Polymer Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Polymer Chemistry
A Practical Approach
in Chemistry
edited by Fred J. Davis

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

It also includes details of well-established techniques, e.g. chain-growth or step-growth processes together with more up-to-date examples using methods such as atom-transfer radical polymerization. Less well-known procedures are also included, e.g. electrochemical synthesis of conducting polymers and the preparation of liquid crystalline elastomers with highly ordered structures.

Topics covered include:

  • General polymerization methodology
  • Controlled/"living" polymerization methods
  • The formation of cyclic oligomers during step-growth polymerization
  • The synthesis of conducting polymers based on heterocyclic compounds
  • Dendrimers
  • The preparation of imprinted polymers and liquid crystalline polymers

The main bulk of the text is preceded by an introductory chapter detailing some of the techniques available to the scientist for the characterization of polymers, both in terms of their chemical composition and in terms of their properties as materials.

Polymer Chemistry: A Practical Approach in Chemistry is intended not only for the specialist in polymer chemistry, but also for the organic chemist with little experience who requires a practical introduction to the field.
