The Second Edition of Thermal Characterization of Polymeric Materials, edited by Edith A. Turi, continues the tradition of the widely acclaimed original work. It provides an in-depth overview of thermal analysis by focusing on instrumentation and a wide array of applications in research, development, production, quality control and technical service. Readers will greatly benefit from the well-coordinated and clearly written chapters, which are replete with practical examples. Each chapter is written by world-renowned authors and includes important but previously unpublished experimental data. Fully revised and updated, this text has grown from 960 to approximately 2200 pages, reflecting the explosive development of the field during the past 15 years. This comprehensive two-volume set is destined to become an invaluable reference source for chemists, engineers, physicists, and other professionals involved in research, development, production, applications, characterization, and evaluation of polymers.
Features: * Two-Volume Set * Revised and updated throughout * Includes two important new chapters on the characterization of composites and films * Combines basic principles of thermal analysis techniques with practical understanding of commercial instruments and applicability to particular needs * Helps reader to eliminate costly trial-and-error experiments by judicious use of the examples described * Provides extensive references to the primary literature * Features thermal curves, diagrams and other illustrations, allowing readers to evaluate their own data
