9783540236290: Thermal Analysis of Polymeric Materials

Thermal analysis is an old technique. It has been neglected to some degree because developments of convenient methods of measurement have been slow and teaching of the understanding of the basics of thermal analysis is often wanting. Flexible, linear macromolecules, also not as accurately simply called polymers, make up the final, third, class of molecules which only was identified in 1920. Polymers have neverbeenfullyintegratedintothedisciplinesofscienceandengineering. Thisbook is designed to teach thermal analysis and the understanding of all materials, flexible macromolecules, as well as those of the small molecules and rigid macromolecules. The macroscopic tool of inquiry is thermal analysis, and the results are linked to microscopic molecular structure and motion. Measurements of heat and mass are the two roots of quantitative science. The macroscopic heat is connected to the microscopic atomic motion, while the macroscopic mass is linked to the microscopic atomic structure. The macroscopic unitsofmeasurementofheatandmassarethejouleandthegram,chosentobeeasily discernable by the human senses. The microscopic units of motion and structure are 12 10 the picosecond (10 seconds) and the ångstrom (10 meters), chosen to fit the atomic scales. One notes a factor of 10,000 between the two atomic units when expressed in “human” units, second and gram―with one gram being equal to one cubic centimeter when considering water. Perhaps this is the reason for the much better understanding and greater interest in the structure of materials, being closer to human experience when compared to molecular motion.

From the Back Cover:

"Thermal Analysis of Polymeric Materials" systematically treats macroscopic measurements by thermal analysis and the quantitative link to microscopic, molecular structure and mobility. Reversible and irreversible thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum mechanics, and statistical thermodynamics are the roots of the described thermal analysis. The book aims to broaden readers’ understanding of materials and the connection of flexible macromolecules (polymers) to small molecules and rigid macromolecules (minerals, salts, and metals). An effort is made to discover how the long, flexible molecules fit into their small phases which are characterized as microphases or nanophases. Their order ranges from amorphous to mesophase-like and crystalline. Ultimately, it is shown that the basic structure-property-processing triangle is connected to the better-known types of molecules and their common macroscopic phases.

Review:

From the reviews:

"It is not surprising that Wunderlich has written another excellent, comprehensive text. After all, he is one of the most well-respected leaders in the field of physical chemistry of polymers. By stressing the difference betwwen polymers and small molecules, this book provides the reader with an in-depth understanding of the thermal properties of all classes of molecules. Overall, this is one of the most comprehensive texts on thermal analysis of macromolecules. I highly recommend this book for both classroom study and for individuals hungry to expand their knowledge of thermal analysis and materials chemistry. Overall, I give this text an excellent rating." (Julie P. Harmon, J. Am.  Chem. Soc., No. 42, 2005)

"This book is a perfect tool for polymer researchers ... and for researchers ... who want to incorporate polymer science into their studies. ... one of the most comprehensive texts on thermal analysis of macromolecules. ... represents years of effort ... for conveying his vast knowledge ... . contains excellent references ... . I highly recommend this book for both classroom study and for individuals hungry to expand their knowledge ... . I give this text an excellent rating." (Julie P. Harmon, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 127 (42), 2005)

"Macroscopic measurement by thermal analysis and the quantitative link to microscopic, molecular structure and mobility are systematically dealt with in this book. ... The aim of the book is to combine new material with a review of the classical aspects of the subject." (LabPlus international, Vol. 19 (3), June, 2005)
