Polymer Physics thoroughly details the fundamental concepts of polymer melts, solutions, and gels in terms of both static structure and dynamics. It goes beyond other introductory polymer texts, deriving the essential tools of the physical polymer chemist or engineer without skipping any steps.

The book is divided into four parts. Part One summarizes the necessary concepts of a first course on polymers and covers the conformations of single polymer chains. Part Two deals with the thermodynamics of polymer solutions and melts, including chain conformations in those states. Part Three applies the concepts of Part Two to the formation and properties of polymer networks. Part Four explains the essential aspects of how polymers move in both melt and solution states.

The text assumes a working knowledge of calculus, physics, and chemistry, but no prior knowledge of polymers. It is ideal for upper-level undergraduate and first-year graduate courses in Condensed Matter Physics, Soft Materials, and Polymers.

Review:


"...the book being reviewed is simply great. Judging by its clear style, its selection of topics, or its self contained material, it is an extremely well thought out, thorough, and compeltely laudable book in every way...This is a book worth reading."--Journal of Statistical Physics

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is a polymer physics textbook for upper level undergraduates and first year graduate students. Any student with a working knowledge of calculus, physics and chemistry should be able to read this book. The essential tools of the polymer physical chemist or engineer are derived in this book without skipping any steps. The book is a self-contained treatise that could also serve as a useful reference for scientists and engineers working with polymers. While no priorknowledge of polymers is assumed, the book goes far beyond introductory polymer texts in the scope of what is covered. The fundamental concepts required to fully understand polymer melts, solutions and gels in terms of both static structure and dynamics are explained in detail. Problems at the endof each Chapter provide the reader with the opportunity to apply what has been learned to practice. The book is divided into four parts. After an introduction in Chapter 1, where the necessary concepts from a first course on polymers are summarized, the conformations of single polymer chains are treated in Part 1. Part 2 deals with the thermodynamics of polymer solutions and melts, including the conformations of chains in those states. Part 3 applies the concepts of Part 2 to the formation and properties of polymer networks. Finally, Part 4 explains the essential aspects of how polymers movein both melt and solution states. In all cases, attention is restricted to concepts that are firmly entrenched in the field. Seller Inventory # AOP9780198520597
