Polymer Syntheses, Volume II presents detailed laboratory instructions for the preparation of different types of polymers. This book provides information pertinent to useful polymer synthesis.

Organized into 10 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of resins derived from urea, melamine, or benzoguanamine. This text then examines the reaction of formaldehyde with hydrogen chloride, which has been shown to lead to the spontaneous production of carcinogen bis(chloromethyl) ether. Other chapters consider the topic of silicone resins or polyorganosiloxanes, as well as the uses of vinyl ether polymers in lacquer resins, adhesives, plasticizers, paints, and copolymer compositions. This book discusses as well the methods of polymerization of acrylic and of methacrylic acid. The final chapter deals with the health and safety aspects of the production of the monomer vinyl chloride.

This book is a valuable resource for industrial and polymer chemists. Students of polymer chemistry will also find this book useful.
