This book deals with the organic chemistry of polymers which find technological use as adhesives, fibres, paints, plastics and rubbers. For the most part, only polymers which are of commercial significance are considered and the primary aim of the book is to relate theoretical aspects to industrial practice. The book is mainly intended for use by students in technical institutions and universities who are specializing in polymer science and by graduates who require an introduction to this field. Several excellent books have recently appeared dealing with the physical chemistry of polymers but the organic chemistry of polymers has not received so much attention. In recognition of this situation and because the two aspects of polymer chemistry are often taught separately, this book deals specifically with organic chemistry and topics of physical chemistry have been omitted. Also, in this way the book has been kept to a reasonable size. This is not to say that integration of the two areas of polymer science is undesirable; on the contrary, it is of the utmost importance that the inter-relationship should b~ appreciated. I wish to record my thanks to my colleagues with whom I have had many helpful discussions, particularly Mrs S. L. Radchenko. I also thank Miss E. Friesen for obtaining many books and articles on my behalf and Mr H. Harms for encouragement and assistance. I am also grateful to Mrs M. Stevens who skilfully prepared the manuscript.

An Introduction to Polymer Chemistry focuses on the fundamental chemistry of synthetic organic polymers of high molecular weight. This book explains the basic principles of polymer chemistry, from significant methods of molecular weight determination to the simpler mechanisms of polymerization. The osmotic, light scattering, and viscosity methods of molecular weight determination are fully discussed together with the kinetics of selected examples of condensation and free-radical addition polymerization. The main features of ionic polymerization are also elaborated. This text, however, does not cover the thermodynamics of polymer solutions or the methods of structure determination. This publication is a good reference to university and technical college students researching on polymer chemistry.

Industry and academia remain fascinated with the diverse properties and applications of polymers. However, most introductory books on this enormous and important field do not stress practical problem solving or include recent advances, which are critical for the modern polymer scientist-to-be. Updating the popular first edition of "the polymer book for the new millennium," Introduction to Polymer Science and Chemistry: A Problem-Solving Approach, Second Edition seamlessly integrates exploration of the fundamentals of polymer science and polymer chemistry. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Chapter on living/controlled radical polymerization, using a unique problem-solving approach Chapter on polymer synthesis by "click" chemistry, using a unique problem-solving approach Relevant and practical work-out problems and case studies Examples of novel methods of synthesis of complex polymer molecules by exciting new techniques Figures and schematics of the novel synthetic pathways described in the new examples Author Manas Chanda takes an innovative problem-solving approach in which the text presents worked-out problems or questions with answers at every step of the development of a new theory or concept, ensuring a better grasp of the subject and scope for self study. Containing 286 text-embedded solved problems and 277 end-of-chapter home-study problems (fully answered separately in a Solutions Manual), the book provides a comprehensive understanding of the subject. These features and more set this book apart from other currently available polymer chemistry texts.

Polymer science at its best! A completely new approach reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of polymer science! Modern polymer science is firmly rooted not only in the chemistry of macromolecules but also in their physical chemistry and physics. Furthermore, this modern insight provides the reader with information on the three most important uses of synthetic polymers: elastomers, fibers, and plastics. Biopolymers are also considered. This book fulfills the need for a volume which introduces polymer science in a straightforward, rigorous, and practical way. It is divided into four parts that cover the chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, and technology of polymers. Whenever possible, physical equations are not just presented but are derived step by step from first principles enabling the newcomer to ease smoothy into the subject. The reference to industrial aspects makes this book an indispensable support for both students and professionals.

A broad examination of the physical properties of solutions Polymer Solutions: An Introduction to Physical Properties offers afresh, inclusive approach to teaching the fundamentals of physicalpolymer science. Students, instructors, and professionals inpolymer chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry,engineering, materials, and textiles will find Iwao Teraoka's textat once accessible and highly detailed in its treatment of theproperties of polymers in the solution phase. Teraoka's purpose in writing Polymer Solutions is twofold: tofamiliarize the advanced undergraduate and beginning graduatestudent with basic concepts, theories, models, and experimentaltechniques for polymer solutions; and to provide a reference forresearchers working in the area of polymer solutions as well asthose in charge of chromatographic characterization of polymers.The author's incorporation of recent advances in theinstrumentation of size-exclusion chromatography, the method bywhich polymers are analyzed, renders the text particularlytopical. Subjects discussed include: * Real, ideal, Gaussian, semirigid, and branched polymerchains * Polymer solutions and thermodynamics * Static light scattering of a polymer solution * Dynamic light scattering and diffusion of polymers * Dynamics of dilute and semidilute polymer solutions Study questions at the end of each chapter not only providestudents with the opportunity to test their understanding, but alsointroduce topics relevant to polymer solutions not included in themain text. With over 250 geometrical model diagrams, PolymerSolutions is a necessary reference for students and for scientistspursuing a broader understanding of polymers.
