The Definitive Guide to Polymer Principles, Properties, Synthesis,
Applications, and Simulations Now fully revised, Polymer Science
and Technology, Third Edition, systematically reviews the field's
current state and emerging advances. Leading polymer specialist
Joel R. Fried offers modern coverage of both processing principles
and applications in multiple industries, including medicine,
biotechnology, chemicals, and electronics. This edition's new and
expanded coverage ranges from advanced synthesis to the latest drug
delivery applications. New topics include controlled radical
polymerization, click chemistry, green chemistry, block copolymers,
nanofillers, electrospinning, and more. A brand-new chapter offers
extensive guidance for predicting polymer properties, including
additional coverage of group correlations, and new discussions of
the use of topological indices and neural networks. This is also
the first introductory polymer text to fully explain computational
polymer science, including molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo
methods. Simulation concepts are supported with many application
examples, ranging from prediction of PVT values to permeability and
free volume. Fried thoroughly covers synthetic polymer chemistry;
polymer properties in solution and in melt, rubber, and solid
states; and all important categories of plastics. This revised
edition also adds many new calculations, end-of-chapter problems,
and references. In-depth coverage includes * Polymer synthesis:
step- and chain-growth; bulk, solution, suspension, emulsion,
solid-state, and plasma; ionic liquids, and macromers; and genetic
engineering * Amorphous and crystalline states, transitions,
mechanical properties, and solid-state characterization * Polymers
and the environment: degradation, stability, and more * Additives,
blends, block copolymers, and composites-including interpenetrating
networks, nanocomposites, buckyballs, carbon nanotubes, graphene,
and POSS * Biopolymers, natural polymers, fibers, thermoplastics,
elastomers, and thermosets * Engineering and specialty polymers,
from polycarbonates to ionic polymers and high-performance fibers *
Polymer rheology, processing, and modeling * Correlations and
simulations: group contribution, topological indices, artificial
neural networks, molecular dynamics, and Monte Carlo simulations
