Materials Science

As a result of the significant media attention to nanoscience and nanotechnology in the recent years, we've seen a large scale increase in the number of materials science books available today. Elsevier's Materials Science portfolio includes a wide range of books and eBooks in a variety of different formats from undergraduate textbooks to multi-volume reference works investigating the relationship between the structure of materials and their properties. The field examines elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil and electrical engineering and Elsevier's material science books cover seven major sub-disciplines: Energy & Power, Metals & Alloys, Ceramics, Composite Material Science, Polymer Science & Biomaterials, Interdisciplinary Materials Science and Structural Materials.

Spotlight on Phillip Choi

Author of The Elements of Polymer Science & Engineering, 3rd Edition

Prof. Phillip Choi received his B.A.Sc. in chemical engineering in 1988 from the University of British Columbia and his M.A.Sc. and Ph.D., also in chemical engineering, in 1992 and 1995, respectively, from the University of Waterloo. While pursuing his graduate studies, he received scholarships from the Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada to study solubility properties of non-ionic surfactants and polyolefin blends under the guidance...
