about

This book deals with the organic chemistry of polymers which find technological use as adhesives, fibres, paints, plastics and rubbers. For the most part, only polymers which are of commercial significance are considered and the primary aim of the book is to relate theoretical aspects to industrial practice. The book is mainly intended for use by students in technical institutions and universities who are specializing in polymer science and by graduates who require an introduction to this field. Several excellent books have recently appeared dealing with the physical chemistry of polymers but the organic chemistry of polymers has not received so much attention. In recognition of this situation and because the two aspects of polymer chemistry are often taught separately, this book deals specifically with organic chemistry and topics of physical chemistry have been omitted. Also, in this way the book has been kept to a reasonable size. This is not to say that integration of the two areas of polymer science is undesirable; on the contrary, it is of the utmost importance that the inter-relationship should b<_20_appreciated.20_i20_wish20_to20_record20_my20_thanks20_to20_my20_colleagues20_with20_whom20_i20_have20_had20_many20_helpful20_discussions2c_20_particularly20_mrs20_s.20_l.20_radchenko.20_i20_also20_thank20_miss20_e.20_friesen20_for20_obtaining20_many20_books20_and20_articles20_on20_my20_behalf20_and20_mr20_h.20_harms20_for20_encouragement20_and20_assistance.20_i20_am20_also20_grateful20_to20_mrs20_m.20_stevens20_who20_skilfully20_prepared20_the20_manuscript.20_department20_of20_chemical20_and20_metallurgical20_technology2c_20_ryerson20_polytechnical20_institute2c_20_k.20_j.20_s. appreciated.="" i="" wish="" to="" record="" my="" thanks="" colleagues="" with="" whom="" have="" had="" many="" helpful="" _discussions2c_="" particularly="" mrs="" s.="" l.="" radchenko.="" also="" thank="" miss="" e.="" friesen="" for="" obtaining="" books="" and="" articles="" on="" behalf="" mr="" h.="" harms="" encouragement="" assistance.="" am="" grateful="" m.="" stevens="" who="" skilfully="" prepared="" the="" manuscript.="" department="" of="" chemical="" metallurgical="" _technology2c_="" ryerson="" polytechnical="" _institute2c_="" k.="" j.="">
