Books and Journals
Macromolecular Reaction Engineering is one of the rare journals dedicated to engineering issues in the field of polymer science.
Click on the link for access to a free copy of the first chapter of Polyolefin Reaction Engineering. This book takes a look at how polyolefins are made, how to model and measure reaction kinetics, reactors, evaluate polymer properties…. It’s aimed at polymer chemists, plastics technologists, process engineers,the plastics industry, chemical engineers, and materials scientists (OK, yes, we wrote it, but it’s still pretty good).
