Summary:This reference book provides a comprehensive overview, from A (ABS (ACRYLONITRILE BUTADIENE STYRENE)) to Z (ZIEGLER POLYMERIZATION PROCESS), of the nature, manufacture, structure, properties, processing, and applications of commercially available polymers. The main feature of the book is the range of topics from both theory and practice, which means that physical properties and applications of the materials concerned are described in terms of the theory, chemistry and manufacturing constraints which apply to them. It will therefore enable scientists to understand the commercial implications of their work as well as providing polymer technologists, engineers and designers with a theoretical background.
