Throughout human history, the fields of chemistry and materials science have been at the frontier of science and technology, as world needs evolve and these disciplines have allowed us to adapt ideas into reality.
Advancements in 3-D printing and biomaterials have transformed medical care needs. Nanomaterials and electrochemistry have advanced solar and fuel-cell technologies and answered our urgent need for more sustainable and efficient energy production and storage. Bio-inspired membranes and nanostructures offer hope in providing clean water to the growing world population and water issue. The Chemistry and Materials Science eBook Collection serves as a nod to these fields and more, that so dramatically shape our society and enables researchers working in all areas of science to make the jump from theory to reality.
