Summary
"Polymers exhibit a range of physical characteristics, from rubber-like elasticity to the glassy state. These particular properties are controlled at the molecular level by the mobility of the structural constituents. Remarkable changes in mobility can be witnessed with temperature, over narrow, well-defined regions, termed relaxation processes. This is an important, unique phenomenon controlling polymer transition behavior and is described here at an introductory level. The important types of relaxation processes from amorphous to crystalline polymers and polymeric miscible blends are covered, in conjunction with the broad spectrum of experimental methods used to study them. In-depth discussions of molecular level interpretation, including recent advances. In atomistic level computer simulations and applications to molecular mechanism elucidation, are provided. The result is a self-contained, up-to-date approach to polymeric interpretation, suitable for researchers and graduate students in materials, science, physics, and chemistry, interested in the relaxation processes of polymeric systems."--Jacket
