    Editorial Reviews

    "Lecture transcripts include some experimental data and, as always with this series, provide a wealth of information not readily available elsewhere….last volume is recommended to all chemists interest in catalyzing organic reactions. A copy should be in all industrial libraries."
    Organic Process Research & Development, September, 2005
    "…excellent reviews of proposed technology…excellent way for an engineer, manager, or student in the area of electric vehicle propulsion and power systems to learn about new technologies and road block issues."
    IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2005
