Material Matters and Materials Matter™?_Part I_ Acknowledgements and Dedication

This is really a double appreciation and a dedication to a lost friend.

The first acknowledgment is to the Materials Chemists whom I feel I have been neglecting of late, although some overlap occurs with my Materials Science and Engineering "defined" site.

In this case I am referring, the reader to the commercial materials chemistry company Sigma-Aldrich and their Learning Centre freely available reviews Material Matters ™ (12 quarterly reviews from 2006 to date,subjects covered: Alternative Energy Materials,Biomaterials, Metal & Ceramic Science, Micro & Nanoelectronics, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnology,Organic Electronics, Polymer Science) and Tutorials.

Dedication to a friend and mentor.
Jack Harris, the regular Materials World columnist, presents his views on topical issues under the heading Materials Matter. The journal has recently announce quote: "the sad news that Jack Harris, Fellow of the Institute (FIMM) died in February 2009. There will therefore be no Materials Matters columns for the time being. A full obituary for Jack will appear in due course in Materials World. "
