Polymer Chemistry is an introductory textbook intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students and industrial chemists who work with polymers. The author's purpose in writing the book was to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the chemistry of macromolecular substances, with particular emphasis on polymers that are important commercially, and the properties that make them important. Major topics include polymer synthesis nomenclature, molecular weight, reactions of polymers, recycling of polymers, methods used for characterizing and testing polymers, morphology, stereoregular polymers, polymer blends, heterocyclic polymers, inorganic polymers, and natural polymers. Review exercises, frequently including journal references, are provided to lead students into the polymer literature.
