This book reflects the recent progress made in the field of scattering in polymers. A wide range of scattering studies on different polymer systems, including block copolymers, semicrystalline polymers, complex fluids, multicomponent systems, polymeric surfaces, and polymer processing are included, as well as new experimental techniques and theoretical treatments. This volume provides a comprehensive reference for those researchers who need to know how scattering techniques can be used to tackle different polymer problems, and is ideal for graduate polymer scientists studying scattering techniques.

Industry Reviews

"This volume consists primarily of papers presented at the August 1998 symposium, but also incorporates several chapters solicited for the book alone. Chemists from around the world explore both experimental and theoretical aspects of scattering, emphasizing the applications of scattering to polymer
technology. After an introduction, topics covered include scattering methods, crystallization and morphology of polymers, biopolymers and polymer solutions, block polymers, liquid crystalline polymers, and blends and flows."--SciTech Book News
"The book with 32 reviews/papers is a great source of the up to date infomration on scattering from polymers. All the articles are carefully prepared by the noted scientists in the areas. The editors and contributors provide a good insight of current status of polymer scattering research, and the
book is valuable for both academic and industrial scientists." Polymer News
