The Interface between the Chemistry of Aqueous Polymer Solutions and their Application Technology

  • P. Molyneux


The Residential School on which this book is based had three general aims. These were, firstly, to summarize and systematize what is known about the properties and behaviour of water-soluble polymers; secondly, to review the present state of the scientific basis of this knowledge, and to place it into a general theoretical framework; and, thirdly, to bridge the gaps which currently divide these scientific principles from the application technology of these materials.
