Nanomaterials inevitably have bright prospects, but even now
they play an important role in many areas of industry. Some of
these new materials are commercially available and are used in off
the shelf products, others are important model systems for
physicochemical and materials science research. However, research
findings and application data are not compiled in a single work.
The Springer Handbook of Nanomaterials collects description and
data of materials which have dimensions on the nanoscale. The
description of nanomaterials follows the interplay of structure,
properties, processing and applications mainly in their solid
phase. The chapters were arranged according to the classical
materials-science classifications: carbon materials, metals,
ceramics, composites, and biomaterials. For each part, materials
structures represent different dimensionality; zero-dimensional
clusters, nanoparticles and quantum dots, one-dimensional nanowires
and nanotubes, and two-dimensional thin films and surfaces.
Combinations cover for instance nanostructured and hybrid
Almost 100 leading scientists from academia and the industry
were selected to write the 32 chapters and collect the physical,
chemical and mechanical data. The handbook was written and compiled
for professionals and practitioners, materials scientists,
physicists and chemists at universities, as well as in the fields
of industrial research and production.
The Handbook is organized in seven parts. Part A: NanoCarbons.
Part B: NanoMetals. Part C: NanoCeramics. Part D: NanoComposits.
Part E: Nanoporous Materials. Part F: Organic and Biomaterilas.
Part G: Applications and Impact.
