Functional materials have assumed a very prominent position in several high-tech areas. Such materials are not being classified on the basis of their origin, nature of bonding or processing techniques but are classified on the basis of the functions they can perform. This is a significant departure from the earlier schemes in which materials were described as metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers, glass materials etc. Several new processing techniques have also evolved in the recent past. Because of the diversity of materials and their functions it has become extremely difficult to obtain information from single source.Functional Materials: Preparation, Processing and Applicationsprovides a comprehensive review of the latest developments.

  • Serves as a ready reference for Chemistry, Physics and Materials Science researchers by covering a wide range of functional materials in one book
  • Aids in the design of new materials by emphasizing structure or microstructure property correlation
  • Covers the processing of functional materials in detail, which helps in conceptualizing the applications of them
