Handbook of Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Materials and Nanocomposites
Handbook of Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Materials and Nanocomposites is a major reference work that provides coverage on various emerging aspects of organic-inorganic hybrid materials and nanocomposites. These two-volume cover topics on molecular building blocks for preparing hybrid materials and nanocomposites, different synthetic routes allowing multifunctionality with a wide range of composition, sol-gel chemistry, processing and fabrication into ultrathin films, fibers, xerogels, spectroscopic characterization, mechanical, thermal, electronic, optical, catalytic and biological properties, polymer/metal interfaces, and their potential commercial applications. The handbook contains about 20 state-of-the-art chapters written by over 40 international experts from 11 countries. The handbook has been divided into two thematic volumes; Volume 1. Hybrid Materials
Volume 2. Nanocomposites
