This book takes a "bottom-up" approach, beginning with atoms and molecules - molecular building blocks - and assembling them to build nanostructured materials. Coverage includes Carbon Nanotubes, Nanowires, and Diamondoids. The applications presented here will enable practitioners to design and build nanometer-scale systems. These concepts have far-reaching implications: from mechanical to chemical processes, from electronic components to ultra-fine sensors, from medicine to energy, and from pharmaceuticals to agriculture and food.

From the reviews:
"The goal of this book is to provide the reader with the state of the art research and developments in the ongoing `bottom-up' nanoscience and nanotechnology. ... various readers with different backgrounds, physicists, chemists, biologists, materials scientists, and even medical doctors, will find some interesting and valuable information. Hence, the book will find a place in any multidisciplinary library. It will also be very useful to a scientist who has to write a research proposal in the nano-domain ... ."
