About the Authors
  • Presenting a completely new approach to examining how polymers move in non-dilute solution, this book focuses on experimental facts, not theoretical speculations, and concentrates on polymer solutions, not dilute solutions or polymer melts. From centrifugation and solvent dynamics to viscosity and diffusion, experimental measurements and their quantitative representations are the core of the discussion. The book reveals several experiments never before recognized as revealing polymer solution properties. A novel approach to relaxation phenomena accurately describes viscoelasticity and dielectric relaxation and how they depend on polymer size and concentration. Ideal for graduate students and researchers interested in the properties of polymer solutions, the book covers real measurements on practical systems, including the very latest results. Every significant experimental method is presented in considerable detail, giving unprecedented coverage of polymers in solution.

    • Covers a wide range of experimental techniques, including some not usually associated with polymer dynamics
    • Focuses on experiment and phenomenology, and includes new material not currently found in comparable books
    • Features experimental methods of viscosity, viscoelasticity and self diffusion, as well as new methods such as light scattering spectroscopy and shear banding
