This handbook offers concise information on the properties of polymeric materials, particularly those most relevant to the areas of physical chemistry and chemical physics. In the second edition of Physical Properties of Polymers Handbook, each chapter has been extensively updated and revised. The number of chapters have increased from 52 to 63 to include novel polymeric structures, specifically rotaxanes and related materials, self-assembly materials, foldamer supramolecular structures, tribology, mechanical properties of single molecules, and dendrimers, as well as reinforcing phases in polymers, including carbon black, silica, clays and other layered fillers, POSS, carbon nanotubes, and reinforcement theory. The study of complex materials is highly interdisciplinary, and new findings are scattered among a large selection of scientific and engineering journals. Physical Properties of Polymers Handbook is a comprehensive and authoritative compilation that brings together data and supporting information from experts in the different disciplines contributing to the rapidly growing area of polymers and complex materials.
