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 for master‘s students. Even those just starting out in this profession will find this series offers a correspondingly appropriate introduction to industry-relevant topics.

From 2016, the NANO Database will also be launched. This resource will summarise 10 years of results in nanoscience in one database. Of course, journals, manuals and monographs will continue to help round off our range of offerings.


  • Highly topical issues from well-known authors
  • A growing portfolio – 90 titles within the last 3 years
  • Innovative products such as our Graduate Textbook series and the Nano Online Database
  • Newly established international journals
  • Collaborations with international societies such as the Mineralogical Society of America and the American Energy Society



  • Robert Schlögl, Director at the Fritz-Haber-Institut der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Berlin and Director at the MPI für Chemische Energiekonversion, Mülheim a. d. Ruhr, editor of the books Chemical Energy Storage and Nanocarbon-Inorganic Hybrids
  • Mario Leclerc, Université Laval, Kanada, editor of Functional Materials
  • Luigia Sabbatini, President of the Interdipartimental Center of Research and Services in the field of Cultural Heritage Diagnostics, the University of Bari and Head of the Chemistry Department of the University of Bari, Italy, editor of Polymer Surface Characterisation
  • Challa Kumar, Harvard University, Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology, Managing Director, Friend Energy Frontier Research Center, Editor-in-Chief Nanotechnology Reviews


  • Mineralogical Society of America: American Mineralogist: An International Journal of Earth und Planetary Materials


“The science and technology programme of De Gruyter captures timely key development lines of interdisciplinary research. In fast moving research areas the expert monographs are an excellent background for my own activities.”
