This second, comprehensive edition of the pioneering book in this field has been completely revised and extended, now stretching to two volumes.
The result is a comprehensive summary of layer-by-layer assembled, truly hybrid nanomaterials and thin films, covering organic, inorganic, colloidal, macromolecular and biological components, plus the assembly of nanoscale films derived from them on surfaces.

Praise for the first edition:

"... highly recommended to anyone interested in the field... and to scientists and researchers active in materials development..." –Polymer News

Gero Decher is Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at the University of Strasbourg, France, senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (IUF) and member of the International Center for Frontier Research in Chemistry. His research team is located at CNRS Institut Charles Sadron in Strasbourg where he continues to develop the layer-by-layer assembly method in collaboration with his colleagues Pierre Schaaf and Jean-Claude Voegel. This method is applied in many laboratories world-wide in various scientific disciplines including chemistry, materials science and biotechnology. Gero Decher received numerous awards, including the ECIS-Rhodia prize in 2010 and the Grand Prix of the French "Académie des Sciences" for Nanobiotechnology in 2009. 
Joseph B. Schlenoff is Mandelkern Professor of Polymer Science and Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Florida State University, USA. His laboratory is engaged in multidisciplinary research centered on the use of novel structures made from polyelectrolytes that are deposited using the layer-by-layer technique. In 2010 he won an award within the Florida State University Grant Assistance Program aimed at research close to commercialization and is currently working on a large NIH-financed research project to make medical implants safer for in-vivo use by coating with biocompatible polymer layers. In 2011 Joseph Schlenoff received a Gutenberg Chair at the University of Strasbourg.
