The Series in Metallurgy and Materials Science was initiated during the Diamond Jubilee of the Indian Institute of Metals (IIM). In the last decade, the progress in the study and development of metallurgy and materials science has been rapid and extensive, giving us a whole new array of materials, with a wide range of applications, and a variety of techniques for both processing and characterizing them. With the help of an expert editorial panel of international and national scientists, the series aims to make this information available to a wide spectrum of readers through textbooks, monographs on select topics, and proceedings of select international conferences organised by the IIM. This book is the eighth book in the series.
This book introduces the reader to the basic concepts, lines of development, main characteristics and applications of functional materials. Several examples of functional materials developed during the last two decades are used to illustrate their versatility and range of function. This book examines the preparation and characterization of some of these materials from the perspective of a synthetic chemist. Although research in this area is multidisciplinary, the chemistry of these materials is given special importance. Existing and emerging applications of functional materials in energy storage, polymer electronics, chemical sensors, nanobiotechnology and medicine are highlighted.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Thursday 21 November, 2013.
