Book Description

The Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions is 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 300 literature sources. Fully committed to ensuring the reliability of the data, the author included results in the handbook only if numerical values were published or if authors provided their numerical results by personal communication.

With volumetric, calormetric, and various phase equilibrium data on more than 165 copolymers and 165 solvents, this handbook furnishes:

  • 250 vapor-pressure isotherms
  • 75 tables of Henry’s constants
  • 50 LLE data sets
  • 175 HPPE data sets
  • 70 PVT data tables

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

Reviews

“… collects the data of approximately 300 bibliographic  references, that represent a 250 isotherms of  vapor’s pressure, 75 tables of constants of Henry, 50 sequences of equilibrium liquid-liquid, 175 of equilibrium of high pressure phase, and 70 tables PVT corresponding to a more of 165 copolymers and 165 dissolvents. With all this information, it is undoubtedly that his Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Copolymer Solutions will be useful to researchers, as well as professionals in the area of the Science of Polymers, Chemist-Physic, Chemist Engineering, Science of Materials, and also for those that are dedicated to theoretical calculus, or the development of computer packages for modeling. “
—E.P.T., in Revista de Plásticos Modernos, Vol. 92, No. 601, July 2006
”The author…is known for his experience and his own experimental investigations on polymer and copolymer solutions for more than 20 years…I am sure that readers interested in the field of thermodynamic properties of polymer solutions will benefit from this handbook and will identify the work that has to be done in the future.”
