The phenomenal success of nanostructures in various applications has led to the exploration of a plethora of novel nanomaterials. Nanoboron is no exception. Boron as material has the ability to form covalently bonded stable networks and finds use in a large variety of applications. This book provides a complete overview of the latest developments in the field of boron nanostructures. It starts with an introductory chapter on the fundamentals of boron chemistry, followed by chapters by experts devoted to discussions on boron nanoclusters, nanosheets, nanotubes, and nanowires, respectively. Applications of boron in nanomedicine are also discussed in wide detail.

Very few titles covering Boron have surfaced to date; however, most of them are introductory text on boron chemistry and its properties along with couple of others covering specialized topics such as uses of boron in steel making, etc. This text provides state-of-the-art knowledge along with recent developments in boron nanostructures through succulent discussions.
