The instruction manual of Liquid Crystals is a special compendium of data on all facets of liquid crystals. In over 2000 pages the guide presents particular info at the easy rules of either low- and high-molecular weight fabrics, in addition to the synthesis, characterization, amendment, and purposes (such as in laptop monitors or as structural fabrics) of all kinds of liquid crystals.
The 5 editors of the instruction manual are the world over popular specialists from either and academia and feature drawn jointly over 70 prime figures within the box as authors.
The 4 volumes of the guide are designed either for use jointly or as stand-alone reference assets. a few clients would require the full set, others might be most sensible served with one or of the volumes.
quantity 1 bargains with the elemental actual and chemical ideas of liquid crystals, together with structure-property relationships, nomenclature, part habit, characterization tools, and basic synthesis and alertness innovations. As such this quantity presents a very good advent to the sphere and a strong studying and educating instrument for graduate scholars and above.
Volumes 2A and 2B pay attention to low-molecular weight fabrics, for instance these normally utilized in reveal know-how. a top quality survey of the literature is equipped in addition to complete information of molecular layout techniques, section characterization and keep an eye on, and functions improvement. those volumes are for this reason via some distance the main unique reference assets on those industrially vitally important fabrics, very best for execs within the field.
quantity three concentrates on high-molecular weight, or polymeric, liquid crystals, a few of that are present in structural functions and others happen as normal items of residing structures. a pretty good literature survey is complemented by means of complete aspect of the synthesis, processing, research, and functions of all very important fabrics periods. This quantity is the main finished reference resource on those fabrics, and is hence ultimate for execs within the box.
