Giant molecules : essential materials for everyday living and problem solving by Raymond B Seymour( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book begins with essential, conceptual basics, assuming no prior scientific knowledge whatsoever, then moves swiftly to apply these fundamentals to real-world materials. The majority of the text addresses material concepts and their various applications. A pictorial approach is employed throughout. The author uses sweeping, striking drawings, pictures, and figures to explain why particular giant molecules behave the way they do, and why some, for example, are suitable to the human genome while others are used to construct bulletproof vests. Each chapter contains a glossary, bibliography, and questions and answers for the reader's reference."--Jacket

According to Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe's (1740-1832) Mineralogy and Geology, "The history of science is science." A sesquicentennial later, one may state that the history of high performance polymers is the science of these important engineering polymers. Many of the inventors of these superior materials of construction have stood on the thresholds of the new and have recounted their experiences (trials, tribulations and satisfactions) in the symposium and in their chapters in this book. Those who have not accepted the historical approach in the past, should now recognize the value of the historical viewpoint for studying new developments, such as general purpose polymers and, to a greater degree, the high performance polymers. To put polymer science into its proper perspective, its worth recalling that historically, the ages of civilization have been named according to the materials that dominated that period. First there was the Stone Age eventually followed by the Tin, Bronze, Iron and Steel Ages. Today many historians consider us living in the Age of Synthetics: Polymers, Fibers, Plastics, Elastomers, Films, Coatings, Adhesives, etc. It is also interesting to note that in the early 1980's, Lord Todd, then President of the Royal Society of Chemistry was asked what has been chemistry's biggest contribution to society. He felt that despite all the marvelous medical advances, chemistry's biggest contribution was the development of polymeri zation. Man's knowledge of polymer science is so new that Professor Herman F
