An Updated Edition of the Classic Text

Polymers constitute the basis for the plastics, rubber, adhesives, fiber, and coating industries. The Fourth Edition of Introduction to Physical Polymer Science acknowledges the industrial success of polymers and the advancements made in the field while continuing to deliver the comprehensive introduction to polymer science that made its predecessors classic texts.

The Fourth Edition continues its coverage of amorphous and crystalline materials, glass transitions, rubber elasticity, and mechanical behavior, and offers updated discussions of polymer blends, composites, and interfaces, as well as such basics as molecular weight determination. Thus, interrelationships among molecular structure, morphology, and mechanical behavior of polymers continue to provide much of the value of the book.

Newly introduced topics include:

  • Nanocomposites, including carbon nanotubes and exfoliated montmorillonite clays
  • The structure, motions, and functions of DNA and proteins, as well as the interfaces of polymeric biomaterials with living organisms
  • The glass transition behavior of nano-thin plastic films

In addition, new sections have been included on fire retardancy, friction and wear, optical tweezers, and more.

Introduction to Physical Polymer Science, Fourth Edition provides both an essential introduction to the field as well as an entry point to the latest research and developments in polymer science and engineering, making it an indispensable text for chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, and polymer science and engineering students and professionals.

Beginning Excel What-If Data Analysis Tools: Getting Started with Goal Seek, Data Tables, Scenarios, and Solver
Excel’s “what-if” data analysis tools let you experiment with your data to project future results. In turn, these predictions will lead to better decision making and unlock the mystery of many business analysis scenarios. For example, what-if data analysis tools will enable you to forecast how lowering the price per...

Web Copy That Sells: The Revolutionary Formula for Creating Killer Copy Every Time
It never fails. When people ask me what I do for a living, and I say, “I write web copy,” I’m met with blank stares. Web copy is such a new term even those who have an Internet presence hardly recognize it. I quickly explain, “Web copy simply means the words that make visitors to your website pull out their credit cards and...

The Two W's of Journalism: The Why and What of Public Affairs Reporting
Public affairs journalism is a subcategory of all journalism, but it lies at the core of the profession because the practice of journalism is, finally, inseparable from the practice of democracy. Doing journalism of any sort requires two important sets of talents—reporting the news and presenting the news. For the most part, journalists'...
