"The author has achieved the aim of offering the newcomers in polymer science a concise but complete and clear introductory instrument." (Polymer News)

"an excellent introduction" (Chemistry & Industry, 20 May 2002)
  • First low-level, distance-learning book to be written in this area.
  • Distance-learning structure with clear summaries of each analytical technique and extensive use of self-assessment questions and problems to aid student understanding.
  • Assumes no previous knowledge of polymers.
  • Book focuses on the properties of polymers, not spectroscopic techniques - therefore, more accessible.
  • Provides comprehensive coverage of a range of techniques used to study polymeric materials.
