A research project at the Tokyo Institute of Technology - dedicated to fostering innovation in the field of nanomaterials - was selected as one of the 21st Century COE (Center of Excellence) programs. The achievements of this COE program, which builds on the strong tradition of materials science in the Institute, are summarized within this book.

Nanomaterials: Research Towards Applicationsis divided into four main parts:

  1. Revolutionary Oxides
  2. State-of-the-Art Polymers
  3. Nanostructure Design for New Functions
  4. Nanostructure Architecture for Engineering Applications

  • Each section consists of three or four chapters related to inorganic, organic and metallic nanomaterials
