The new edition of a classic text and reference
The large chains of molecules known as polymers are currently used in everything from "wash and wear" clothing to rubber tires to protective enamels and paints. Yet the practical applications of polymers are only increasing; innovations in polymer chemistry constantly bring both improved and entirely new uses for polymers onto the technological playing field. Principles of Polymerization, Fourth Edition presents the classic text on polymer synthesis, fully updated to reflect today's state of the art. New and expanded coverage in the Fourth Edition includes:
* Metallocene and post-metallocene polymerization catalysts
* Living polymerizations (radical, cationic, anionic)
* Dendrimer, hyperbranched, brush, and other polymer architectures and assemblies
* Graft and block copolymers
* High-temperature polymers
* Inorganic and organometallic polymers
* Conducting polymers
* Ring-opening polymer ization
* In vivo and in vitro polymerization
Appropriate for both novice and advanced students as well as professionals, this comprehensive yet accessible resource enables the reader to achieve an advanced, up-to-date understanding of polymer synthesis. Different methods of polymerization, reaction parameters for synthesis, molecular weight, branching and crosslinking, and the chemical and physical structure of polymers all receive ample coverage. A thorough discussion at the elementary level prefaces each topic, with a more advanced treatment following. Yet the language throughout remains straightforward and geared towards the student.
Extensively updated, Principles of Polymerization, Fourth Edition provides an excellent textbook for today's students of polymer chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science, as well as a current reference for the researcher or other practitioner working in these areas.

About the Author:

GEORGE ODIAN received his PhD from Columbia University. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Chemistry at the College of Staten Island of the City University of New York. He has previously served as professor of chemistry and chairman, Division of Pure and Applied Sciences at Richmond College of CUNY, assistant professor at Columbia University, research director of RAI Research Company, and research chemist at Thiokol Chemical Company. He has written over sixty research publications and authored both taped and short courses for the American Chemical Society. He is also the coauthor of four books in general, organic, and biochemistry.

Review:

"...this book would be useful...as a reference tool..." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, March/April 2006)

"Chemists, chemical engineers, and material scientists who want to know more about the chemistry and structural control of polymers would find extensive information in this book..." (MRS Bulletin, February 2006)

“...the most comprehensive treatment of this topic that I have encountered ... an essential component of the book collection of any research group involved in polymer synthesis.” (Advanced Materials, 2005; Vol., 17; 16)

“...an excellent textbook for today’s students of polymer chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science, as well as a current reference for the researcher....” (Apollit, 2005)

"This is the fourth edition of what has not only become a classic textbook but is most useful as a reference book...the author...writes clear and precise sentences and makes what can be a dry subject interesting to read.” (E-STREAMS, October 2004)

"...an admirable text for teaching...and also serves as a valuable reference...a real investment and an important desk reference for polymer synthesis chemists." (Polymer News)
