Nanoscale Assembly: Chemical Techniques - Nanostructure Science and Technology (Paperback)Wilhelm T. S. Huck (editor)
- We can order this
Nanotechnology has received tremendous interest over the last decade, not only from the scientific community but also from a business perspective and from the general public. Although nanotechnology is still at the largely unexplored frontier of science, it has the potential for extremely exciting technological innovations that will have an enormous impact on areas as diverse as information technology, medicine, energy supply and probably many others. The miniturization of devices and structures will impact the speed of devices and information storage capacity. More importantly, though, nanotechnology should lead to completely new functional devices as nanostructures have fundamentally different physical properties that are governed by quantum effects. When nanometer sized features are fabricated in materials that are currently used in electronic, magnetic, and optical applications, quantum behavior will lead to a set of unprecedented properties. The interactions of nanostructures with biological materials are largely unexplored. Future work in this direction should yield enabling technologies that allows the study and direct manipulation of biological processes at the (sub) cellular level.

From the reviews:
"The timely topic of Nanoscale Assembly encompasses such a large and expanding body of work that W. T. S. Huck was both wise and insightful to focus the scope of his book onto Chemical Techniques. Moreover, by gathering authors with contrasting backgrounds in chemistry and physical chemistry, the editor showed a genuine will to stimulate a debate ... . the individual contributions are good introductions to their respective fields. ... this book could be useful for students or for general multidisciplinary reading ... ." (Erik Dujardin, Angewandte Chemie, Vol. 45 (28), 2006)
