Self–assembly is an important process in chemistry, biology, materials science, and related disciplines. Nanocrystals can be built by self–assembly and may have other properties than larger crystals or powders of the same material. Therefore, scientists want to know what the properties are and how to control them in order to produce materials with interesting and new applications.

Focusing on both academic questions and applications of self–assembly, this book discusses not only the self–organization of inorganic and magnetic nanocrystals, but also their collective optical and magnetic properties, as well as the in–situ fabrication of metal nanoparticles in solid matrices.

Professor Marie–Paule Pileni, the top scientist in this field, is joined by a select group of expert authors to provide 14 chapters covering important aspects of self–assembled nanomaterials. The result is invaluable reading for physicochemists, inorganic, polymer and structural chemists, materials scientists, physicists, and chemical engineers working with and/or developing nanoparticle systems.
