Research into nanoparticles is motivated by the demand for advanced materials having superior mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, electro-optical, magnetic and electromagnetic properties. The present volume represents an integration of solid-state physical and `wet' chemical techniques for nanoparticle synthesis. Topics covered include: biological, physical and chemical approaches to nanoparticle preparation; theories and modelling of nucleation, cluster growth, particle growth in solid and liquid states and at interfaces, characterization of particles prepared by different methods, applications as catalysts and in devices (sensors, electrical/optical and information storage), and future research directions. Audience: Students and researchers in biology, physics and chemistry interested in advanced materials synthesis and characterization.
