  • Bridges more engineering-oriented polymer characterization techniques with classic physical and chemical techniques
  • Offers supplementary text potential for senior undergraduate and graduate courses on polymer characterization and parts of polymer science or engineering courses
  • Contains case studies and exercises to guide readers toward real-world application of the methods and analysis of results
  • Shares the author’s expertise in using the methods to characterize physical and chemical changes in polymers, such as the chain structure, aggregation status, and morphology of polymer materials during aging
  • Draws on the author’s experience teaching polymer analysis at both undergraduate and graduate levels


Analytical Methods for Polymer Characterization presents a collection of methods for polymer analysis. Topics include chromatographic methods (gas chromatography, inverse gas chromatography, and pyrolysis gas chromatography), mass spectrometry, spectroscopic methods (ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance), thermal analysis (differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetry), microscopy methods (scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy), and x-ray diffraction. The author also discusses mechanical and dynamic mechanical properties.
