Polymers Summary


Polymers by David Walton

Polymers are the archetypal modern materials, used in every aspect of everyday life. This Primer gives a thorough introduction to Polymer Chemistry, ranging from a historical perspective, through the development of high-tonnage materials earlier in the twentieth century, to modern high-performance materials that have a range of useful additional properties. The authors have long experience in the teaching of polymer science to undergraduates, and also experience in the polymer industry. A feature of this Primer is a discussion of practical industrial aspects in the technology of these materials.

Polymers Reviews


"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
