By Jan W. Gooch (auth.), Jan W. Gooch (eds.)

This reference, in its moment version, comprises greater than 7,500 polymeric fabric phrases, together with the names of chemical substances, methods, formulae, and analytical tools which are used usually within the polymer and engineering fields. In view of the evolving partnership among actual and existence sciences, this name contains an appendix of biochemical and microbiological phrases (thus delivering formerly unpublished fabric, special from all competitors.) each one succinct access deals a generally obtainable definition in addition to cross-references to similar phrases. the place acceptable to reinforce readability extra, the volume's definitions can also supply equations, chemical constructions, and different figures. the recent interactive software program allows quick access to a wide database of chemical constructions (2D/3D-view), audio documents for pronunciation, polymer technology equations and plenty of more.
