ISBN 1 85573 933 X
Nanotechnology is an area of science and technology where dimensions and tolerances in the range of 0.1nm to 100nm play a critical role. Nanotechnology has opened up new worlds of opportunity. It encompasses precision engineering as well as electronics, electromechanical systems and mainstream biomedical applications in areas as diverse as gene therapy, drug delivery and novel drug discovery techniques. Nanostructured materials present exciting opportunities for manipulating structure and properties on the nanometer scale. The ability to engineer novel structures at the molecular level has led to unprecedented opportunities for materials design. This new book provides detailed insights into the synthesis/structure and property relationships of nanostructured materials. A valuable book for materials scientists, mechanical and electronic engineers and medical researchers.
