Chemistry of Advanced Materials
for the 21st Century Monograph".

Blackwell Science,1993 [ISBN 0632033851]
One of the major new directions in chemical
sciences is related to advance materials. An increasingly important
role is played by the chemist in the development of advanced materials
such as ceramics, metals, organics, inorganics, polymers and a variety
of other substances in various states of aggregation and with diverse
perspectives and applications. Tailor-making materials of the desired
structure and properties is an important facet of the chemistry of advanced
materials and whilst it is not possible, in a
manageable volume, to cover all classes of materials or all the aspects
of any given family of materials, the editor has chosen a selection
of topics which provide the flavour of this important area of chemistry
with all its facets. The articles included in this new monograph provide
an up-to-date survey of the important aspects of modern materials. Chemistry
of Advanced Materials firmly establishes this area of chemistry as a
part of mainstream chemistry and provides students, teachers and practitioners
with a valuable reference resource.
