new and historical books in bioscience and medicine
Nanobiotechnology II: More Concepts and Applications
Chad A. Mirkin (Editor), Christof M. Niemeyer (Editor)
ISBN: 978-3-527-31673-1 - Hardcover - 459 pages - January 2007

This second volume on a burgeoning field retains the proven concept of the spectacularly successful first one, extending and supplementing it. Individual sections are each dedicated to nanoparticles, nanostructures and patterns, nanodevices and machines, and nanoanalytics. Essential reading for an entire generation of scientists, this authoritative survey defines one of the most important new scientific fields to have emerged for many decades.
