The CRC Handbook of Enthalpy Data of Polymer-Solvent Systems presents data that is as essential to the production, process design, and use of polymers as it is to understanding the physical behavior and intermolecular interactions in polymer solutions and in developing thermodynamic polymer models.
Providing an all-encompassing collection of current enthalpy data for all types of polymer solutions, this handbook is a ready companion with Christian Wohlfarth’s previously published handbooks of thermodynamic data for copolymer solutions, aqueous polymer solutions, and polymer solutions at elevated pressures, which contain only a small amount of enthalpic data in comparison to the data presented here. This volume contains 1770 data sets that include enthalpies of mixing and dilution for the entire concentration range as well as partial enthalpies of mixing and solution at infinite dilution. Special appendices allow scientists to access specific systems and data easily.
The CRC Handbook of Enthalpy Data of Polymer-Solvent Systems is a practical, one-stop resource that allows polymer chemists, biochemists, chemical engineers, materials scientists, and physical chemists involved in both industrial and laboratory processes to quickly retrieve relevant information as needed.

Christian Wohlfarth is Associate Professor for Physical Chemistry at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany. He earned his degree in chemistry in 1974 and wrote his Ph.D. thesis on investigations on the second dielectric virial coefficient and the intermolecular pair potential in 1977, both at Carl Schorlemmer Technical University Merseburg. In 1985, he wrote his habilitation thesis, Phase Equilibria in Systems with Polymers and Copolymers, at Technical University Merseburg. Since then, Dr. Wohlfarth.s main research has been related to polymer systems. Currently, his research topics are molecular thermodynamics, continuous thermodynamics, phase equilibria in polymer mixtures and solutions, polymers in supercritical fluids, PVT behavior and equations of state, and sorption properties of polymers, about which he has published approximately 100 original papers. He has written the books: Vapor-Liquid Equilibria of Binary Polymer Solutions, CRC Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions, CRC Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Aqueous Polymer Solutions, and CRC Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Polymer Solutions at Elevated Pressures. He is working on the evaluation, correlation, and calculation of thermophysical properties of pure compounds and binary mixtures resulting in six volumes of the Landolt-Börnstein New Series. He is a respected contributor to the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.
