About the book
Principles of Polymer Science introduces several basic and advanced aspects of polymers for the undergraduate and graduate students in chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science. The second and thoroughly revised edition includes the technical aspects of synthesis, characterization, behaviour and technology in a straightforward and lucid manner. Separate chapters on natural, inorganic and specialty polymers would attract readers from interdisciplinary courses.
Several appendices • Series of laboratory experiments • Glossary of technical words • Questions based on multiple choice for conceptual understanding • Brief sketches of polymer pioneers
