About the Author

Dr. Lisa C. Klein is founder and first editor-in-chief of Springer's highly successful Sol Gel journal. Lisa also started the Sol Gel Book Series but due to other University activities and visiting position, had to reduce her involvement with the journal and Series. She is a leader in this field with good contacts. In 1998 Lisa received the Achievement Award of the Society of Women Engineers for "breakthrough contributions in sol-gel science and engineering, particularly sol-gel applications in electrolytes, electrochromics, membranes and nanocomposites".

Dr. Mario Aparicio completed his PhD in 1998 at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, Spain. In 1999, he was awarded a 2-year fellowship from Minsterio de Educacio y Cultura to study hybrid proton exchange membranes at Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ. Presently, he is a researcher in the Institute de Ceramic y Vidris, CSIC, Madrid, where he continues to develop PEM membranes and sol-gel corrosion coatings.

Dr. Andrei Jitianu completed his PhD in 2001 at the University of Bucharest, Roumania. He studied materials chemistry, mainly focusing on sol-gel processes. In 2007, he joined City University of New York. He has experience with sol-gel inorganic-organic hybrids for a variety of applications. In 2010 he received the Feliks Gross Endowment Award, as one of only two junior faculty selected for their research excellence from the Graduate Center of the entire City University of New York.
