Summary Annotation With the global renewal of interest in PVC, this book is well timed, considering that PVC stabilization is the most important aspect of its formulation and performance.<br /><br />Only four books have been published on PVC degradation and stabilization (the last one in the 1980s), and two of them are by the author of this book.<br /><br />Separate chapters review information on chemical structure, PVC manufacturing technology, morphology, degradation by thermal energy, and UV, gamma, and other forms of radiation, mechanodegradation, chemical degradation, analytic methods used in studying of degradative and stabilization processes, stabilization, and effect of PVC and its additives on health, safety and environment.<br /><br />This book contains analysis of all essential papers published until recently on the above subject. It either locates the answers to relevant questions and offers solutions or gives references in which such answers can be found.<br /><br />PVC Degradation and Stabilization is must have for chemists, engineers, scientists, university teachers and students, designers, material scientists, environmental chemists, and lawyers who work with polyvinyl chloride and its additives or have any interest in these products. This book is the one authoritative source on the subject.<br /><br />ÀThe first book on this subject since the 1980s. ÀShows new trends and directions in the manufacture and use of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). ÀHelps lead research and development of successful and responsible application of additives in PVC processing and applications
