The Elements of Polymer Science and Engineering 3e is a textbook for one or two-semester introductory courses in polymer science and engineering taught primarily to senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students in a variety of disciplines, but primarily chemical engineering and materials science. Since the publication of the second edition in 1999, the field of polymers has advanced considerably. A key feature of the third edition is the inclusion of new concepts in existing chapters as well as new chapters covering selected contemporary topics such as behavior of natural polymers, polymer nanocomposites and use of polymers in nanotechnology. Existing chapters have been completely reorganized to become more aligned with how instructors currently teach the course. In addition there are several enhancements to the book’s pedagogy that make it more appealing to both instructors and students, including the addition of numerous worked examples and new figures to better illustrate key concepts, and the addition of a large number of end-of-chapter exercises, many of them based on recently published research and relevant industrial data.
