Author Information

Yoshiki Chujo completed his PhD at Kyoto University in 1980 and then joined Nagoya University as an assistant professor in 1981. In 1983, he joined the group of Prof. J. E. McGrath at Virginia Tech in the U.S.A. as a postdoctoral research fellow. He returned to Kyoto University as a lecturer in 1986 and has been Professor of Polymer Chemistry there since 1994. His research interests focus on polymer synthesis, inorganic polymers, and polymeric hybrid materials. He has published more than 400 papers.

"The book is quite readable. A knowledgeable synthetic chemist can appreciate the detail and the examples that have been highlighted to emphasize the importance of each methodology. . . Overall, however, the book is very good and a worthwhile addition to the libraries of those who appreciate synthetic chemistry in conjugated polymers." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, 23 March 2011)

"An indispensable source for every synthetic polymer chemist." (Robotics Technology, 15 February 2011)
