Polymer Characterization: Physical Techniques, provides an overview of a wide variety of characterization methods, which makes it an excellent textbook and reference. It starts with a description of basic polymer science, providing a solid foundation from which to understand the key physical characterization techniques. This book presents a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the current state of polymer science and technology and emerging areas of growth. In addition to synthetic polymer chemistry, the book also covers the properties of polymers in solutions and in the melt, rubber, and solid states, surveying all important categories of bility: Not yet available.

existing texts. However, the approach and depth of coverage are different. The book presents various aspects of polymer science and technology in a readily understandable way. Emphasis is on a basic, qualitative understanding of the concepts rather than rote memorization or Cited by: This valuable book helps readers -- primarily in chemical engineering, materials science, and chemistry -- master the fundamentals of polymer science and engineering and keep up to date on the latest materials and their technological applications. In addition to its basic coverage of synthetic polymer chemistry, the book also covers the properties of polymers in various states (solution, melt.

This book is the result of my teaching efforts during the last ten years at the Royal Institute of Technology. The purpose is to present the subject of polymer physics for undergraduate and graduate students, to focus the fundamental aspects of the subject and to . Understanding of the mechanism of radiation degradation of polymer molecules is essential for development of improved and new industrial processes, for radiation-induced modification of polymer properties, and for selection of polymers for use in radiation environments. This means that the detailed chemical reactions resulting from absorption of radiation must be known. This fundamental.

Fundamentals of Synthetic Polymer Technology in its Chemical and Physical Aspects By R. Houwink. (Elsevier's Polymer Series, No. 1.) Pp. xii + Cited by: 2.

Synthetic Polymers is a comprehensive introduction to the technologies involved in the synthesis of the main classes of engineering high polymers used in such materials as plastics, fibers, rubbers, foams, adhesives and coatings.

Besides the basic processes, this volume includes information on physical, chemical and mechanical characteristics - key factors with respect to obtaining the right 5/5(1). More than schematics and other figures illustrate key concepts and important aspects of polymeric materials.

The text will be useful as an update for polymer and other materials scientists in industry, and as an introduction to engineers working with polymeric materials who would benefit from a better understanding of polymer science by: Filling a gap in the market, this textbook provides a concise, yet thorough introduction to polymer science for advanced engineering students and practitioners, focusing on the chemical, physical and materials science aspects that are most relevant for engineering applications.

After covering polymer synthesis and properties, the major section of the book is devoted to polymeric materials Author: Stoyko Fakirov. A polymer (/ ˈ p ɒ l ɪ m ər /; Greek poly- "many" + -mer, "part") is a large molecule, or macromolecule, composed of many repeated subunits.

Due to their broad range of properties, both synthetic and natural polymers play essential and ubiquitous roles in everyday life. Polymers range from familiar synthetic plastics such as polystyrene to natural biopolymers such as DNA and proteins that.

By incorporating an innovative approach and consolidating in one volume the fundamentals currently covered piecemeal in several books, this efficient text simplifies the learning of polymer science.

They stress the importance of a solid education in the fundamentals of chemistry. However, they acknowledge the value of the interdisciplinary degree available through programs in polymer science. “You should take polymer classes, but not without a strong foundation in organic chemistry,” says Jim Mason, a senior chemist in the polymers.

A synthetic polymer is a man-made macromolecule that is made of thousands of repeating units. Sometimes these polymers are straight-chained, like our paperclip chain example, and consist of one.

This has been a frustration of mine and of many of my students for the past 15 years during which I have taught an introductory course, Polymer Technology, to some chemical engineering seniors. In response to this perceived need, I had written nine review articles that appeared in the SPE publication Plastics Engineering from to /5(9).Polymer Testing focuses on the testing, analysis and characterization of polymer materials, including both synthetic and natural or biobased polymers.

Novel testing methods and the testing of novel polymeric materials in bulk, solution and dispersion is covered. In addition, we welcome the.Definition. Physical science can be described as all of the following: A branch of science (a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe).

A branch of natural science – natural science is a major branch of science that tries to explain and predict nature's phenomena, based on empirical evidence.
