Principles of Polymerization – George Odian – 4th Edition

Description

The new edition of a classic text and reference.
The large chains of molecules known as polymers are currently used in everything from “wash and wear” clothing to rubber tires to protective enamels and paints.

Yet the practical applications of polymers are only increasing, innovations in polymer chemistry constantly bring both improved and entirely new uses for polymers onto the technological playing field.

Principles of , Fourth Edition presents the classic text on polymer synthesis, fully updated to reflect today’s state of the art. New and expanded coverage in the Fourth Edition includes:
* Dendrimer, hyperbranched, brush, and other polymer architectures and assemblies
* Graft and block copolymers
* High- polymers
* Inorganic and organometallic polymers
* Conducting polymers
* Ring-opening polymer ization
* In vivo and in vitro polymerization

Appropriate for both novice and advanced as well as professionals, this comprehensive yet accessible resource enables the reader to achieve an advanced, up-to-date understanding of polymer synthesis.

Different methods of polymerization, reaction parameters for synthesis, molecular weight, branching and crosslinking, and the chemical and physical structure of polymers all receive ample coverage.

A thorough discussion at the elementary level prefaces each topic, with a more advanced treatment following. Yet the language throughout remains straightforward and geared towards the student.

Extensively updated, Principles of Polymerization, Fourth Edition provides an excellent for today’s students of polymer chemistry, chemical , and , as well as a current reference for the researcher or other practitioner working in these areas
