"In his now celebrated lecture at the 1959 meeting of the American Physical Society, Richard Feynman pondered the potential of miniaturization in the physical sciences. His vision, based on known technology, examined the limits set by physical principles and proposed a variety of new nano-tools including the concept of ""atom-by-atom"" fabrication. In the intervening decades, many of these predictions have become reality. In particular, the development and application of nanofluidics is becoming a competitive and exciting field of research. These nanoscale analytical instruments employ micromachined features and are able to manipulate fluid samples with high precision and efficiency. In a fundamental sense, chip-based analytical systems have been shown to have many advantages over their conventional (larger) analogues. Despite the growth of this field, there are surprisingly few books dedicated to nanofluidics. This book will fill the gap in the literature for a text focusing on bioanalytical applications. Written at a level accessible to experts and non-experts alike, it has the potential to become a mainstream text book for advanced nanobiotechnology courses within academic institutions."

Nanofluidics: nanoscience and nanotechnology

Reviewed by Sally Peyman

This book is the latest addition to the RSC's Nanoscience and Nanotechnology series dealing specifically with the growing interest in the field of nanofluidics, which involves the flow of fluids through channels fabricated on the nanometre scale.

The use of lab-on-a-chip devices in the micrometre scale has already been established and nanofluidics is described within these pages as the natural progression from microfluidics.

The content is well balanced and the authors have successfully covered a broad field including motivations for nanofluidic research, fabrication, fundamental physical characteristics of the nanochannel environment, fluid dynamics, and flow behaviour. It also covers the application of nanofluidics to the controlled manipulation and detection o
