This book is one of the most complete regarding the applications of organic materials in electronics and optoelectronics. The second edition of this monumental book has more than 1,000 pages that span 33 chapters.
 
The book is clearly written and beautifully ilustrated. It can be divided into three main parts. The first ten chapters deal with the main physical properties of organic materials such as polymers, nanotubes and fullerenes, and organic semiconductors. Chapters 11 to 22 cover devices based on organic materials, such as transistors, LEDs, photovoltaic devices, nonlinear optical devices, and memories. The closing chapters focus on advanced organic materials and their applications, such as electrochromic materials, liquid crystals, low-dielectric-constant organic materials for optical actuation, and self-assembly organic materials.
 
The book is a must for anyone working in the area of electronics and optoelectronics based on organic materials.
