Chemistry of Nanomaterials: Fundamentals and Applications provides a foundational introduction to this chemistry. Beginning with an introduction to the field of nanoscience and technology, the book goes on to outline a whole range of important effects, interactions and properties. Tools used to assess such properties are discussed, followed by chapters putting this fundamental knowledge in context by providing examples of nanomaterials and their applications in the real world. Drawing on the experience of its expert authors, this book is an accessible introduction to the interactions at play in nanomaterials for both upper-level students and researchers.
