This ebook has its beginning in an offer made many years in the past that I may still collaborate with Dr H. J. Stern within the construction of a 3rd variation of his recognized text-book entitled Rubber: usual and artificial. The sugges tion was once that I should still give a contribution a chain of chapters on artificial rubbers. even if, within the occasion, it has no longer proved attainable to submit the complete booklet within the shape initially deliberate, it used to be obvious that, with a few restructuring, the cloth which I had accumulated will be invaluable as an self reliant precis of the chemistry and know-how of artificial rubbers. it truly is during this shape that the fabric is now provided. the first objective of this ebook is to supply a short updated survey of the central kinds of man made rubber which were and are presently to be had. periods of fabric are incorporated that are looked via a few as being thermoplastics instead of rubbers, particularly, plasticised polyvinyl chloride and the thermoplastic artificial rubbers. the subjects that are coated for every major kin of artificial rubbers are (i) the resources of the monomers, (ii) polymerisation approaches and the consequences of significant polymerisation variables upon the rubber produced, (iii) the kinds of rubber at present to be had commercially, (iv) fascinating facets of the compounding of the rubbers, with targeted connection with such concerns as vulcanisation, reinforcement, security opposed to degradation, and (where acceptable) plasticisation, and (v) a sign of applications.
