A revised edition of a classic text. Polymers are macromolecules built up by linking large numbers of smaller molecules. Due to their diverse physical properties, polymers have become central to a number of important industries, including plastics, rubber, adhesives, fiber, and paint industries. "Introduction to Physical Polymer Science, Third Edition" is the definitive reference for polymer researchers. Emphasizing interrelationships between molecular structure and the morphology and mechanical behavior of polymers, the Third Edition incorporates new findings in processing and characterizing polymers. Many new worked examples and study problems have been added. The new material includes: new chapters devoted to polymer surfaces and polymer blends; discussions on solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance methods, self-assembled polymers, scaling law basics, polymer processing, hyperbranched dendrimers, and the kinetics of polymerization; and current research interests, such as polyolefins, thermoset plastics, pyroelectric and piezoelectric polymers, supercritical fluids, biomedical applications, film formation, and natural polymers. "Introduction to Physical Polymer Science, Third Edition" continues to be the ideal resource for students and professional chemists, chemical engineers, materials scientists, and polymer scientists.
