Noble metal nanoparticles have acquired an enormous scientific and technological interest due to their unique optical properties, which are related to surface plasmon resonances. This peculiar interaction of light with nanometals can be widely tuned through the morphology and the assembly of the nanoparticles, thereby expanding the range of potential applications, from energy and information storage to biomedicine, including novel diagnostic and therapeutic methods.

This book compiles recent developments that serve to clearly illustrate the state-of-the-art in this cutting-edge research field, collected at different types of review articles by the teams of the author at the University of Vigo and CIC biomaGUNE, in Spain, who have made seminal contributions to the use of colloid chemistry methods to understand and tailor the growth of metal particles at the nanoscale. Apart from synthesis, the book also describes in detail the plasmonic properties of the nanomaterials and illustrates some representative applications. This book will appeal to anyone involved in nanotechnology, nanocrystal growth, nanoplasmonics, or surface enhanced spectroscopies.
