Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This first volume of a series relating in review form the Japanese contributions to polymer science deals with advances in both the synthesis and characterization of polymers. Radical polymerizations of simple monomers are discussed as well as metal ion effects and cyclopolymerizations. Statistical models, viscoelastic properties analysis, rheological anoptical techniques are presented as significant sources of information in the definition of properties and structures of polymers. The book contains 7 contributions written by different authors. Bibliography data are included with individual papers. Following is a list of titles and authors: Structure and Reactivity of Vinyl Monomers in Radical Polymerization. By Takayuki Otsu. Effects of Metal Salts on Radical Polymerization. By Shigeo Tazuke. Cyclopolymerization of Divinyl and Dialdehyde Monomers. By Chuji Aso, Toyoki Kunitake and Sanae Tagami. Conformational Statistics of Polymeric Chains. Stress-Optical and -Dichroic Coefficients of Polymeric Networks. By Kazuo Nagai. Viscoelastic Properties of Concentrated Polymer Solutions. By Kunihiro Osaki and Yoshiyuki Einaga.
