This book offers concise information on the properties of polymeric materials, particularly those most relevant to physical chemistry and chemical physics. Extensive updates and revisions to each chapter include eleven new chapters on novel polymeric structures, reinforcing phases in polymers, and experiments on single polymer chains. The study of complex materials is highly interdisciplinary, and new findings are scattered among a large selection of scientific and engineering journals. This book brings together data from experts in the different disciplines contributing to the rapidly growing area of polymers and complex materials.James E. Mark ... However, when workers at the Toyota Central Research Laboratories reported a Nylon 6/clay nanocomposite that was utilized in a timing belt cover on the ... The maintenance of the impact strength in these composites with substantial increases in strength and stiffness are surprising. ... This spacing is called the gallery spacing and is determined from wide angle x-ray diffraction ( WAXS).
