This authoritative, widely cited book has been used all over the world. The fourth edition incorporates the latest developments in the field while maintaining the core objectives of previous editions: to correlate properties with chemical structure and to describe methods that permit the estimation and prediction of numerical properties from chemical structure, i.e. nearly all properties of the solid, liquid, and dissolved states of polymers.
chemical engineers and polymer technologists; material scientists and material science engineers in the laboratory, in engineering departments and in development teams; graduate and PhD students; scientists active in the polymer field
