The short explains purely the necessities of polymer chemistry and the way polymers got here to be came upon via pioneers during this box. It relates the various makes use of of polymers, together with these no longer largely acknowledged by way of the lay individual. The chemistry of polymerisation and the effect of chemical constitution and ingredients on houses are defined. moral concerns are thought of, specifically within the context of massive tonnages of plastics. ultimately brief paragraphs on greater than 30 universal polymers are indexed chronologically with chemical buildings, houses and purposes. it is going to entice people with connections to or in the plastics, rubber and cloth industries, technology scholars, individuals of different technology disciplines utilizing polymers, in addition to humans simply curious to grasp approximately daily plastics.
