By Paul C. Painter, Michael M. Coleman

T his booklet is instantaneously an advent to polymers and an inventive invitation to the sector of polymer technological know-how and engineering as a complete, together with plastics and plastics processing. Created by means of of the best-known scientists in the US, the textual content explains and is helping scholars in addition to pros relish all significant themes in polymer chemistry and engineering: polymerization synthesis and kinetics, functions of likelihood idea, constitution and morphology, thermal and resolution houses, mechanical houses, organic houses and plastics processing tools. necessities of Polymer technology and Engineering, designed to supercede many ordinary texts (including the authors'), is exclusive in a couple of methods. precise recognition has been paid to explaining basics and delivering high-level visuals. moreover, the textual content is replete with attractive profiles of polymer chemists and their discoveries. The ebook explains the technological know-how of polymer engineering, and while, tells the tale of the sphere from its beginnings to the current, indicating whilst and the way polymer discoveries have performed a job in background and society. The ebook comes good built with examine questions and difficulties and is acceptable for a one- or two-semester path for chemistry scholars on the undergraduate and graduate degrees. The authors may have availible an teachers workbook, which incorporates a energy element Presentation, availible on a CD-ROM via finish of summer season (2008).

1 Polyurethane Products and Chemistry Polyurethanes (PUs) are a class of polymers containing carbamate (or urethane) link in the backbone of polymer chains. The carbamate link is formed by a reaction of isocyanate group with hydroxyl group. Polyurethanes, in general, contain three components: a polyol, diisocyante, and a chain extender. Polyols used for this purposes are generally macromonomers made of oligomers or polymers with more than two reactive hydroxl groups. The diisocyantes used can be aromatic diisocyantes such as 4,4′-diphenylmethane diisocyanate (MDI) or toluene diisocyanate (TDI) or aliphatic diisocyanates such as hexamethylene diisocyante or isophorone diisocynate (IPDI).
