Summary:This book, designed to appeal to chemists both working in and new and to the area of polymer synthesis, contains detailed instructions for the preparation of a wide-range of polymers by a wide variety of different techniques. It also describes how this synthetic methodology can be applied to the development of new materials. - ;This book has been designed to appeal to both chemists working in, and new to, the area of polymer synthesis.

Editor Davis (Univ. of Reading) offers a well-documented treasure of small-scale methods used to perform a very wide variety of polymerizations. The instructions are precise and tested. Conditions, sources of unusual materials, purification methods, and yields are given. Davis recruited a group of colleagues to contribute their knowledge and experience to this project, and the result is a group of synthetic procedures that should be ideal for the teaching laboratory. Included among the methods are synthesis of "living" polymers, conducting polymers, dendrimers, imprinted polymers, and liquid crystalline polymers. It is a good complement to the work by Wayne R. Sorenson, Wilfred Sweeny, and Tod W. Campbell, Preparative Methods of Polymer Chemistry (3rd ed., 2001). ^BSumming Up: Recommended.
