Description: Much more than a slight revision, this second edition of the successful"Handbook of Liquid Crystals" is completely restructured and streamlined, withupdated as well as completely new topics, 100% more content and a new team ofeditors and authors. As such, it fills the gap for a definitive, single sourcereference for all those working in the field of organized fluids and will setthe standard for the next decade.The Handbook's new structure facilitates navigation and combines thepresentation of the content by topic and by liquid-crystal type: A fundamentalsvolume sets the stage for an understanding of the liquid crystal state ofmatter, while individual volumes cover the main types and forms, with a finalvolume bringing together the diverse liquid crystal phases through theirapplications.This unrivaled, all-embracing coverage represents the undiluted knowledge onliquid crystals, making the Handbook a must-have wherever liquid crystals areinvestigated, produced or used, and in institutions where their science andtechnology is taught.Also available electronically on Wiley Online Library,www.wileyonlinelibrary.com/ref/holc Volume 1: Fundamentals of Liquid CrystalsVolume 2: Physical Properties and Phase Behavior of Liquid CrystalsVolume 3: Nematic and Chiral Nematic Liquid CrystalsVolume 4: Smectic and Columnar Liquid CrystalsVolume 5: Non-Conventional Liquid CrystalsVolume 6: Nanostructured and Amphiphilic Liquid CrystalsVolume 7: Supermolecular and Polymeric Liquid CrystalsVolume 8: Applications of Liquid Crystals
