Metallic Nanomaterials by Challa S. S. R. Kumar


Metallic Nanomaterials by Challa S. S. R. Kumar

The Series The new book series Nanomaterials for the Life Sciences , successor to the highly acclaimed series Nanotechnology for the Life Sciences !, provides an in-depth overview of all nanomaterial types and their uses in the life sciences. Each volume is dedicated to a specific material class and covers fundamentals, synthesis and characterization strategies, structure-property relationships and biomedical applications. The new series brings nanomaterials to the life scientists and life science to the materials scientists so that synergies are seen and developed to the fullest. Written by international experts of various facets of this exciting field of research, the ten volumes of this single source of information comprehensively cover the complete range of nanomaterials for medical, biological and cybernetic applications. The series is aimed at scientists of the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, materials science, physics, bioengineering, and medicine, together with cell biology, biomedical engineering, pharmaceutical chemistry, and toxicology, both in academia and fundamental research as well as in pharmaceutical companies. Volume 1: Metallic Nanomaterials Volume 1 focuses on metallic nanomaterials synthesized from Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Palladium. Synthesis, characterization and the application of nanomaterials in the field of life science are discussed in detail. For more information on NmLS, please visit


[This book] cover[s] all the important aspects in a well-balanced and comprehensive way. This book provides a good overview of the special topics discussed, and many of the articles are of excellent quality. Researchers already familiar with the field will find valuable information and literature references about specific aspects, as well as complete and in-depth reviews of the respective subjects. This book contains a lot of useful and enlightening information. (Angewandte Chemistry, 2009)

This is a very good reference book for those wish to understand the versatile approaches to synthesis of noble metal nanomaterials and would like a comprehensive overview of their current applications in the life sciences... This is a very useful reference book for chemists and students working on preparative aspects of noble metal nanoparticles. I would also recommend it for teaching purposes on the graduate level. (Journal of the American Chemical Society, May 13, 2009)
