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.
