The broad objective of this book is to indicate the breadth and current status of the area of nanomaterials research and, in particular, to provide access to most of the basic material on the synthesis, properties and applications of nanomaterials. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in other fields who seek an extensive review of this subject, as well as researchers currently working in nanomaterials ... those parts with which I am familiar are authoritative and presented with clarity. The book is handsomely illustrated with many figures and the occasional micrograph ... There is ... no other book with such a broad coverage of nanomaterials and this text is to be welcomed for those who wish to enter the field or who are already involved in one of its many aspects. I recommend this book strongly.
