This is an excerpt from the content

According to the National Nanotechnology Initiative, nanotechnology (http://www.nano.gov) operates “at the atomic, molecular and supramolecular levels, in the length scale of approximately 1–100 nm [1 nm = 10−9 m] range, in order to understand and create materials, devices and systems with fundamentally new properties and functions because of their small structure.” This area of science and engineering, which has recently become increasingly important because of the distinctive properties and technological applications of nanostructured materials, obviously has a significant “chemical” component, and this book explores the chemistry, both traditional and emerging, associated with nanoscale materials.

Nanoscale Materials in Chemistry is an updated and greatly expanded version of the first edition of the same name, edited by Kenneth J. Klabunde, University Distinguished Professor at Kansas State University (Wiley-Interscience: New York, NY, 2001; xiii + 292 pp.; $99.95; ISBN: 978-0-471-39
