"The main research and application areas in opto-organic materials are well presented in this book."
—Jinhui Song, University of Alabama, USA

"… a very comprehensive and informative handbook. This new edition covers a wide range of topics that describes basic principles of operation, fabrication, properties and performance of electronic devices. There are many new and important chapters such as chapters 20, 21, 30-33 and others that reflect research directions in the area of organic electronics. In my opinion, this book will be a good resource for researchers in the field of electronic devices based on organic molecules, faculty members who teach related courses and also students who are making their first steps in this exiting field."
—Elizabeth Amir, Shenkar College, Ramat Gan, Israel

"…an excellent resource for both experts and beginners who want to develop and expand their background in this field."
—Hany Aziz, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

"This book is an excellent resource for graduate students… [it] contains an excellent balance of chemistry, device physics, and applications."
— Mihaela C. Stefan, University of Texas at Dallas, USA

"This is a resource book that spans in coverage breadth and extends in topic depth. It speaks fluently to all levels of learners with limited degree of translation, thereby ensuring independent study while traversing in the current topics that drive research."
— Daniel Wamwangi, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa

"The book offers a complete and accurate overview of organic electronics, starting from the fundamental theory to the most common and well-established applications. The book can be extremely useful for a student because it contains not only the most common topics selected in a typical course, but also an accurate overview of "exotic" but widely known fields of organic electronics, such as spintronic and computational approach,
