Description

The Polymeric Materials Encyclopedia presents state-of-the-art research and development on the synthesis, properties, and applications of polymeric materials. This groundbreaking work includes the largest number of contributors in the world for a reference publication in polymer science, and examines many fields not covered in any other reference. With multiple articles on many subjects, the encyclopedia offers you a broad-based perspective on a multitude of topics, as well as detailed research information, figures, tables, illustrations, and references. Updates published as new research unfolds will continue to provide you with the latest advances in polymer science, and will keep the encyclopedia at the forefront of the field well into the future.

From novices to experienced researchers in the field, anyone and everyone working in polymer science today needs this complete assessment of the state of the art.

The entire 12-volume set will be available in your choice of printed or CD-ROM format.

Reviews

"The preparation of encyclopedia on polymer material is the most complex task which has been accomplished with near perfection by Professor Salamone as an Editor-in-chief in close cooperation from CRC Press…This encyclopedia is strongly recommended for all the libraries of research institutes on polymer industries."

--D.C. Trivedi, CECRI, Karaikudi

"…this compendium clearly promises to be a significant contribution to the field of polymer science…comprehensive from the standpoints of both the selection of contributors, worldwide, and the subjects covered…the greatest anticipation is its availability on CD-ROM…enormously simplify obtaining cross referenced searches on polymer structures, systheses and uses."

--Stephen L Goldstein, PhD, Olin Research Center
