The definitive guide to polymer principles, properties, synthesis, and applications Polymer Science and Technology, Second Editionsystematically reviews both the current state of polymer science and technology and emerging advances in the field. Leading polymer specialist Joel R. Fried offers thoroughly updated coverage of both polymer processing principles and the latest polymer applications in a wide range of industries -- including medicine, biotechnology, chemicals, and electronics. In addition to synthetic polymer chemistry, Fried covers polymer properties in solution and in melt, rubber, and solid states, and surveys all important categories of plastics. This Second Edition also adds many new example calculations, homework problems, and bibliographic references. In-depth coverage includes: Polymer synthesis, including metallocene catalysis, atom-transfer radical and plasma polymerization, the use of supercritical fluids, and genetic engineering Amorphous and crystalline states, transitions, and mechanical properties Characterization techniques, including new coverage of temperature-modulated DSC Polymer engineering, from rheology to modeling of polymer processing operations Fundamental principles of polymer blends and composites -- including up-to-the-minute discussions of nanocomposites Commodity thermoplastics and fibers, with new coverage of syndiotactic polystyrene, biopolymers, and naturally occurring polymers Elastomers and thermosets Engineering and specialty polymers, including dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers, amorphous Teflon, and new electrical/optical applications Membrane separations and new coverage of barrier polymers PRENTICE HALL Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458 www.phptr.com ISBN: 0-13-018168-4
