Editorial Reviews

Review


"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

Polymers is not the center of your work but you need to know about them. Then, this is the right book to have in this multidisciplinary era. As in all the sciences, there are difficult concepts that takes time to understand and this book may be short in that sense, but you can really learn.

By Stu on October 28, 2007
Format: Paperback
Conveys the basics of polymer chemistry easily and concisely. Quite a strong focus on the applications and materials side of polymer chemistry, so would be an ideal primer to keep on the shelf for someone working in materials science.
