Characterisation of Polymers by Thermal Analysis Publisher Description: Thermal Analysis TA has become an indispensable family of analytical techniques in the polymer research. These areas are still in their developmental stages, especially the third area. The increasing knowledge of the dependence of physical properties on chemical structure just accentuated more and more the need for accurate thermoanalytical measurements, and this knowledge is very important for the first stages of the development of new polymeric systems. Besides, the contribution of TA remains necessary for the technical and commercial development of such a new polymer system.

The use of the various TA techniques in these processes is described in this book in nine chapters, while chapter ten illustrates the information obtained about different polymers during special case studies. The basis of many DSC methods is the modulation of temperature along with varying other parameters.

The mode of modulation, a sinusoidal wave or a saw tooth curve, affords the thermal analyst an opportunity to study a physical or chemical change in greater detail.

Publisher Description: Electron Spin Resonance covers the obtaining, analysing and interpreting of cw X-band ESR spectra of molecules with unpaired electron s. The purpose of the book is to describe in mathematical terms the extraction of useful information from ESR spectra about the interaction of unpaired electrons with atoms in the molecules being studied.

    A reader familiar with quantum mechanics should gain a thorough understanding of the origins of the phenomena which make ESR spectra possible. The information that can be obtained from the spectra are explained in detail and in a logical step-by-step fashion. Examples of spectra of organic, inorganic and organometallic molecules, both in solution and in frozen solution are shown, analysed and interpreted and the mathematical basis of this interpretation clearly presented. The examples start with straightforward cases and proceed to more complicated ones.

    The ESR of biradicals, triplet states and other systems with more than one unpaired electron is also addressed. Particular attention is paid to the analysis and interpretation of spectra obtained from frozen solutions of paramagnetic organometallic compounds in which the g-matrix and the molecular axes are non-coincident. This book lays a firm groundwork for understanding more sophisticated experiments, which the availability of newer commercial instruments have made possible.
