Subsequent chapters introduce the theoretical
principles of advanced fluorescence methods and typical examples of their
application in polymer science. The book closes with several reviews of various
fluorescence applications for studying specific aspects of polymer-solution behavior.
It is a useful resource for polymer
scientists and experts in fluorescence spectroscopy alike, facilitating their
communication and cooperation.This volume describes the application of fluorescence
spectroscopy in polymer research. The first chapters outline the basic
principles of the conformational and dynamic behavior of polymers and review
the problems of polymer self-assembly.
