From the PublisherMaterials Today, May 2004
"In general the production quality of the publication is of the high level that one naturally associates with the publisher. The writing is clear and concise, and the figures are mostly attractive and informative. ... In essence this is a timely work, collecting together the latest research in all the facets of the subject matter. This makes the book a wise acquisition even for those well up-to-date in their own field - there will certainly be a lot of new information and concepts here for everyone. It is both a good read and a helpful reference work."
Dr. Andrew N. Shipway, Mempile Israel Ltd., Kiryat Hatikshoret, Neve Ilan, CHEMPHYSCHEM, 11/2004
"A strength of the book is that the contributing authors are leading researchers on the topics presented and have backgrounds in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, materials science and engineering or biomedical engineering. This enables the work to have wide applicability to the activities of a multidisciplinary audience of scientists and engineers. Much of the text reads like a compilation of excellent review articles, however, relevant basic science concepts that are fundamental to current and future developments are also provided. ... The book is exciting and full of new ideas and directions for the thirty year horizon and beyond. It is a reference that many willl want to read from cover to cover."
