The global success of the 1st edition of Nanochemistry, along with exceptionally rapid change in the field, has necessitated the publication of a 2nd edition after only three years. This truly major update highlights the latest breakthroughs using more than eighty new case histories, more problem sets, and more teaching principles. Nanotechnology is touted to begin a new era by bringing us materials that were not available before. This book describes the fascinating chemistry behind nanotechnology in a clear and easy to read style. Aimed at teachers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates it provides an authoritative, rigorous and hype-free guide to this burgeoning field. For those who already have some knowledge of the subject, the book remains invaluable as a reference and source of inspiration for future research or teaching. Suitable for those coming from a physics, biology, medicine, materials science, engineering or chemistry background, the book is ideal for whoever needs a birds-eye view of the field. The extensive bibliography allows the reader to find any level of detail behind each of the subjects.Nanotechnology is touted to begin a new era by bringing us materials that were not available before.
