About this book

Introduction

This book covers various molecular, metal-organic, dynamic covalent, polymer and other gels, focusing on their driving interactions, structures and properties. It consists of six chapters demonstrating interesting examples of these gels, classified by the type of driving interaction, and also discusses the effect of these interactions on the gels’ structures and properties. The book offers an interesting and useful guide for a broad readership in various fields of chemical and materials science.

About the authors

Jianyong Zhang received his PhD in Chemistry from the National University of Singapore in 2003 after obtaining a B.Sc. from Central South University of Technology, China in 1996 and an MSc from Nankai University, China in 1999. He was a post-doctoral research fellow at the Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse (CNRS), France from 2002 to 2003 and at Queen’s University Belfast from 2003 to 2006. He joined Sun Yat-Sen University, China where he currently serves as a professor at the School of Materials Science and Engineering, in 2006. His research interests and activities are mainly in the interdisciplinary areas of supramolecular chemistry, materials chemistry, catalysis, and organometallic/coordination chemistry. His recent work primarily focuses on dynamic covalent gels, metal-organic gels and coordination-based supramolecular materials.
