"This book is a wonderful balance between nanoscience and nanoengineering. It is very useful, especially for researchers and graduate students, to understand cross-cutting potential in developing nanotechnology applications. ... This is a timely...book on this subject. It is written by a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers. ... There are very few academic programs exclusively dedicated to nanoscience and nanoengineering. Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering is one such dedicated program. Most of the authors have an affiliation with this school. This brings reliability and authenticity to the book."
-Dr. Jitendra S. Tate, Ingram School of Engineering, Texas State University, San Marcos, USA
"... presents the state-of-art technological and scientific advances in the field of nanotechnology covering a range of topics-nanoelectronics, nanobio, nanomedicine, modeling at nanolevel, engineering nanomaterials, and nanotoxicology-that are representative areas in which significant advances in nanotechnology have been made in recent years. It will be useful for students and researchers to learn about a variety of fields of research in nanotechnology."
-Mahesh Hosur, Tuskegee University, Alabama, USA
"... a comprehensive encyclopedic monograph of the achievements of the research in nanotechnology oriented towards the application in medicine and biomedical engineering. ... The monograph was written by a collective of competent specialists and would be very useful for readers with wide-ranging scientific interests as well as for the organizers of clinics and enterprises producing medical equipment and drugs."
-Nguyen Van Hieu, Editor-in-Chief, Advances in Natural Sciences: Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Vietnam
"Using authors that span materials and biological science, this book succeeds in covering the full spectrum of nanomaterial topics in 15 chapters. To achieve this, a major emphasis is placed on bio-nanoscience, nanomanufacturing, and the associated nano-safety concerns. ... Experienced researchers in the nanoscience and nanoengineering field will find this book a useful survey of some of the sub-fields."
