Each volume in this handbook brings together reliable, easy-to-use entries, references, tables, examples, and appendices on experimental data from hundreds of primary journal articles, dissertations, and other published papers. They all present critical data for understanding the physical behavior of polymer solutions, intermolecular interactions, and the molecular nature of mixtures - essential information for developing theoretical thermodynamic models.

The Latest Volume in this Handbook… An excellent companion to the author's previous publications of thermodynamic data, The CRC Handbook of Thermodynamic Data of Polymer Solutions at Elevated Pressures, provides the only complete collection of high-pressure thermodynamic data pertaining to polymer solutions at elevated pressures to date. It contains nearly 1600 data sets including VLE/gas solubility isotherms, LLE and HPPE for polymer systems in supercritical fluids, as well as volumetric, enthalpic, and virial coefficient data sets, all at elevated pressures.
