Description

Macromolecules is an introductory book about macromolecules, specifically about the fundamental aspects of macromolecules, such as their nature, the ways they are formed, and their behavior. This book also focuses on the basics of macromolecules, which includes history, composition, and properties.
The topics covered in this book include polymerization kinetics, chemical reactions, and degradation of macromolecules. This book also discusses biological molecules, including naturally occurring materials, synthetic macromolecules, and model compounds. Students majoring in chemistry or other related fields, such as materials engineering, will find this book very useful.
