Learn how to take full advantage of a broad range of thermal analysis techniques
Thermal Analysis of Polymers: Fundamentals and Applications emphasizes the practical uses of thermal analysis, enabling readers to take full advantage of its capabilities as a polymer characterization tool in their laboratories. The book offers essential theoretical background; however, it focuses on how to perform a broad range of thermal analysis measurements and tests, with detailed coverage of methods, applications, instrumentation, and calibration. Moreover, it helps readers correctly interpret their results.
This book features a team of authors whose expertise spans all the thermal analysis techniques and applications covered in the book. Their advice is based not only on thorough knowledge of the literature, but also their own hands-on experience working in the lab. Among the topics covered are:
Differential scanning calorimetry
Thermomechanical analysis and thermodilatometry
Dynamic mechanical analysis
Micro- and nano-scale local thermal analysis
Each chapter guides readers through the applications of thermal analysis for polymer char-acterization, with detailed examples that show how to perform each step. References guide readers to the primary literature for further investigation into each topic.
Following this book's step-by-step guidance, chemists and engineers new to thermal analysis techniques, whether in industry, government, or academia, can quickly learn to use them to generate high-quality results. For more experienced researchers, the book enables them to expand their repertoire to include a broader range of sophisticated techniques and applications.About the Author:
Joseph D. Menczel, PhD, a recognized expert in thermal analysis of polymers with some thirty years of industrial and academic experience, is Assistant Technical Director at Alcon Laboratories. He has researched more than 120 polymeric systems in which he studied calibration of DSCs, glass transition, nucleation, crystallization, melting, stability, mechanical and micro-mechanical properties of polymers, and polymer-water interactions. Dr. Menczel holds six patents and is the author of seventy scholarly papers. He is the author of two chapters in the bookThermal Characterization of Polymeric Materials. In conducting DSC experiments, Dr. Menczel found a crystal/amorphous interface in semicrystalline polymers, which later became known as the rigid amorphous phase. He is also credited with developing the temperature calibration of DSCs for cooling experiments.
R. Bruce Prime, PhD, is a consultant to industry and government and a recognized authority on the cure and properties of cross-linked polymer systems. During his thirty-year career with IBM, he led teams responsible for developing and implementing polymer applications for printer and information storage technologies. He holds four patents and is the author of more than fifty technical papers and the chapter on thermosets in Thermal Characterization of Polymeric Materials. Dr. Prime is a Fellow of SPE and NATAS and was the 1989 recipient of the Mettler-Toledo Award in Thermal Analysis. He maintains the Web site www.primethermosets.com.
