This volume explores the significant advances in polymer characterization methodology. Recognized experts in the field present descriptions of unique and new characterization methods. The 26 chapters of the volume are divided into four sections covering polymer fractionation and particle sizedistribution, dynamic mechanical analysis and rheology, spectroscopy, and morphology. Many chapters report on the combined use of several characterization methods in order to elucidate the relationship between polymer structure-morphology and polymer performance.

Author Notes

Theodore Provder is Director, Coatings Research Institute, Eastern Michigan University.
