Understanding Nanotechnology book

4. Understanding Nanotechnology

by Scientific American

Everyone today knows what technology is, but what is nanotechnology? Taken from the Greek, nano means 'one billionth part of' a whole. In modern parlance, it means very, very small. Nano-tech is the next step after miniaturization. Mobile phones are miniaturized versions of traditional landline phones. Watches are miniature clocks. Desktop computers are miniature versions of the original analogue calculating machines.

Nanochemistry: A Chemical Approach to Nanomaterials book

6. Nanochemistry: A Chemical Approach to Nanomaterials

by Ozin, Geoffrey A.

The global success of the 1st edition of Nanochemistry, and exceptionally rapid change in the field, has necessitated the publication of a 2nd edition after only three years. This truly major update highlights the latest breakthroughs using over 80 new case histories, more problem sets, and more teaching principles. Written for teachers and students, the book catapults the reader to the forefront of the field. Using simple language, and focusing on the concepts, it covers all chemistry techniques commonly used to synthesize nanomaterials. Case histories enable readers to "connect the dots" and understand the possibilities ahead whilst problem sets encourage students to think creatively and laterally about what they have learnt. The extensive bibliography will satisfy those hungry for more detail.
