Este título es una de las grandes apuestas de VCH Wiley, la parte alemana con más prestigio científico del grupo WILEY, de este año 2014. Se publica en febrero y, además, tiene casi un 22% de descuento en su precio de pre-publicación en la editorial, y que les ofrecemos en Librería Pons, por lo que creemos que vale la pena que dediquen unos minutos a leer esta alerta bibliográfica.

 

Mucho más que una revisión, esta segunda edición, completamente actualizada y revisada, ha sido reestructurada con nuevas materias, con contenido nuevo en su totalidad y con un nuevo equipo de editores y autores. La primera edición se publicó en 1998, hace 16 años, y dados los avances que se han realizado en la materia, podría haber quedado prácticamente obsoleta.

 

El primer volumen reúne los conceptos fundamentales de un área sumamente multidisciplinar (como es la de los cristales líquidos), necesarios para situarse en el estudio de cualquier materia relacionada. Las propiedades físicas generales que los caracterizan se discuten en el segundo volumen, para pasar después a reunir una completa información sobre cada tipo de cristal líquido dedicando un volumen completo a cristales líquidos Nemáticos y Quirales, otro a Esmécticos y Columnares e incluso a cristales líquidos no convencionales. Prueba de su actualidad y de su carácter imprescindible, es la descripción que se realiza de sistemas con nanotubos de carbono en el volumen dedicado a cristales líquidos Nanoestructurados y Anfifílicos. El volume 7, dedicado a los Polímeros Cristal Líquido, estudia tanto los cristales líquidos en estructuras biológicas, como el diseño, síntesis y propiedades de dendrímeros, polímeros de cadena lateral y principal y copolímeros bloque. Finalmente, cierra la obra un volumen de obligatoria revisión para cualquier investigador en esta materia, dedicado a la infinidad de aplicaciones que se pueden encontrar en la actualidad de estos sistemas cristal líquido.

 

Creemos que es una obra como no hay otra, aunque será mejor, puesto que es una obra tan especializada, que revisen el contenido del índice que les ofrecemos más abajo, aunque sea muy extenso, espero que comprendan que no lo hayamos resumido esta vez.

 

También podemos gestionar el acceso a la edición online, al mismo precio que la editorial. Pregúntennos y les enviaremos un presupuesto sin compromiso.
