Abstract/Summary Materials science deals with the relationships of processing, performance, properties and structures of materials. It covers chemical, physical and engineering areas of almost all materials used in industries and includes practical and theoretical aspects of materials from atomic to molecular and bulk levels. Originally materials science covered metallurgy and solid-state physics. Various metals and metal alloys and ceramics were manufactured to provide materials with diversified properties and strengths. The developments of science and engineering have led to the introduction of materials science concepts to almost every field of science and engineering. It is adapted from metallurgy to polymers, ceramic, biomedical implants materials, textiles, paper, pharmaceutical, agricultural and food materials. Some common fields of materials science are described in Table 1.1 . Material scientists and engineers improve traditional materials, develop new materials and produce them efficiently and economically. Thus they need knowledge of science and engineering or can be a part of a multidisciplinary team. In fact, gastronomy is often the artwork of food materials science. [extract]
