This work examines all aspects of organic conductors, detailing recent theoretical concepts and current laboratory methods of synthesis, measurement, control and analysis. It describes advances in molecular-scale engineering, including switching and memory systems, Schottky and electroluminescent diodes, field-effect transistors, and photovoltaic devices and solar cells.


". . .highly beneficial to all researchers engaged in properties of organic solids. "

---Bulletin of Electrochemistry

". . .It is the merit of this book that it not only provides a broad overview of this rapidly developing field but also. . .presents each special, separate topic as a contribution from well-known researchers active in that area, each of whom has made significant advances in the topic under review. . . .I am sure that this cooperative effort will become, and remain, a standard reference for years to come. "

---Felix Gutmann, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
