About the Authors
  • This book describes the chemical and physical structure of molecular crystals, their optical and electronic properties, and the reactions between neighboring molecules in crystals. In the second edition, the author has taken into account research that has undergone extremely rapid development since the first edition was published in 1987. For instance, he gives extensive coverage to the applications of molecular materials in high-technology devices (e.g. optical communications, laser printers, photocopiers, liquid crystal displays, solar cells, and more). There is also an entirely new chapter on the recently discovered Buckminsterfullerene carbon molecule (C60) and organic non-linear optic materials.

    • Two additional chapters, one of which is on Buckyballs
    • Broad and concise coverage, with numerous references for more detailed study

    Reviews & endorsements

    From reviews of the First Edition...

    "Recommended as excellent reading for those interested in the properies of organic solids." M. P. Hanson, Choice

    "This book is an excellent introduction to the field of physics and chemistry of molecular crystals and methods of research....this book may play an important role in the formation of molecular electronics, being developed by the efforts of physicists and chemists." Vladmir R. Belosludov, Materials Research Bulletin
