"An introduction to polymer chemistry for undergraduates, offering a historical perspective through the development of high-tonnage materials early in the 20th century to modern high-performance materials. The main polymer types are discussed in detail, with emphasis on practical, commercial considerations and descriptions of real industrial processes. The behavior of polymer networks is explained, and the modern importance of functional polymers is discussed. Walton teaches applied chemistry, and Lorimer teaches physical chemistry at Coventry University."--SciTech Book News
