1 Introduction R.F.T. STEPTO 1.1 Networks, polymer networks and materials In
atomic or molecular terms, network structures are widespread. They are the basis
of all solid materials. It is a network structure which permeates the macroscopic ...
In contrast, polymer networks are molecular-based networks whose network
structures depend entirely on covalent bonding or on physical intermolecular
interactions between macromolecules. The former, covalent type of structure can
Flory-Stockmayer theory says nothing concerning the detailed topology of the
network, which grows and defines its structure through the random reaction of its
reactive groups with other groups on the gel and with groups on sol species.
