Physical Chemistry Research for Engineering and Applied Science, Set of 3 Volume

This 3-volume set covers a significant amount of new research and applications on physical chemical for engineering and applied sciences. Volume 1 presents the principles and technological implications of industrial chemistry and biochemical physics. It discusses new discoveries and realizations of the importance of key concepts and emphases are placed on the underlying fundamentals and on acquisition of a broad and comprehensive grasp of the field as a whole.

Volume 2 presents some fascinating phenomena associated with the remarkable features of high performance polymers and also provides an update on applications of modern polymers.
It offers new research on structure–property relationships, synthesis and purification, and potential applications of high performance polymers. The collection of topics in this book reflects the diversity of recent advances in modern polymers with a broad perspective that will be useful for scientists as well as for graduate students and engineers.

In Volume 3, the various categories of high performance materials and their composites are discussed, and the book also provides up-to-date synthesis details, properties, characterization, and applications for such systems in order to give readers and users better information to select the required material.

Together, these three volumes highlight and present some of the most important areas of current interest in biochemical physics and chemical processes, filling the gap between theory and application.
