Materials Sciences

The nascent field of materials sciences is a fast-growing subject area in the De Gruyter portfolio that is distinguished by fresh topics and new authors.

The contemporary nature of this science is evidenced by its focus on cross-sectional technologies and their application in commerce and the business sector, with content provided by outstanding, internationally renowned scientists.

As part of the development of this subject area, a new graduate textbook series was founded with a particular relevance from master’s to advanced students . Even those just starting out in this profession will find this series offers a correspondingly appropriate introduction to industry-relevant topics.

Our NANO Online reference has been launched in 2016. This resource summarizes 10 years of results in nanoscience in one online reference. Of course, journals, manuals and monographs will continue to help round off our range of offerings.
