Nanotechnology primer: The nanomaterials handbook

Abstract:
Exploring both commercially available and emerging materials, the Nanomaterials Handbook delves into the unique properties of materials that are realized at the nano level using language familiar to materials scientists. While it offers an in-depth investigation of carbon-based nanomaterials, which are as important to nanotechnology as silicon is to electronics, it goes beyond the usual discussion of nanotubes and nanofibers to consider graphite whiskers, cones and polyhedral crystals, and nanocrystalline diamonds. It also provides significant new information with regard to nanostructured semiconductors, ceramics, metals, biomaterials and polymers, as well as advances in drug delivery.
