About this Textbook

This book has its origins in courses taught by the author to various und- graduate and graduate students at the Indian Institute of Technology, K- pur, India. The diversity of inorganic chemistry and its impact on polymer chemistry has been profound. This subject matter has grown considerably in the last decade and the need to present it in a coherent manner to young minds is a pedagogic challenge. The aim of this book is to present to the students an introduction to the developments in Inorganic and - ganometallic polymers. This book is divided into eight chapters. Chapter 1 provides a general overview on the challenges of Inorganic polymer synthesis. This is f- lowed by a survey of organic polymers and also includes some basic f- tures of polymers. Chapters 3-8 deal with prominent families of inorganic and organometallic polymers. Although the target group of this book is the undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, chemical engineering and materials science it is also hoped that chemists and related scientists in industry would find this book useful. I am extremely thankful to my wife Sudha who not only encouraged me throughout but also drew all the Figures and Schemes of this book. I also thank my children Adithya and Aarathi for their constant concern on the progress of this book. I express my acknowledgment to the editorial team of Springer-Verlag for their cooperation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"... Der Autor beeindruckt durch ausgezeichnetes Fachwissen und hervorragende Kenntniss der Fachliteratur. Der Text ist gut lesbar und fehlerfrei, die Abbildungen sind klar und sorgfältig erstellt, und ein gutes Sachwortverzeichnis ist auch vorhanden. Das Buch ist jedem Wissenschaftler, der sich mit anorganischen Polymeren beschäftigt, zu empfehlen, kann aber auch Studierenden und allen, die sich einen Überblick über jüngste Entwicklungen auf diesem Gebiet verschaffen wollen (speziell zur Synthese) nahegelegt werden."
Journal: "Angewandte Chemie", Vol. 118, Issue 10, pp. 1532-1533

"Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers is an advanced textbook targeting advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, and presumably also full-grown chemists from the fields of macromolecular and inorganic chemistry. The size of the well-written book is suitable for a one semester lecture/course on the topic. … The book is exquisitely produced. … The book is a clear must-have for all libraries featuring academic chemistry literature." (Thomas Lazar, Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics, Vol. 207 (10), 2006)

"This volume is the result of information collected and used by Chandrasekhar (Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur) as course material for numerous undergraduate and graduate students; that probably accounts for the exceptional clarity of the writing, which effectively communicates technical content while retaining reader interest. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students." (P. G. Heiden, CHOICE, March 2006)

"This book by Vadapalli Chandrasekhar provides a very useful and timely survey of the broad area with ample discussion of the recent developments from the last decade. … I can certainly recommend this book to any practitioner in the field, and also to students and industrial scientists … . clearly demonstrates an excellent knowledge of the field and the recent literature. The work is very well-written and is generally error-free with clear and carefully created structures and, in my view, represents a very valuable contribution." (Ian Manners, Angewandte Chemie, Vol. 45 (10), 2006)
