The combination of new laser and microscopical techniques
has stimulated major advances in space-resolved chemistry in the solid
phase. Structures, properties, reactions and functionalities can all
be studied as a function of size, between the molecular dimension and
Avogadro's volume. As a result mesoscopic chemistry has become one of
the most exciting areas of scientific research. Organic Mesoscopic Chemistry
focuses on organic molecular systems and outlines the most dynamic areas
of research. The book demonstrates clearly that in the 21st Century
mesoscopic chemistry will not only be central to the chemical sciences
but will be at the hub of a wide area of interdisciplinary research.
