Each chapter presents the latest methods for a specific class of polymers with a particular emphasis on the design aspects for opto–electronic applications. In this concise and practically oriented manner, readers are introduced to the strategies of influencing and controlling the polymer properties with respect to their use in the desired device.
This style of presentation quickly helps researchers in their daily lab work and prevents them from reinventing the wheel over and over again.

Jean–François Morin is Assistant Professor at Université Laval in the Department of Chemistry. After his PhD in Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Mario Leclerc, he went to the Tour group at Rice University in Houston, USA, as a post–doctoral research fellow and worked on the development of self–propelled nanomachines on surfaces. In 2006 he moved back to Laval where his current research activities include the synthesis and characterization of organic nanotubes, nanoscale machinery, n–type organic materials and rotaxane–based nanomaterials for surface modification.
