This compact desk reference includes all of the subjects contained in the 17 alphabetical volumes and the Supplement and Index volumes of the Encyclopedia of Polymer Science and Engineering. The articles have been condensed by professional science writers, reviewed for accuracy by the original authors or their colleagues, and updated where necessary. Like the ten-million word edition, this one-million word edition provides both SI and common units, carefully selected key references for each article, and hundreds of tables, charts, figures, and graphs. This distillation, skillfully prepared to retain the factual material of the original, is a complete and self-contained encyclopedia. It is designed to serve as a ready-reference guide for anyone seeking answers to questions on any aspect of polymer science and engineering.
