Description

Applications of Polymer Spectroscopy focuses on the use of spectroscopy for the determination of polymer structure. This book is divided into three general areas of spectroscopy: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and mass spectroscopy. This text is comprised of 16 chapters and begins with a discussion on the applications of NMR spectroscopy, including carbon-13 NMR, proton NMR, and fluorine-19 NMR. The next section considers infrared spectroscopy, with special consideration to the Fourier transform method and the dynamic method of handling the examination of polymer films. The book then examines the applications of mass spectroscopy, which include the usual characterization of decomposition products both by direct and indirect means and by stressing the polymer. The use of chemiluminescence, Raman spectroscopy, and electron spin resonance methods is also covered. The last chapter describes the mass spectrometry of thermally treated polymers. This book is a valuable resource for scientists, students, and researchers in fields ranging from polymer science and materials science to chemistry and engineering.
