Physical Properties of Polymers
Polymer science is a large and rapidly developing branch of modern materials chemistry. This book is a thoroughly revised and up-dated third edition of a well established textbook. Written by seven of the leading figures in the polymer science community it discusses the diverse physical states and associated properties of polymers. Each author contributes a chapter which reflects his own interests and expertise. Containing numerous problem sets and worked examples this third edition will be of primary interest to graduate students and researchers studying all aspects of polymeric materials.
