Nanostructuring Operations in Nanoscale Science and Engineering

by: Kal Renganathan Sharma


Abstract: Comprehensive expert coverage of nanostructures and potential applications This definitive resource discusses the principles of nanotechnology, focusing on the application of chemical engineering principles in nanotechnology. The book covers carbon nanotubes, molecular machines, quantum dots, nanosensors, supramolecular chemistry, dendrimers, nanocomposites, biomimetic thin films, and the emerging area of nanobiotechnology. More than 20 different nanostructuring techniques are presented with schematics from the patent literature. Nanostructuring Operations in Nanoscale Science and Technology discusses different characterization techniques such as SAXS, WAXS, AFM, STM, SEM, and microwave spectroscopy. Nanoscale effects in time domain in heat conduction are also covered. The book includes more than 300 end-of-chapter exercises to review the material.
