This comprehensive textbook describes the synthesis, characterization and technical and engineering applications of polymers. Offering a broad and balanced introduction to the basic concepts of macromolecular chemistry and to the synthesis and physical chemistry of polymers, it is the ideal text for graduate students and advanced Masters students starting out in polymer science. Building on the basic principles of organic chemistry and thermodynamics, it provides an easily understandable and highly accessible introduction to the topic. Step by step, readers will obtain a detailed and well-founded understanding of this vibrant and increasingly important subject area at the intersection between chemistry, physics, engineering and the life sciences.Following an approach different from many other textbooks in the field, the authors, with their varying backgrounds (both from academia and industry), offer a new perspective. Starting with a clear and didactic introduction, the book discusses basic terms and sizes and shapes of polymers and macromolecules. There then follow chapters dedicated to polymers in solutions, molar mass determination, and polymers in the solid state, incl. (partially) crystalline or amorphous polymers as well as their application as engineering materials. Based on this information, the authors explain the most important polymerization methods and techniques. Often neglected in other textbooks, there are chapters on technical polymers, functional polymers, elastomers and liquid crystalline polymers, as well as polymers and the environment. An overview of current trends serves to generate further interest in present and future developments in the field.This book is the English translation of the successful German textbook "Polymere", which was awarded the Chemical Industry in Germany’s 2015 literature Prize (“Literaturpreis des Fonds der Chemischen Industrie”) for its innovative, novel approach, and its good accessibility and readability, while at the same time providing comprehensive coverage of the field of polymer science.

English translation of the successful German textbook "Polymere", winner of the Chemical Industry in Germany's 2015 literature prize


A comprehensive and modern textbook, combining physical-chemical concepts with the chemistry of polymers

Offers an innovative approach; a clear structure provides the readers with an understanding of physical-chemical properties of polymers, then details synthetic techniques and applications.

A balanced but comprehensive treatment: readers learn about the properties of polymers, how to make them, and how and where they can be applied

Including forewords by Prof. Dr. Krzysztof Matyjaszewski and Prof. Dr. Rolf M?lhaupt

From the reviews of the German textbook "Polymere":“Dieses Lehrbuch eignet sich für jeden, der in die makromolekulare Chemie der Kunststoffe vertieft einsteigen muss oder möchte. ... präsentiert das Buch ein leicht verständliches und dennoch tief gehendes Bild dieser sehr dynamischen und immer wichtiger werdenden Wissenschaft in der Schnittmenge von Chemie, Physik, Ingenieurwissenschaften. ... anschauliche, auch für den Laien gut verständliche Beschreibung der wichtigsten Verarbeitungsmethoden ...” (BB, in: wip Wissens- und Innovations-Netzwerk Polymertechnik, wip-kunstoffe.de, 31. Juli 2015) “... Das Lehrbuch richtet sich an Einsteiger und Fortgeschrittene in der makromolekularen Chemie gleichermaßen. ... besonderes Bonbon für die Leser sind die mit Bedacht ausgewählten Experimentalbeispiele, die auf der langjährigen praktischen Erfahrung der Autoren beruhen und dem Leser beim Verständnis oder einfach beim Nachvollziehen des Stoffs helfen. ... eignet sich aber auch als Nachschlagewerk für Einsteiger in der Industrie oder für mittelständische Unternehmer, die sich mit Polymeren beschäftigen ...”(Andreas Greiner, in: Nachrichten aus der Chemie, Heft 7-8, 1. Juli 2014)
“... Das Werk enthält zahlreiche Abbildungen ... und Tabellen ... die gute Übersichtlichkeit bei der Darstellung chemischer Formeln und des Verlaufs von Reaktionen. Dieses empfehlenswerte Lehrbuch baut auf Grundkenntnissen der Organischen Chemie und insbesondere der Thermodynamik auf und richtet sich zum einen an Studierende der Chemie und bestimmter Studiengänge aus dem Gebiet der lngenieurwissenschaften, zum anderen an auf dem weit verzweigten Gebiet der Polymeretätige Forscher und Anwendungstechniker.” ( Dr. Dieter Holmer, in: CLB, Jg. 65, Heft 7, August 2014)
“Ein Buch, dass alle gängigen Polymere umfassend beschreibt. Es werden die Eigenschaften sehr gut und verständlich erklärt, die Herstellungsverfahren beschrieben (recht kurz). Viele sehr gute Abbildungen helfen beim Verständnis der komplexen Materie. Das Buch ist gleichermaßen für Einsteiger ohne große Vorkenntnisse der Makromoleküle und für Fachleute geeignet, die mehr Details wissen wollen.” (Dr.-Ing. Dieter Veit, RWTH Aachen)
