Polymer Characterization
Laboratory Techniques and Analysis
by Nicholas P. Cheremisinoff

Polymer Characterization provides an overview of polymer characterization test methods.

The methods and instrumentation described represent modern analytical techniques useful to researchers, product development specialists, and quality control experts in polymer synthesis and manufacturing.

Engineers, polymer scientists and technicians will find Polymer Characterization useful in selecting approaches and techniques applicable to characterizing molecular, compositional, rheological, and thermodynamic properties of elastomers and plastics.

It is essential that both R&D laboratories as well as quality control functions be versed in the various techniques described in Polymer Characterization in order to properly design their products and to ensure the highest quality polymers on the market place.

Polymer Characterization is particularly useful in introducing standard polymer characterization laboratory techniques to technicians and engineers beginning their careers in polymer manufacturing and product development areas.

A portion of Polymer Characterization is comprised of appendices providing definitions of testing and product characterization terms.

These sections are intended to provide the reader with a practical source of fundamental information.
