This introductory text is intended as the basis for a two or three semester course in synthetic macromolecules. It can also serve as a self-instruction guide for engineers and scientists without formal training in the subject who find themselves working with polymers. For this reason, the material covered begins with basic concepts and proceeds to current practice, where appropriate.
Serves as both a textbook and an introduction for scientists in the field
Problems accompany each chapter
Introductory Concepts and Definitions. Basic Principles of Polymer Molecular Weights. Practical Aspects of Molecular Weight Measurements. Effects of Polymer Isomerism and Confirmational Changes. Step-Growth Polymerization. Free Radical Polymerization. Emulsion Polymerization. Copolymerization.
