Chapter

Summary

In this chapter we direct attention to the principal features governing the electrical behaviour of macromolecules both in solution and in the solid phase. Solution studies are analysed in terms of the contributions made by different types of chain dipoles to the static permittivity and to variable frequency experiments; this section is extended to cover measurements made at higher electric field strengths and the more novel work using mechanical shear fields. Next, the characteristic properties of amorphous materials in the solid state are discussed in terms of α and β processes and the modifications that occur when crystallinity is introduced. Finally, brief sections are devoted to Maxwell-Wagner-Sillars polarisation, thermally stimulated depolarisation and piezoelectric effects.
