Is a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Syracuse University, New York, USA. He received his B. Sc. from the University of Leicester (England) and his Ph.D. and D.Sc. from the University of London. He has utilized surfactant assemblies-aqueous and reversed micelles, Langmuir monolayers, Langmuir–Blodgett films, vesicles andpolymerized vesicles, and bilayer lipid membranes–for molecular organization and compartmentalization. His research has been reported in more that 250 primary publications and summarized in 50 review articles and three books. He has received several awards, including the Langmuir Distinguished Lecturer Award and the ACS National Award in Colloid or Surface Chemistry.

Nanocrystalline particulate films, dispersions of nanoparticles in monolayers in which the inter-particle distances can be controlled, and systems containing nanoparticles incorporated between the head groups of organic thin films (see Fig.) produced using a wet colloid-chemical approach are reviewed. Size-quantized metallic, magnetic, and semiconducting particles are cosnidered and the development of nanostructured devices discussed
