This successful textbook undergoes a change of character in the third edition.  Where earlier editions covered organic polymer chemistry, the third edition covers both physical and organic chemistry. Thus kinetics and thermodynamics of polymerization reactions are discussed.

This edition is also distinct from all other polymer textbooks because of its coverage of such currently hot topics as photonic polymers, electricity conducting polymers, polymeric materials for immobilization of reagents and drug release, organic solar cells, organic light emitting diodes.

This textbook contains review questions at the end of every chapter, references for further reading, and numerous examples of commercially important processes.

New material on the chemistry of polymeric materials for special applications. These subjects are currently of considerable interest in industry and academia

Only Polymer textbook that combines Organic and Physical Chemistry. Thus, for instance, in each chapter that deals with polymer preparations, both the kinetics and the thermodynamics of the reactions are discussed

All figures are updated in this edition

Physical properties of polymers are expanded and placed into a separate chapter and include such subjects as elasticity and rheology of polymers as well as a thorough discussion of the transition temperatures. This is done to accommodate students who do not receive a separate course on physical properties of polymers

Physical Properties and Physical Chemistry of Polymers
Free-Radical Chain-Growth Polymerization
Ionic Chain-Growth Polymerization
Ring-Opening Polymerizations
Common Chain-Growth Polymers
Step-Growth Polymerization and Step-Growth Polymers
Naturally Occurring Polymers
Reactivity and Chemical Modifications of Polymers
Polymeric Materials for Special Applications.

A. Ravve received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Utah in 1950, and was Post Doctoral Fellow at both the University of Michigan (1950-1951) and Iowa State University (1951-1952). He worked for 28 years with Continental Group, Incorporated, mainly as a Research Manager, and subsequently as Senior Consultant in syntheses and utilization of polymeric materials. He also taught evening courses in polymer chemistry at several institutions of higher learning in the Chicago area, from 1960-1991. Currently he does consulting in polymer chemistry.
