Polydienes

  • K. J. Saunders

Abstract

Polydienes constitute an extremely important group of polymers. This group comprises natural rubber (and related natural materials) and its derivatives together with the products of polymerization and copolymerization of conjugated dienes. These various materials make up the contents of this chapter. The importance of the polydienes lies in the fact that they encompass the bulk of the commercial elastomers currently in use.
