Principles Of Polymerization is a text on the synthesis of polymers and this edition has been upgraded to reflect the latest trends in the field. Summary Of The Book Principles Of Polymerization is a helpful text for beginners, students and professionals. The book gives its readers a comprehensive understanding on polymer synthesis. It covers reaction parameters for synthesis, methods of polymerization, crosslinking, branching, molecular weight, and physical and chemical structures of polymers. It has been elaborately upgraded to facilitate the understanding of latest topics on polymerization for users, including researchers, professionals and students. The update has been made keeping in view the changes over a decade. Every chapter begins with a detailed discussion of the basics, followed with more advanced discussions on advanced topics. The topics covered in Principles Of Polymerization are nomenclature of polymers, types of polymers, branched, cross-linked and linear polymers, molecular weights, physical state, step polymerization, multi-chain polymerization, process conditions, radical chain polymerization, accessibility of functional groups, step copolymerization, dendritic polymers, inorganic polymers, retardation, inhibition and polymerization of ionic chains. Other topics include Molecular Weight Distribution, Stereochemistry of Polymerization, Cyclization, Chain Copolymerization, Miscellaneous Oxygen Heterocyclics, Emulsion Polymerization, Aldehydes, Effect of Pressure, Chain Transfer, Quantitative Aspects, Statistical Models of Propagation, Carbonyl Polymerization, Lactones, and Halogenation.
