Part of the Springer Series on Fluorescence book series (SS FLUOR, volume 16)

About this book


This volume describes the application of fluorescence spectroscopy in polymer research. The first chapters outline the basic principles of the conformational and dynamic behavior of polymers and review the problems of polymer self-assembly. Subsequent chaptersintroduce the theoretical principles of advanced fluorescence methods and typical examples of their application in polymer science. The book closes withseveral reviews of various fluorescence applications for studying specific aspects of polymer-solution behavior. It is a useful resource for polymer scientists and experts in fluorescence spectroscopy alike, facilitating their communication and cooperation.
