"A strength of the book is that the contributing authors are leading researchers on the topics presented and have backgrounds in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, materials science and engineering or biomedical engineering. This enables the work to have wide applicability to the activities of a multidisciplinary audience of scientists and engineers. Much of the text reads like a compilation of excellent review articles, however, relevant basic science concepts that are fundamental to current and future developments are also provided. ... The book is exciting and full of new ideas and directions for the thirty year horizon and beyond. It is a reference that many willl want to read from cover to cover."
