St. Louis (OBBeC) - Aldrich, a division of Sigma-Aldrich, has released its new "materials by application" Materials Science catalogue.

According to the announcement form Sigma-Aldrich, the catalogue features more than 4,000 products for research in Alternative Energy, Organic Electronics, Metal & Ceramic Science, Nanomaterials, Micro/NanoElectronics and Polymer Science. Each chapter contains technical information and highlights from some of the latest advances in these fields.

"This catalogue serves as a materials supply source as well as a tool to assist materials researchers working in the leading areas of modern materials research such as sustainable energy, bio- and soft-materials and electronics and photonics," said Dr. Shashi Jasty, initiative lead for Materials Science at Sigma-Aldrich.

"The structuring of the Aldrich Materials Science catalogue is geared toward science and solutions to problems not just traditional materials," said Professor Joachim O. Radler with the Center of NanoScience and Department of Physics at Ludwig-Maximilians University, Munich, Germany. "That's what makes this catalogue so valuable."

The printed catalog is a complement to Aldrich's online product catalogue, which provides quick access to an easy-to-browse compilation of advanced materials.
