Chapter 3 Thermodynamic Properties

thermodynamic functions or properties may be expressed in terms of any two given independent properties v = f(T p) or v = v(T p) u = u(T p) or u = u(T v) s = s(T p) or s = s(T v) The functional relations for these properties must be developed from experimental data and are dependent on the particular chemical molecules making up the

1 Material Properties of Plastics

Material Properties of Plastics 1 1 Formation and Structure The basic structure of plastics (or polymers) is given by macromolecule chains formulated from monomer units by chemical reactions Typical reactions for chain assembling are polyaddition (continuous or step wise) and condensation polymer-ization (polycondensation) [1] (Figure 1 1)

DRYING

Drying has a number of close synonyms Dehydration is the process of depriving a material of its water or the loss of water as a constituent The term is often used in food-drying operations to describe processes which strive to expel moisture but retain other volatile constituents in the original material and which are responsible for valuable aromatic and flavoring properties
