Hybrid materials consist of both organic and inorganic components. They may offer a desired functionality or superior characteristics compared to their building blocks or other, simpler materials if the components are well chosen. Such materials are currently having a great impact on numerous future developments, including nanotechnology.

Filling the gap for a compact text that presents the topic from a general point of view while adopting a didactic approach, this book is an overview of the different types of materials, clearly structured into synthesis, characterization and applications. As such, it represents a perfect introduction for the scientist starting in the field, while also being an invaluable source of high quality information for the expert.

For materials scientists, as well as inorganic, solid state, organic and polymer chemists.

Guido Kickelbick is professor at the Institute of Materials Chemistry of the Vienna University of Technology, Austria. Born in Hamm, he studied chemistry at the University of Würzburg, Germany, gaining his PhD in 1997 under Ulrich Schubert on sol–gel derived surface–modified metal oxo clusters. He was subsequently READ MORE >

"...Overall this is a useful book, ideal as a starting point in this thriving field; it can adequately supplement more advanced books in this subject. The level is adequate to establish a lecture–based course in hybrid materials. In spite of the variety of styles expected from a multi–author volume, the high quality, didactic, and well–referenced sections will undoubtedly guide the interested reader to the primary sources."
