The combination of new laser and microscopical techniques has stimulated major advances in space–resolved chemistry in the solid phase. Structures, properties, reactions and functionalities can all be studied as a function of size, between the molecular dimension and Avogadro′s volume. As a result mesoscopic chemistry has become one of the most exciting areas of scientific research.
Organic Mesoscopic Chemistry focuses on organic molecular systems and outlines the most dynamic areas of research. The book demonstrates clearly that in the 21st Century mesoscopic chemistry will not only be central to the chemical sciences but will be at the hub of a wide area of interdisciplinary research.
