This revised and updated Second Edition of Polymer Synthesis II continues in the tradition of Volume I in presenting detailed laboratory instructions for the preparation of various polymers. Each chapter is organized by functional groups, and each chapter not only presents preparative methods, but also includes a brief introductory summary, reviews of the very latest journal articles and patents, and safety hazards and precautions. Procedures have been chosen on the basis of safety considerations and ease of being carried out with standard laboratory equipment. This comprehensive treatment of each polymer group makes Polymer Synthesis II an indispensable guide for industrial and academic chemists as well as for students in the field.

@qu:"I have been a user of this series for years, and the authors have done a fine job on the second edition of Polymer Syntheses, Volume I." @source:--ELI M. PIERCE, Polytechnic University @qu:"The amount of information provided by this volume is extraordinary: more than 1750 literature citations are included...the book is a valuable source of fundamental and practical information regarding methods of polymer synthesis and is recommended for both personal and library purchase." @source:--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY
Dr. Stanley R. Sandler won the R&D 100 Award offered by the industry in 1990 for a significant commercial process to prepare an important organic intermediate. In addition to this honor, he has over 100 publications involving patents, books, an encyclopedia article, several journal articles, and he is currently a referee for several journals. Sandler received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from Penn State University.
