The aim of Introduction to Polymer Analysis aims to familiarize the reader with all aspects of plastic analysis. The book covers the analysis of the main types of plastics now in use commercially.

The book provides an up-to-date and thorough exposition of the present state of the art of polymer analysis and, as such, will be of great interest to all those engaged in this subject in industry, university research establishment and general education. It is also intended for undergraduate and graduate chemistry students and those taking courses in plastics technology, engineering chemistry, materials science and industrial chemistry.

It will be a useful reference work for manufacturers and users of plastics, the food and beverage packing industry, the engineering plastics industry, plastic components manufacturers, and those concerned with pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
