  • Comprehensive Biophysics
    Covers biophysical techniques for structural characterization of macromolecules and cells, folding of proteins and nucleic acids, molecular motors and motility, membranes, channels, cell biophysics, bioenergetics, and simulation and modelling.

  • Encyclopedia of Catalysis
    A-to-Z reference work covering the most significant aspects of homogeneous, heterogeneous, asymmetric, biomimetic, and biological catalysis.

  • Comprehensive Nanoscience and Technology
    Five-volume work that focuses on the major classes of nanomaterials in terms of their synthesis, structure, and applications.

  • Encyclopedia of Materials Science & Technology
    Eleven-volume encyclopedia providing comprehensive coverage of topics in materials science and technology with a particular focus on functional phenomena, structural phenomena, fundamental core theory, structural materials, polymers and materials chemistry, and functional materials.

  • Comprehensive Biomaterials II, 2nd edition
    Seven-volume online encyclopedia that addresses the current status of nearly all biomaterials in the field, their strengths and weaknesses, their future prospects, appropriate analytical methods and testing, device applications and performance, emerging candidate materials as competitors and disruptive technologies, research and development, regulatory management, commercial aspects, and applications, including medical applications.
