Elastomers and rubberlike materials form a critical component in diverse applications that range from tyres to biomimetics and are used in chemical, biomedical, mechanical and electrical engineering. This updated and expanded second edition provides an elementary introduction to the physical and molecular concepts governing elastic behaviour, with a particular focus on elastomers. With a list of experiments and demonstrations, problem sets and solutions, this is a self-contained introduction to the topic for graduate students, researchers and industrialists working in the applied fields of physics and chemistry, polymer science and engineering.

New expanded edition providing an introduction to the physical and molecular concepts governing elastic behaviour, particularly in elastomers. With a list of experiments/demonstrations, problem sets and solutions, this self-contained introduction is for graduate students, researchers and industrialists in the applied fields of physics and chemistry, polymer science and engineering.From the Publisher:
Provides a concise, elementary treatment of the most important aspects of rubberlike elasticity, including new theoretical insights and recent experimental results. Taking the viewpoint of the physical chemist or chemical physicist, the author focuses on equilibrium properties (rather than polymer viscoelasticity, for which there is already a huge body of literature). The first part of the book deals with fundamentals, assuming only the basic concepts of physical chemistry; the second addresses more advanced topics, some of which are still under intensive investigation. The more detailed material for both parts has been placed into appendixes.
