Contributor(s): Archer, Lynden A [autor] | Cohen, Claude [autor] | Ober, Christopher [autor] | Rodríguez, Ferdinand [autor]Publisher: New York : Taylor & Francis Group, ©2003Edition: 5th edDescription: xiv, 760 páginas : ilustraciones ; 24 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 1560329394Subject(s): Polímeros | Polímeros -- FormaciónDDC classification: 668.9
Contents:
Basic structures of polymers. -- Physical staties and transitions. -- Polymer formation. -- Polymerization processes. -- The molecular weight of ´polymers. -- Viscous flow. -- Mechanical properties at small deformations. -- Degradation and stabilization of polymer systems. -- Carbon chain polymers. -- Analysis and identification of polymers.
Summary: The Fifth Edition of Principles of Polymer Systems has been completely revised and updated. The chemical engineering perspective has been retained and strengthened, and the broad applications of polymers in chemistry and materials science have been addressed. The theoretical basis for various topics has been deepened and strengthened and several new topics are addressed. These changes reflect the rapidly growing recognition by all scientists and engineers of the role polymers play in industry. Electronics and medicine are representative areas that require more than a passing knowledge of macromolecular principles. Both areas receive attention in this edition. The end-of-chapter problems in the book have been completely replaced with the new problems. A solutions manual will be available to qualified instructors.

CHOICE Review

This new edition (1st ed., CH, Oct'70; 4th ed., 1996) of this classic and highly affordable volume deserves a place in any university or corporate library whose users study, research, fabricate, or test polymers. This edition introduces some entirely new sections devoted to polymers used in microelectronics and in medicine, strengthening the theoretical foundations of the subjects covered. Several chapters have been updated and expanded. Some of these sections treat conformations of single chains in solution, transitions in pure polymers, block copolymers, and gels, normal stress differences in shear, phase separations of mixtures, rheometry, and extrusion and molding. The book provides a nice balance between an explanation of fundamentals, solution and solid state properties, processing and methods of characterization, and, since topics covered also include uses, stabilization, degradation, and recycling. Throughout, the book maintains a focus on industrial polymers and effectively covers the entire life cycle of modern polymer materials. Appendixes, particularly valuable for graduate students, not only list the typical properties reported for some major industrial polymers used for molding extrusion or fiber making, but also provide ASTM test methods used. ^BSumming Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals. P. G. Heiden Michigan Technological University
