Abstract:
Research and Markets (www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6d7471/trace_analysis_wit) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Trace Analysis with Nanomaterials" to their offering.

Research and Markets: Trace Analysis with Nanomaterials

Dublin, Ireland | Posted on August 24th, 2010

Presenting a wide variety of methods, this book provides a comprehensive overview of the current state -- ranging from bioanalysis to electrochemical sensing, forensics and chemistry, while also covering the toxicity aspects of nanomaterials to humans and the environment.

Edited by rising stars in the field, the first section on biological analysis includes an investigation of nanoparticles and micro- and nanofluidic systems, while the second, environmental analysis, looks at the detection, monitoring, and sensing of explosives as well as pollutants, among other topics. The final part covers such advanced methods as the synthesis and characterization of gold nanorods.

For analytical chemists, materials scientists, chemists working in trace analysis, and spectroscopists.

Authors Bio:

Dr. David Pierce received his bachelor's degree in Chemistry at McGill University in 1985 and his Ph. D. in Analytical Chemistry in 1991 at the University of Vermont. Following post-doctorial work at the University of Texas - Austin and a short research exchange at the Technical University in Budapest, he joined the University of North Dakota in 1992, where he currently serves as Professor and Chair of the Chemistry Department. Dr. Pierce has authored more than 60 assorted works in areas of microchemical and electrochemical analysis. His current research is focused on the development of ultrasensitive analytical methods to determine trace elements in environmental matracies.

Dr. Jullia Xiaojun Zhao is a tenured faculty member in the Department of Chemistry at the University of North Dakota. She has worked in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology for ten years. She has authored for more than 50 publications and holds three patents. Currently, she is serving on editorial boards of four international scientific journals, and is the Principle Investigator for three US National Science Foundation awards. Dr. Zhao's research group is focused on the development of various photosensitive nanomaterials and applications of these nanomaterials in biological studies. In addition, Dr. Zhao is interested in the development of nanocatalysts for efficient energy conversion. Currently she is involved in projects from the design and synthesis of novel nanoparticles, to the investigation of toxicity of nanomaterials to living system and the development of nanosensors for trace analysis
