Description

Ten years after the debut of the expansive CRC Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions, The CRC Handbook of Phase Equilibria and Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions updates and expands the world’s first comprehensive source of this vital data. Author Christian Wohlfarth, a chemical thermodynamicist specializing in phase equilibria of polymer and copolymer solutions and a respected contributor to the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, has gathered up-to-the-minute data from more than 500 newly published references. Fully committed to ensuring the reliability of the data, the author included only results with published or personally communicated numerical values.

With volumetric, calormetric, and various phase equilibrium data on more than 450 copolymers and 130 solvents, this handbook furnishes:

  • 150 new vapor-liquid equilibrium datasets
  • 50 new tables containing classical Henry’s coefficients
  • 250 new liquid-liquid equilibrium datasets
  • 350 new high-pressure fluid phase equilibrium
  • 70 new PVT-properties datasets
  • 40 new enthalpic datasets
  • Expanded second osmotic virial coefficients data table

Carefully organized, clearly presented, and fully referenced, The Handbook of Phase Equilibria and Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions will prove a cardinal contribution to the open literature and invaluable to anyone working with copolymers.

Reviews

After thoroughly examining this handbook, I am grateful that I shall not have to search various literature sources again to find the data I need in the laboratory or in the classroom. Wohlfarth's CRC Handbook of Phase Equilibria and Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions is a welcome addition to the authors previous compilations and holds a wealth of information that researchers working with copolymer solutions simply must have available systematically categorized at their fingertips. … this handbook is an excellent companion to the Polymer Handbook and, as such, rightfully belongs on the shelf of every researcher who maintains an interest in copolymer solutions for academic or technological reasons.
