By Michael Springborg and Yi Dong (Eds.)

The current e-book describes a wide number of forms of chain platforms (nanowires), together with shorter chains which are artificially produced for example in break-junction experiments, chains synthesized as visitors contained in the channels of a number crystal, crystalline chain compounds, natural polymers (synthetic metals), and charge-transfer salts, therefore masking an strange wealth of structures. either experimental and theoretical experiences are mentioned. specific emphasis is wear illustrating the precise phenomena that take place in such quasi-one-dimensional platforms, and the way theoretical and experimental efforts were utilized in choosing these homes which are particular for really one-dimensional structures from these of quasi-one-dimensional structures. furthermore, it really is proven that metal chains are available in a wide variety of platforms, but in addition that chains of metals no longer consistently are metal.

· provides a unifying description of very many various phenomena and systems
· High-Tc superconductors, conjugated polymers, gold nanowires, carbon nanotubes, chain compounds, and charge-transfer salts are all handled in a single volume
· Illustrates the very huge variety of quasi-one-dimensional structures
