Surveying the Most Recent Experimental Approaches in Three Areas of Increasing Complexity within the Nanobiotechnology Industry: Nanoparticles, Nanos

DUBLIN, Ireland | Posted on March 16th, 2007

Following the spectacularly successful approach of the editors first book on the subject, chemists, life scientists, physicists and engineers have again been brought together here to explore what is probably the most fascinating area in current science and technology. The second book in the series ventures into many novel areas and techniques that have emerged since. To capture this highly interdisciplinary field, the book is organized into four parts. The first three parts survey most recent experimental approaches in three areas of increasing complexity: Nanoparticles, Nanostructures and Nanomachines. Within each category, individual contributions by leading edge research groups present what has so far been possible to achieve and where future developments are leading. A fourth section covers recent advances in the analytics of nanostructures that are a common prerequisite for moving back the boundaries in any one of the areas discussed in the first three parts of the book.
