Overview

Authored by a rising star in the field and one of its pioneers, this textbook is ideal for interdisciplinary courses - bridging chemistry, materials science, physics and biology. Adopting a completely new and visionary approach, this is a unique learning tool, focusing on just six concepts crucial for understanding nanochemistry: surface, size, shape, self-assembly, defects and the interface of biology and nanochemistry.
These concepts are elucidated through the analysis of six materials representing the real life application of the nanochemistry concepts. The teaching questions included provide real "food for thought", thus training students to think as a researcher does and so develop problemsolving skills.

Meet the Author

Ludovico Cademartiri studied materials science at the University ofParma, Italy, and chemistry at the University of Toronto, Canada.Currently he is postdoc in the group of George M. Whitesides atHarvard University. His research interests include nanocrystalchemistry,processing and self-assembly, contrast agents, mesoporousmaterials, photonic crystals, quasicrystals and soil science.Despite his young age he has already received two Graduate StudentAwards from the Materials Research Society, the Canada ResearchChair Graduate
Prize in Chemistry, the Canadian Society of Chemistry Prize forGraduate Work in Inorganic Chemistry, the American Chemical SocietyDIC Young Investigator Award and the Governor General Gold Medal, aprize conferred annually to the three most academicallyaccomplished graduate students of the University of Toronto. He isauthor of 16 publications in international journals, he gavenumerous invited lectures and he is coauthor of two textbooks onnanochemistry.

Geoffrey A. Ozin studied chemistry at Kings College University ofLondon and Oriel College University of Oxford. He is Government ofCanada Research Chair in Materials Chemistry and DistinguishedUniversity Professor at the University of Toronto, Canada. He hasmade exceptionally important contributions to the fields ofself-assembly, materials chemistry, biomimetics, photonic crystals,nanochemistry and nanomotors. The significance of his research hasrecently been recognized by Canada's CIC SCI LeSueur MemorialAward, NSERC Inaugural Brockhouse Interdisciplinary Prize 2005,E.W.R. Steacie CSC Award 2002 and CIC Medal 2001, Germany'sAlexander von Humboldt Award 2005, and Britain's RSC MaterialsChemistry Award 2002. He serves on the editorial advisory board ofjournals such as Advanced Materials and Journal of MaterialsChemistry and is an experienced book author. He has published 600articles and obtained 10 US patents. His close ties with industryhave resulted in numerous inventions and technology transfer. He isco-founder of Opalux, a Toronto company commercializing photoniccrystal products that have emerged from his research. The ISIcitation impact of his papers place his research in the top 100 andhe is an ISI Top-Ten Materials Scientist 1996-2006.
