Polymers: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications
This textbook deals with the synthesis, characterization, material properties and technical applications of polymers. The aim is to impart a broad knowledge of the basic concepts of macromolecular chemistry and the special properties of this class of compounds. Building on the basic knowledge of organic chemistry and thermodynamics, the book presents an easy-to-understand yet in-depth picture of this very dynamic and increasingly important science at the intersection of chemistry, physics, engineering and the life science sector.
In the first chapters, after the introduction of the basic terms, the size and shape of polymers are discussed. A particularly extensive chapter is devoted to the important methods for determining molar masses and their distributions. This is followed by chapters on polymers in the solid state, in which the complex interrelationships in this area are clearly presented. This section in particular is one of the many enrichments compared to previous textbooks. Influences of the chemical structure and architecture on the material properties of polymer materials are clearly shown here.
Chapters on step growth, radical, ionic, ring-opening, and coordinative polymerizations are an essential part of every textbook, and here too they take up the space they deserve. They prove once again how diverse the Synthesechemie polymeric materials. This chemical perspective is broadened by the chapter on copolymerization.
The chapters on technical polymers, functional polymers, elastomers and liquid crystalline polymers are very useful and often neglected in other textbooks. These chapters are completed by a clear, qualitatively easy to understand description of the most important processing methods.
A topic that should not be missing in a modern textbook is dealt with in the chapter “Polymers and the Environment”. The examples summarized in the final chapter under “Modern Trends” are intended to arouse curiosity about the future of this subject.
When writing the book, great importance was attached to good readability despite the required level of detail - a book that is just as suitable for students of chemistry and related courses as it is for applied scientists in an industrial environment.
