This new volume presents leading-edge research in the rapidly changing and evolving field of polymer science as well as on chemical processing. The topics in the book reflect the diversity of research advances in the production and application of modern polymeric materials and related areas, focusing on the preparation, characterization, and applications of polymers. Also covered are various manufacturing techniques. The book will help to fill the gap between theory and practice in industry.

This new book:
• is a collection of articles that highlights some important areas of current interest in polymer products and chemical processes
• gives an up-to-date and thorough exposition of the present state of the art of polymer analysis
• familiarizes the reader with new aspects of the techniques used in the examination of polymers, including chemical, physico-chemical and purely physical methods of examination
• describes the types of techniques now available to the polymer chemist and technician, and discusses their capabilities, limitations and applications
• provides a balance between materials science and mechanics aspects, basic and applied research, and high technology and high volume (low cost) composite development

Editors: Richard A. Pethrick, PhD, DSc
Research Professor and Professor Emeritus, Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, UK

Professor R. A. Pethrick, PhD, DSc, is currently a research professor and professor emeritus in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde, Glasglow, Scotland. He was Burmah Professor in Physical Chemistry and has been a member of the staff there since 1969. He has published over 400 papers and edited and written several books. Recently he has edited several publications concerned with the techniques for the characterization of the molar mass of polymers and also study of their morphology. He currently holds a number of EPSRC grants and is involved with Knowledge Transfer Programmes involving three local companies involved in production of articles made out of polymeric materials. He has current research which involves AWE and has acted as a consultant for BAe Systems in the area of explosives and a company involved in the production of anticorrosive coatings.

Dr. Pethrick is on the editorial boards of several polymer and adhesion journals and was on the Royal Society of Chemistry Education Board. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Royal Society of Chemistry, and the Institute of Materials, Metals and Mining. Previously he chaired the ‘Review of Science Provision 16-19’ in Scotland and the restructuring of the HND provision in Chemistry. He was involved in the creation of the revised regulations for accreditation by the Royal Society of Chemistry of the MSci level qualifications in Chemistry. He was for a number of years the Deputy Chair of the EPSRC IGDS panel and involved in a number of reviews of the courses developed and offered under this program. He has been a member of the review panel for polymer science in Denmark and Sweden and the National Science Foundation in the USA.
