Overview

This manageably sized dictionary covers theory, experiment, industrial practice and applications for nanotechnology, colloid, and interface science, as well as much of what is now termed materials science. The comprehensive information is presented in several sections and formats: dictionary of terms, classification tables on colloid and nanomaterial types, and sub-term glossaries for specific phenomena, properties and methods. It offers both newly-coined as well as older terms whose meanings have changed, providing acronyms, synonyms, famous names, selected abbreviations, and cross-references. It also contains a historical overview, units and symbols, and a separate literature section for further reading and following-up on specific topics.
An authoritative reference, vital for unhindered communication and knowledge transfer in this fast-growing and broadly interdisciplinary field.
