Nanoparticles From Theory to Application

by Gunter Schmid

Nanoparticles From Theory to Application Synopsis

Very small particles are able to show astonishing properties. For example, gold atoms can be combined like strings of pearls, while nanoparticles can form one-, two- and three-dimensional layers. These assemblies can be used, for instance, as semiconductors, but other electronic as well as optical properties are possible. An introduction to the booming field of nanoworld or nanoscience , from fundamental principles to their use in novel applications. With its clear structure and comprehensive coverage, backed by numerous examples from recent literature, this is a prime reference for chemists and materials scientists working with and developing nanoparticle systems. A bestselling title in its second edition. A must-have reference for chemists and materials scientists.

Nanoparticles From Theory to Application Press Reviews

Gunter Schmid, the Editor of 'Nanoparticles', is successful in securing the participation of prominent leading experts; he also excels in integrating the chapters in such a way that there is no disjointedness between the different topics which is a great advantage for the reader. ChemPhysChem ...this book is useful for chemists interested in novel methods of wet-chemical nanoparticle synthesis but also for anyone looking for an introduction into the understanding of the electrical, optical and magnetic properties of nanoparticles. Particle Characterization & Particle Systems Biogenetic magnetite provides great inspiration to laboratories active in nanotechnology, as for instance the book by Gunther Schmid testifies to. With its clear structure and comprehensive coverage, backed by numerous examples from the recent literature, this is a prime reference for chemists and materials scientists working with and developing nanoparticle systems. Zeitschrift fur Kristallographie This information resource would be of a great value for graduate students and scientists working with nanoparticle systems. E-STREAMS ...a homogeneous, integrated, well-crafted, and highly readable volume--I strongly recommend that instructors take a serious look at this text--it is also of extraordinary value as a resource for the established researcher... Journal of the American Society The book succeeds in conveying important developments in the field, as well as providing useful information for solving actual research problems ... it is addressing practitioners in industry, as well as university libraries. I definitely recommend this text. Applied Organometallic Chemistry ...impressive... Ultramicroscopy
