    Nanostructured materials are emerging as a new class of materials that exhibit unique microstructures and enhanced mechanical performance. As an outcome of this, these materials have attracted considerable attention in scientific communities all over the world.

    There is continuous research to facilitate product development, thereby improving product quality and reliability in industry. This volume is devoted to novel architectures at the nano-level with an emphasis on new synthesis and characterization methods. Special emphasis is given to new applications of nanostructures and nanocomposites in various fields, such as nano-electronics, energy conversion, catalysis, drug delivery and nano-medicine.

    The chapters are divided into sections focusing on:

    • Nanoparticles Assembly and Nanostructured Materials

    • Nanocomposites Properties

    • Nanostructured Materials for Biomedical Applications

    “A lot of new material that makes it into an interesting read. . .  With so many authors, . . . get very different viewpoints and very different ideas andthoughts. It is the variation that makes the book both a good read and a good buy. . . . The chapters [in Part 2] really open up the idea of what is being done with nanoparticles, but more importantly what are the possibilities of what can be done with them. . . . Overall . . . makes you think and in doing so leads you to consider new ideas and applications of nanocomposites.”
