The contributors to this volume appraise our knowledge of the molecular physics of polymer networks and pinpoint areas of research where significant advances can be made using new theories and techniques. They describe both theoretical approaches, based on new theoretical concepts and original network models, and recent experimental investigations using SANS, 2H NMR or QELS. These new techniques provide precise information about network behaviour at the molecular level. Reported results of the application of these and more traditional techniques include the microscopic conformation and properties of permanent networks or gels formed by specific interchain interactions, the behaviour of elastomer liquid crystals, and the static and dynamic properties of star-branched polymers.
