Back Cover Copy
The papers cover a broad range of analytical and fractionation techniques for polyolefins, including: Cross-fractionation by GPC-TREF-GPC, HPLC-FTIR Molecular fractionation according to long chain branching structure Crystallization elution fractionation Applications of polyolefin fractionation techniques to:analysis of supported catalysts, olefin polymerization kinetics, polyolefin degradation Thermal analysis techniques for polyolefins Use of solvents to enhance NMR resolution
Main Description
An excellent overview of recent advances in polyolefin characterization, providing many facts hitherto unavailable. The top quality contributions span such fields as separation and fractionation, high throughput, thermal and crystallinity analysis, spectroscopy and rheology.
Main Description
The First International Conference on Polyolefin Characterization (ICPC) held in Houston, Texas, in October 2006, was organized to fill the important industrial and academic need for a discussion forum on the characterization and fractionation techniques of polyolefins. These proceedings represent an excellent and up-to-date overview of recent advances in this important area, providing much information and facts that are not available elsewhere. The result is a collection of top quality contributions by experienced editors and international authors on such fields as separation and fractionation, high throughput processes, thermal and crystallinity analysis, spectroscopy and rheology. Equally of high interest for the polymer industry.
