With the development of courses on materials synthesis and the need to carry out specific chemical transformations in the laboratory, good practical advice will be needed for those requiring more detail on conjugated materials synthesis. The purpose of this book is to give researchers and students an introduction and reference that efficiently provides general information for each important synthetic method category and a number of examples from the literature to convey practically important variations. It is useful as an outline for advanced organic and materials science courses as well as a good introduction and desk reference for new and experienced researchers in the field.
Dr. Timothy Parker is currently a Principal Research Scientist at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has over 20 years of experience in practical synthesis on conjugated organic materials and polymers in both academic and company settings. Professor Seth Marder has authored and co-authored over 320 peer-reviewed publications involving the synthesis of novel organic electronic and photonic materials. He has also co-authored numerous books and book chapters on materials and has taught undergraduate, graduate, and special classes for the American Chemical Society on synthetic organic materials and applications. His 30 years of experience as an educator and research in the field of organic electronic and photonic materials gives him a unique perspective on the theoretical and practical aspects of the variety of synthetic methods available to modern organic materials students and professional researchers.
