""Die Herausgeber haben es geschafft, eine umfangreiche Monographie über die Entwicklung wesentlicher, wenn auch naturgemäß nicht aller Bereiche der Siliciumchemie der letzten Jahre zusammenzustellen.""

""Den Herausgebern ist es gemeinsam mit den Autoren der Einzelbeiträgen gelungen, eine vielseitig ausstrahlende Monographie zu aktuellen, auch in der praktischen Bedeutung herausragenden Bereichen der Siliciumchemie vorzulegen, die einen viel breiteren Leserkreis anspricht als nur >Siliciumchemiker<.""
