"Compiles nearly 400 fully assigned NMR spectra of approximately 300 polymers and polymer additives, representing all major clases of materials: polyolefins, styrenics, acrylates, methacrylates, vinyl polymers, elastomers, polyethers, polyesters, polymides, silicones, cellulosics, polyurethanes, plasticizers, and antioxidants."

Aliphatic backbones - aliphatic pendant groups; aliphatic backbones - aromatic pendant groups; aliphatic backbones - carbolic acid, ester and amide pendant groups; aliphatic backbones - miscellaneous pendant groups; unsaturated backbones; ester backbones; ester and amide backbones; miscellaneous backbones; polymer additives. Appendices: major end-use applications for some commercially significant polymers; graphic summary of C chemical shifts for common polymers; some suppliers of ploymers and polymer additives.
". . .well written and well organized....highly recommend[ed] to all synthetic and analytical chemists who work with polymers. "
". . .A major task in polymer NMR studies is to interpret the NMR spectra. . ..Over the years, only a few attempts have been made. . ..the latest effort, by Brandolini and Hills, is the most up-to-date and the bestin this genre."
