Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...this book is for those interested in chemistry, biosynthesis, materials, and especially biopolymers...this volume gets a thumbs up." (Journal of Metals Online, September 6, 2005)

"...will be interest to many organometallic chemists seeking new applications for their work as well as to polymer and materials scientists seeking substances with useful properties." (Polymer News, September 2005)

"...a useful addition to the collections of those interested in more highly condensed silicon-based materials." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, November 9, 2005)
