Nanostructures refer to materials that have relevant dimensions on the nanometer length scales and reside in the mesoscopic regime between isolated atoms and molecules in bulk matter. These materials have unique physical properties that are distinctly different from bulk materials. Self-Assembled Nanostructures provides systematic coverage of basic nanomaterials science including materials assembly and synthesis, characterization, and application. Suitable for both beginners and experts, it balances the chemistry aspects of nanomaterials with physical principles. It also highlights nanomaterial-based architectures including assembled or self-assembled systems. Filled with in-depth discussion of important applications of nano-architectures as well as potential applications ranging from physical to chemical and biological systems, Self-Assembled Nanostructures is the essential reference or text for scientists involved with nanostructures.

"Self-Assembled Nanostructures is an excellent introductory-level book that provides a systematic coverage of all basic principles of self-assembly science and technology but it also provides an indepth discussion of many fundamental aspects. The volume is therefore intended as an appropriate and useful reference source for both beginners and expert scientists working in this fascinating research area. The volume was written by five prominent scientists who have made substantial contributions to the field."
