This introductory text covers the basics of polymer chemistry and engineering, as well as structure-property relationships in plastics. It offers a survey of the basic chemistry of monomers and their conversion to the various polymers, the essentials of structure and performance, rheology of polymers as liquids and solids, and mechanical properties. Problem sets are included for advanced undergraduates in chemical engineering or materials science.All this is broadly discussed, ending with modem issues like composites, ecology and future prediction, followed by up-to-date informa tion and data about old as well as novel high performance polymers.
