopic imaging or mapping. His goal is to introduce the basics of the essential components, spectroscopy, microscopy, andimaging, and to bring these together in a way that will be useful for the beginner and a reference for the experienced. In the opinion of this reviewer, he has succeeded in these goals. The introductory chapters discuss why we need imaging of polymers and how can this be done. This is then followedby infrared, Raman, and NMR imaging. The book is recommended to anyone who wants to know more about techniques of polymer characterization."--Polymer News
