Handbook of Nanophase and Nanostructured Materials
These books, with of a total of 40 chapters, are a comprehensive and complete introductory text on the synthesis, characterization, and applications of nanomaterials. They are aimed at graduate students and researchers whose background is chemistry, physics, materials science, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, and biomedical science.
The first part emphasizes the chemical and physical approaches used for synthesis of nanomaterials. The second part emphasizes the techniques used for characterizing the structure and properties of nanomaterials, aiming at describing the physical mechanism, data interpretation, and detailed applications of the techniques. The final part focuses on systems of different nanostructural materials with novel properties and applications.
