The third edition of this well known textbook discusses the diverse physical states and associated properties of polymeric materials. The contents of the book have been conveniently divided into two general parts, 'Physical States of Polymers' and 'Characterization Techniques'. Written by seven of the leading figures in the polymer science community, this third edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded. As in the second edition, all of the chapters contain general introductory material and comprehensive literature citations designed to give newcomers to the field an appreciation of the subject and how it fits into the general context of polymer science. Containing numerous problem sets and worked examples this third edition provides enough core material for a one semester survey course at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level.

Industry Reviews

Reviews of the second edition: 'The authors are all acknowledged experts in their fields within polymer science and their accounts are authoritative, thorough and clearly written. My overall impression is that this book will be of great value to research workers old and new in polymer science and to post-graduate students studying polymer science as part of their further degree.' Journal of Materials Chemistry 'This second edition is highly recommended as a textbook at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level.' Polymer News 'All in all, it is an excellent book and I strongly recommend it to academic and industrial researchers who want a knowledege of polymer properties ... Those who like me missed the first edition should not miss this second edition.' Chemistry in Britain 'As a modern introduction on a fundamental level, this text is superb ... In addition to its obvious use as an introductory level textbook, this book is recommended to those seeking a broad, authoritative reference source.' Rubber Chemistry Technology 'The book should appeal to both novices and experienced polymer scientists alike, as it contains general introductory material and also comprehensive literature citations ... A useful and well-researched book.' Chemistry & Industry
