Polymer Handbook by J. Brandrup, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble

The Polymer Handbook is a unique and broadly recognized source of information about a large number of polymeric macromolecules. It contains a vast array of data for polymers, monomers and other ancillary topics that are required for experimental and theoretical research and applications of polymers.

Preface
The purpose of the Polymer Handbook is to bring together
the data and constants needed in theoretical and experimental polymer research. All polymer researchers have
experienced the frustration of searching for data in the everexpanding polymer literature and know the difficulties
involved in trying to locate a particular constant that is
buried in a long journal article. The contributors to this
Handbook have taken on the arduous task of searching the
literature and compiling the data and constants that polymer
chemists, polymer physicists, and polymer engineers are
likely to need.
The 520 and odd tables in this Handbook are divided into
eight sections. The first lists the IUPAC nomenclature rules
for polymers and the International System of Units.
Although several naming conventions exist in the technical
literature, IUPAC names permit a consistent listing of all
polymers. Section II contains data and constants needed for
polymer synthesis, kinetic mechanisms, and thermodynamic studies of polymerization and depolymerization
reactions. Sections III and IV contain physical constants
of monomers, solvents, and oligomers. Section V lists the
physical constants of many important commercial polymers. Section VI and VII cover the solid state properties of
polymers and the properties of polymer solutions. Section
VIII of the Handbook lists the commonly used abbreviations or acronyms for polymers and Chemical Abstract
Registry Numbers, and gives suggestions for electronic data
searching for polymer information. This section should also
be consulted in the few cases where contributors have not
used IUPAC nomenclature.
As in the previous editions, the Polymer Handbook
concentrates on synthetic polymers, poly(saccharides) and
derivatives, and oligomers. Few data on biopolymers are
included. Spectroscopic data as well as data needed by
engineers and designers, such as mechanical and rheological data, are minimized, since many excellent compilations
exist elsewhere. Only fundamental constants and parameters that refer to the polymer molecule, that describe the
solid state of polymer molecules, or that describe polymer
solutions, were compiled. Constants that depend on
processing conditions or on sample history were not
emphasized, as they can be found in existing plastics
handbooks and encyclopedias.

The Polymer Handbook is a unique and broadly recognized source of information about a large number of polymeric macromolecules. It contains a vast array of data for polymers, monomers and other ancillary topics that are required for experimental and theoretical research and applications of polymers.

The Polymer Blends Handbook is a fundamental reference work on polymer blends, covering all aspects: science, engineering, technology and application. It will appeal to anyone working in the field of blends, researchers as well as engineers. The Handbook is designed to be the source of information on all aspects of polymer blends. To this end the Editors have put together an international group of highly respected contributors, each an expert in his chosen subjects.
