This convenient, bench-top manual highlights typical preparative methods for a wide range of polymer types. TheSourcebook emphasizes practical laboratory procedures for a selection of syntheses that are representative of a given class of starting materials and polymerization techniques. The choice of material reflects the extensive industrial experience of the authors, saves on tedious literature searching when planning laboratory procedures, and includes specific laboratory directions that can be used as models for many related preparations.

  • Represents a"cookbook" in the best sense of the term
  • Reflects the practical, industrial experience of the authors in the selection of materials
  • Includes an extensive section on the methodology of emulsion polymerization
  • Presents preparative examples that can be used as models for many related syntheses
Dr. Stanley R. Sandler won the R&D 100 Award offered by the industry in 1990 for a significant commercial process to prepare an important organic intermediate. In addition to this honor, he has over 100 publications involving patents, books, an encyclopedia article, several journal articles, and he is currently a referee for several jo...

Editorial Reviews

"....The book is a convenient source for synthetic procedures and should be widely used for both graduate students and industrial chemists. It is concisely written and concentrates on the really important not only provides laboratory preparations of most of the important technical polymers, but may also be used as a source of models to guide related polymer preparations. The reasonable price is a further reason that might favor its broad distribution."--Bernd Tieke, University of Koln (Germany)"The book should be on the bookshelf (and the bench!) of anyone involved, or likely to becomeinvolved, in synthesising polymers."--Barry Hunt, CHEMISTRY IN BRITAIN, May 1999.
