Polymer Networks: Principles of Their Formation, Structure and Properties
Springer, 1998 - Science - 343 pages
Written by an international team of authors with a strong emphasis on the underlying chemistry, this book forms a timely, concise, and accessible evaluation of the fundamentals of polymer network formation, structure, and properties, and how these three aspects are interrelated.

In the more highly crosslinked material, the concentration of junction points is
high, hence, the lengths of the subchains between them are shorter and there are
more subchains per unit volume. In the elastomeric state, because a macroscopic

Note that the concentration of nucleated species is depleted around the nucleus
and the molecules or chain segments that feed the new phase follow the ordinary
transport phenomena with a positive diffusion coefficient (downhill diffusion).
