The Chemistry of Polymers, 5th Edition, is fully updated with the latest developments in polymer science providing a highly readable textbook for those requiring a broad overview of the subject.

Like previous editions, the book continues to explore the subject from an applications point of view, providing a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of polymer science including synthesis, structure, properties, degradation and dendrimers. Recent advances in special topics in polymer chemistry and polymers and the environment are also discussed in an informative and up-to-date manner.

The new edition features additional content on recent developments in new polymer synthesis techniques including reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization, atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) and ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). The book also contains new content on the latest developments in polymer characterisation methods as well as applications of polymers including co-ordination polymers and lithium-polymer batteries.

The book is essential reading for university students, teachers and scientists who wish to acquire an up-to-the-minute overview of polymer science and its many specialised topics in an informative and easy to read style.

"There have been countless books on polymer science and chemistry, some more successful than others, with one of the best known being Brydsons’ Plastics Materials. This book is in the same league, deserving equal reverence but covers the subject more succinctly, making it an excellent first purchase on the topic." "The text is very well written, dealing with a very scientific subject in a clear, easy to read manner." "This is an excellent introduction and overview of the subject. It will be a useful core text for students studying polymers as part of a materials or chemistry degree and will help designers understand the properties of polymers. I would strongly recommend it as a first purchase in this subject area."

“The Chemistry of Polymers”

This is a difficult review to write as the book itself is very good and I've already used it for work references. However, the service provided by Waterstones has been terrible, the book took two and a half weeks... More
