The superior mechanical properties of materials consisting of chains of repeating chemical groups, polymers, has led to their increasing use since the beginning of this century. The enormous versatility in organic synthetic methods has been brought to bear on the synthesis of materials whose combined processibility, cost and durability have no rival. These features will always be the driving force behind the further development of polymers for increasingly specialized tasks. Thus the term `speciality polymer’ has entered the language to indicate some added function synthetically incorporated to augment the expected mechanical excellence of the material.
