Interest in hybrid materials has accelerated recently, in particular because tailoring materials properties through organization of organic/inorganic composites at nanometer length scales is now an important focus for numerous diverse research domains. Hybrid materials research is further motivated by efforts to build structures and hierarchies nanometer-by-nanometer in one, two or three dimensions. Still a third motivation derives from the roadmap that guides miniaturization in the electronics and photonics industries. Finally, efforts towards hybrid materials are also driven by the scientific challenges involved in the creation of new forms of matter (nonlinear properties) and the potential to discover and develop completely new scientific principles. As with previous volumes in this popular series, the objective here is to create a communal forum for researchers involved in all areas of organic/inorganic hybrid materials to share perspectives, to learn about leading-edge science and engineering occurring around the world, and to develop new ideas/points of view and collaborations. The volume is divided into focus areas that address synthesis and characterization methods, functional hybrid materials, hybrid materials influenced by biology, structured mesoporous materials and materials with multiscale organization. Topics include: methods of patterning hybrid materials; hybrid materials for photonic applications; mesoporous films and monoliths; biofunctional materials; layered hybrid materials; applications-oriented hybrid materials; hybrid materials for electronics, optoelectronics and semiconductor applications; methods of characterizing hybrid materials; and novel synthetic methods.
