The first edition of Pope and Swenberg's Electronic Processes of Organic Crystals, published in 1982, became the classic reference in the field. It provides a tutorial on the experimental and related theoretical properties of aromatic hydrocarbon crystals and includes emerging work on polymers and superconductivity. This new edition has been expanded to cover the major theoretical and experimental advances over the last fifteen years. It contains a unified description of what is known in almost every aspect of the field. The basic phenomena covered in the first edition included fluorescence, exciton and charge carrier generation, transport, recombination, and photoemission; the new edition adds solitons, polarons, bipolarons, spin waves, and charge density waves. It provides in-depth coverage of such model polymers such as polyacetylene, polydiacetylene, poly (phenylene-vinylene), polyanilines, polysilanes, and fullerenes. It also provides detailed treatments of the expanding areas of electroluminescence, non-linear optics, organic magnets, organic superconductors, and Langmuir-Blodgett films. In addition, it contains a chapter on major applications, including LED's, photocopiers, photoconductors, batteries, transistors, liquid crystals, photorefractive devices, and sensors. As in the first volume, the authors take informed positions in controversial areas. This book will be an essential reference for organic material scientists, whether they are experienced researchers or just entering the field. It will also be a reliable guide to anyone interested in this rapidly growing field

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Along with Pope, Swenberg wrote 'Electronic Processes in Organic Crystals, ' which was published by Oxford University Press in 1982. The book was translated into Russian and also was distributed in China. A second edition of that book, titled 'Electronic Processes in Organic Crystals and Polymer, ' [sic] will be published this year by Oxford University Press. 'We begged Oxford University Press to send us a copy of the book because his health was failing.' said Pope. 'They had someone handbind one copy and send it to him. He saw the book on Monday and died a day later. I think waiting to see the book gave him one day of life.'"--Meriden-Wallingford Record-Journal
