9780198553984: Introduction to Synthetic Polymers (Oxford Chemistry Series)

Here is the ideal introduction to polymer science for undergraduates studying chemistry, materials science, and related subjects. Throughout, the author focuses on major polymers, offering expert descriptions of how polymer molecules can be synthesized to create tailor-made bulk materials. He also discusses the unique properties of a wide range of specialized polymers, some of which hold exciting potential for use in the future. Helpful exercises--many of which are derived from recent research--are included at the end of each chapter.

Review:

'Anyone asked to devise an introductory course on polymer science could hardly do better than to base it on this book. Anyone currently giving such a course should certainly examine it with a view to making it a primary recommendation.' Alexander S. Dunn, Chemistry and Industry, May 1994

'... well written, up-to-date, and should appeal to the intended undergraduate audience. Students will also benefit from the numerour exercises at the end of each chapter... The format is attractive, with well laid out pages, numerous diagrams, and is generally user-friendly. Overall, a thoroughly recommended book, which I anticipate enjoying for some years to come.' Education in Chemistry

`At the end of each part the book provides a set of exercises to allow readers to test their level of understanding and, in some cases to advance it ... Overall this book is warmly recommended and will undoubtedly prove valuable to undergraduates in chemistry, material science and related subjects.' Dr Dorel Feldman, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada

`There are lamentably few introductory texts in this area, which effectively address the needs of undergraduate teaching: Dr Campbell's book succeeds in this ambition through the combined merits of its structure and its content ... this book is a lucid and approachable introductory text ... Its presentation is excellent and it represents good value. I would recommend it wholeheartedly both to students and to professional scientists.' M.D. Purbrick, Polymer International, Vol. 37, No. 4 August 1995

`... the book is easy to read and covers the most important aspects of polymer science, and thus is an ideal entry for undergraduate students or non-chemists to the exciting field of synthetic polymers.' Advanced Materials, October 1995

`... the book is easy to read and covers the most important aspects of polymer science, and thus is an ideal entry for undergraduate students or non-chemists to the exciting field of synthetic polymers' Advanced Materials, October 1995

`well written, up-to-date, and should appeal to the intended undergraduate audience ... Students will also benefit from the numerous exercises at the end of each chapter ... a thoroughly recommended book' John Nicholson, Education in Chemistry, January 1995

`This book is an excellent introduction to polymers, giving a concise yet amply detailed view of the subject, without being swamped with marginal unnecessary material.' F. Gregg, Chemistry in Britain

`While it focuses clearly on chemistry, it is informed by the needs of the real world. The book is well written, up-to-date, and should appeal to the intended undergraduate audience. Students will also benefit from the numerous exercises at the end of each chapter, most of which are drawn from the recent research literature. The format is attractive, with well laid out pages, nuymerous diagrams, and is generally user friendly. Overall, a thoroughly recommended book, which I anticipate enjoying for some years to come.' John Nicholson, Education in Chemistry, January 1995
