From the reviews:
"The goal of this book is to provide the reader with the state of the art research and developments in the ongoing ‘bottom-up’ nanoscience and nanotechnology. … various readers with different backgrounds, physicists, chemists, biologists, materials scientists, and even medical doctors, will find some interesting and valuable information. Hence, the book will find a place in any multidisciplinary library. It will also be very useful to a scientist who has to write a research proposal in the nano-domain … ." (Fernande Grandjean and Gary J. Long, Physicalia, Vol. 30 (2), 2008)
From the Back Cover
This book is a result of the research and educational activities of a group of outstanding scientists worldwide who have authored the chapters of this book dealing with the behavior of nanoscale building blocks. It contains a variety of subjects covering computational, dry and wet nanotechnology. The state-of-the-art subject matters presented here provide the reader with the latest developments on ongoing nanoscience and nanotechnology research from the bottom-up approach, which starts with with atoms and molecules as molecular building blocks.
