Название: Polymer Science and Technology
Автор: Joel R. Fried
This textbook provides a good introduction to polymers, their processing, applications, and properties. The book assumes minimal prior knowledge of polymers, and begins with a simple intro to properties such as glass transition temperature, molecular weight, thermoplastic versus thermoset.
Electrical, mechanical, and chemical properties of polymers are discussed and related to the structure and composition of the material.
The book is organized very well. It includes dedicated chapters on synthesis, processing, degradation, and for the different classes of polymers. Each chapter is short and can stand alone by itself. A short list of references is also provided at the end of each chapter, and these are organized according to the different sections in each chapter.
The level of the text is appropriate for juniors or seniors in engineering or chemistry. The math is kept at a simple level; nothing harder than integral calculus, and there are a lot of pictures and diagrams. The amount and scope of information also warrants purchasing this as a general reference for polymers.
I recommend this book for those who are learning about, or teaching about polymers.
