Research on metal-containing liquid crystals is a rapidly expanding, multidisciplinary field with new materials continually being synthesized and novel applications being developed. 'Metallomesogens' is the first comprehensive survey of the field, introducing the reader to:

* materials design
* synthesis
* physical properties
* emerging applications

Carefully selected references round off this well-organized compendium. It is an indispensable guide to experienced researchers in coordination and organometallic chemistry as well as in liquid-crystal and materials science. Newcomers and graduate students will also benefit from this didactically sound introduction to the field.
