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
