Chemistry: Concepts and Problems: A Self-Teaching Guide by Clifford C. Houk, Richard Post

By Clifford C. Houk, Richard Post


The quickly, effortless approach to grasp the basics of chemistry

Have you ever puzzled in regards to the alterations among beverages, gases, and solids? Or what really occurs while anything burns? What precisely is an answer? An acid? A base? this can be chemistry--the composition and constitution of drugs composing all subject, and the way they are often reworked. no matter if you're learning chemistry for the 1st time by yourself, are looking to refresh your reminiscence for a try out, or want a little aid for a direction, this concise, interactive advisor can provide a clean method of this attention-grabbing topic. This absolutely up to date variation of Chemistry: recommendations and difficulties:
* Has been verified, rewritten, and retested to make sure that you could train your self all approximately chemistry
* calls for no necessities
* enables you to paintings at your personal velocity with a worthwhile question-and-answer layout
* Lists goals for every chapter--you can pass forward or locate additional aid if you want it
* Reinforces what you examine with bankruptcy self-tests

105] when they studied by DSC the crystallization kinetics of 80/20 PCL-b-PEO diblock copolymers. In their case, the PCL block crystallized first from a homogeneous melt and the Avrami parameters K and n were found to be similar to the kinetics parameters of the isothermal crystallization of a corresponding PCL homopolymer. Significant crystallization retardation was found for the PEO block that crystallized second. The retardation was attributed to the “mutual influence between the PEO constituent and the PCL crystal phase which fixes (hardened) the total copolymer structure” [105].

All experiments were performed after the PPDX block had been previously crystallized until saturation. Solid lines are fits to the Lauritzen and Hoffman theory. (From [103].
