An exceptional resource on polymer properties and behavior for scientists and practitioners

Owing to their versatility and wide range of applications, polymeric materials are of great commercial importance. The physical and chemical properties of polymeric materials influence their processing and use, so familiarity with the properties and behavior is not only interesting but also crucial in order to ensure proper utilization of such polymers.

Based on Wiley′s renowned Encyclopedia of Polymer Science and Technology, Properties and Behavior of Polymers provides comprehensive, up–to–date details on the key physical properties of polymers and the resulting characteristics and behavior, including viscoelasticity, flammability, miscibility, optical properties, surface properties, and more.

Written by prominent scholars from industry, academia, and research institutions from around the globe, this reference features more than forty self–contained articles, providing unparalleled coverage of such topics as:

  • Acoustic properties

  • Photorefraction

  • Adhesion

  • Rheological measurements

  • Degradation

  • Scratch behavior

  • Depolymerization

  • Self–healing polymers

  • Electrically active polymers

  • Solubility

  • Glass transition

  • Thermal properties

  • Impact resistance

  • Transitions and relaxations

  • Micromechanical properties

  • Transport properties

  • Microstructure

  • Weathering

  • Orientation

  • Yield and crazing

Properties and Behavior of Polymers is an ideal resource for chemists, chemical engineers, materials scientists, process engineers, and consultants, and serves as a valuable addition to libraries in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, industry, academia, and government.
