This book describes the various methods currently used to deposit highly ordered organic films, and the physical techniques employed in characterizing their properties. Beginning with a discussion of the necessary basic physics and chemistry, the book proceeds to a description of the main topics of current research in this field. The author discusses in detail the Langmuir-Blodgett technique, self-assembly, and methods of film deposition exploiting the ordered structure of mesophases. Finally, he treats liquid crystals, films at the air/water interface and biomembranes.

Industry Reviews

'This is a well prepared text, with many excellent and informative diagrams, extensive references and a comprehensive index ... Tredgold writes with clarity and authority, and equally importantly, with enthusiasm. This is an ideal book for research students entering the field, but final year project students and more established researchers will also find much of interest.' M. R. Willis, Chemistry in Britain 'This is a good book, which should find wide readership across this interdisciplinary area of science ... It will be particularly welcomed by graduate students and research workers with an interest in the chemistry and physics of organic thin films.' Advanced Materials
