In recent years, multicomponent polymers have generated much interest due to their excellent properties, unique morphology and high-end applications. Book focusses on thermal, thermo-mechanical and dielectric analysis of polymers and multicomponent polymeric systems like blends, interpenetrating polymeric networks (IPNs), gels, polymer composites, nanocomposites. Through these analyses, it provides an insight into the stability of polymer systems as a function of time, processing and usage. Aimed at polymer chemists, physicists and engineers, it also covers ASTM /ISO and other standards of various measurement techniques for systematic analysis in materials science.
