DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 1, 2012 — Research and Markets ( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rfxb2d/complexshaped_met) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Complex-shaped Metal Nanoparticles" to their offering.
The past few years have witnessed the development of non-spherical metal nanoparticles with complex morphologies, such as polyhedra, plates, prisms, rods, wires, nanoboxes, nanocages or dumbbells, that offer tremendous potential in materials science, biochemistry and medicine.
Covering all important aspects and techniques of preparation and characterization of nanoparticles with controlled morphology and architecture, this book provides a sound overview -- from the basics right up to recent developments. Renowned research scientists from all over the world present our existing knowledge of the field, covering theory and modeling, synthesis, characterization and the properties of these novel nanomaterials. By emphasizing the underlying concepts and principles in detail, the book enables researchers to fully recognize and exploit the application potential of complex-shaped nanoparticles, thus laying down the state of the art but also inspiring further research.
Key Topics Covered:
1 Colloidal Synthesis of Noble Metal Nanoparticles of Complex Morphologies
2 Controlling Morphology in Noble Metal Nanoparticles via Templating Approach
