Polymers, Paperback Book


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.
