This new edition includes better values of properties already reported, properties not reported in time for the earlier edition, and entirely new properties becoming important for modern polymer applications. It also contains 217 total polymers, 15 of which are all-new, particularly in high-technology areas such as eletrical conductivity, non-linear optical properties, microlithography, nanophotonics, and electroluminescences. Examples of specific polymers include silsesquoxane ladder polymers, 'foldamer' self-assembling polymers, and block copolymers that phase separate into 'mushrooms', ellipsoids, and sheets with on surface radically different in properties from the more

Review quote

"This handbook presents in a standardized, readily accessible tabular format concise information on the syntheses, structures, properties, and applications of the most important polumeric materials currently in industrial use or under study for potential new industrial or academic applications. This volume should interest researchers and technologists who require a comprehensive reference source on polumers and their properties."--Chemical Education Todayshow more

About James E. Mark

James E. Mark is Distinguished Research Professor at the University of Cincinnati. He has extensive research and consulting experience in industry and has served as a Visiting Professor at several institutions. Dr. Mark's research interests pertain to the physical chemistry of polymers, including the elasticity of polymer networks, hybrid organic-inorganic composites, liquid-crystalline polymers, and a variety of computer simulations. Dr. Mark is an extensive lecturer in polymer chemistry, is an organizer and participant in a number of short courses, and has published approximately 675 research papers and coauthored or co-edited twenty-four books. He is the founding editor of the journal Computational and Theoretical Polymer Science, which was started in 1990, is an editor for the journal Polymer, and serves on a number of journal Editorial Boards.He is a Fellow of the New York Academy of Sciences, the American Physical Society, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
