Very small particles are able to show astonishing properties. For example, gold atoms can be combined like strings of pearls, while nanoparticles can form one-, two- and three-dimensional layers. These assemblies can be used, for instance, as semiconductors, but other electronic as well as optical properties are possible.
An introduction to the booming field of "nanoworld" or "nanoscience", from fundamental principles to their use in novel applications.
With its clear structure and comprehensive coverage, backed by numerous examples from recent literature, this is a prime reference for chemists and materials scientists working with and developing nanoparticle systems.
A bestselling title in its second edition. A must-have reference for chemists and materials scientists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Günter Schmid, the Editor of 'Nanoparticles', is successful in securing the participation of prominent leading experts; he also excels in integrating the chapters in such a way that there is no disjointedness between the different topics which is a great advantage for the reader."

"...this book is useful for chemists interested in novel methods of wet-chemical nanoparticle synthesis but also for anyone looking for an introduction into the understanding of the electrical, optical and magnetic properties of nanoparticles."
Particle Characterization & Particle Systems

"Biogenetic magnetite provides great inspiration to laboratories active in nanotechnology, as for instance the book by Günther Schmid testifies to."

"With its clear structure and comprehensive coverage, backed by numerous examples from the recent literature, this is a prime reference for chemists and materials scientists working with and developing nanoparticle systems."
Zeitschrift für Kristallographie

"This information resource would be of a great value for graduate students and scientists working with nanoparticle systems."

"...a homogeneous, integrated, well-crafted, and highly readable volume—I strongly recommend that instructors take a serious look at this text—it is also of extraordinary value as a resource for the established researcher..."
Journal of the American Society

"The book succeeds in conveying important developments in the field, as well as providing useful information for solving actual research problems ... it is addressing practitioners in industry, as well as university libraries. I definitely recommend this text."

Meet the Author

Günter Schmid studied chemistry at the University of Munich, did his habilitation in Marburg before he became Professor in Essen. His research focus on the border between chemistry and physics, especially on clusters, colloids and nanoscience. He is author and editor of bestselling books and member in the editorial teams Small and Advanced Functional Materials. In 2003 he got the prestigious Wilhelm-Klemm award of the German Chemical Society.
