The book, divided in 4 main chapters, deals with:
- Different kinds of polymerization reactions as well as their kinetic aspects.
- Detailed spectral, thermal and morphological characterization of polymers.
- Identification of polymers with FT-IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR spectroscopies.
- Thermal characterization of polymers through DSC and TGA techniques.
- Structural characterization with XRD.
- Purification procedures of monomers and solvents.
- 26 experiments and general analytical techniques to characterize common polymers.
The book will be useful to professionals in the production as well as R&D units of polymer industries.
