Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) has played a vital role in materials research, development, manufacturing and processing - especially of polymers - over the last 10 years. This book is the first to provide an in-depth assessment of the applications of DSC in polymer science, technology and analysis, examining the most significant studies that have taken place in this area. The authors show how DSC can be applied to various fields of polymer science where other methods have been unsuccessful. They discuss the ways in which DSC facilitates quantitative studies of the thermodynamic parameters and kinetics of melting, crystallization, liquid-crystallization, different phase and relaxational transition; structural relaxation, estimation of heat capacity, heat conductivity and degree of crystalinity; and also examines the influence of deformation and irradiation on the structure and internal energy of polymers, permits to study the kinetics of their synthesis, and the transformation and degradation of polymers. The book opens up new possibilities for the prediction of relaxation transition parameters as well as the properties and processes in polymers controlled by segmental dynamics.
