The book describes organic and physical chemistry of polymers. This includes the physical properties of polymers, their syntheses, and subsequent use as plastics, elastomers, reagents, and functional materials. The syntheses are characterized according to the chemical mechanism of their reactions, their kinetics, and their scope and utility. Whenever possible, descriptions of industrial- scale preparations are included. Emphasis is placed on reaction parameters both in the preparation of the polymeric materials and in their utilization as reagents. Also, when possible, industrial or trade names of the polymeric materials are included to familiarize the students. This book also describes chemical modiﬁcations of polymers. A separate chapter is dedicated to utilization of polymers as reagents, supports for catalyst or for drug release, as electricity conductors, and in photonic materials.

The National Academic Digital Library of Ethiopia (NADLE) is a project under Ministry of Science and Higher Education, Ethiopia. The objective is to collect and collate metadata and provide full text index from several national and international digital libraries, as well as other relevant sources. It is a academic digital repository containing textbooks, articles, audio books, lectures, simulations, fiction and all other kinds of learning media. The NADLE provides free of cost access to many academic books in English and the Other languages.
