Book Description

30 Nov 2008
The global success of the 1st edition of "Nanochemistry", and exceptionally rapid change in the field, has necessitated the publication of a 2nd edition after only three years. This truly major update highlights the latest breakthroughs using over 80 new case histories, more problem sets, and more teaching principles. Written for teachers and students, the book catapults the reader to the forefront of the field. Using simple language, and focusing on the concepts, it covers all chemistry techniques commonly used to synthesize nanomaterials. In this book, case histories enable readers to 'connect the dots' and understand the possibilities ahead whilst problem sets encourage students to think creatively and laterally about what they have learnt. The extensive bibliography will satisfy those hungry for more detail.

Product Description


The central goal of nanotechnology is to make useful materials and devices through assembly and patterning of nanoscale building blocks. In this book, Ozin and Arsenault review the concepts and methods involved in synthesizing nanoscale building blocks with controlled size, shape, structure and composition. They further illustrate many techniques that have been developed to organize and integrate nanoscale building blocks into functional architectures and systems via self-assembly, templating, and lithography. Ozin is a veteran in nanochemistry, who published a widely cited review article on this subject in Advanced Materials (1992, 4, pp. 612-649) more than one decade ago. Written for an interdisciplinary audience, the authors of this book relate the basic concept of recent advances in simple terms with many pictures, few equations and little technical jargon. A series of open-ended questions after each chapter challenges the reader to creatively solve a problem with the concepts just learned. There are pertinent discussions of nanomaterials safety, and even a list of "Nanolab" experiments for the ambitious."

.,."Nanochemistry will be an invaluable reference book for undergraduate and graduate students looking for an easy way to educate themselves with the up-to-date advances made in chemical patterning, self-assembly, and nanomaterial synthesis. It could also serve as a superb textbook for teaching of materials chemistry and nanotechnology... it accomplishes its goal of familiarizing the reader with the nanochemistry of today, and encourages the creative thinking necessary to develop the nanochemistry of tomorrow." (Benjamin Wiley and Prof.Younan Xia, ADVANCED MATERIALS, 2006)

"Nanotechnology is very interdisciplinary. It involves methods borrowed from physics, chemistry and biology, and has ambitions that reach deep into medicine and engineering, to name but a few of the disciplines it spans. With this breadth of the topic comes a communication challenge, because specialists trained in any of these disciplines will have to forgo their specific jargon and make themselves understood by nanoenthusiasts with a different background."

"Following several attempts by physicists and application-oriented people, this appears to be the first textbook of the new nanosciences written from the perspective of chemists. Based on a course he developed at the University of Toronto, Geoffrey Ozin wrote this text with his student, AndrA(c) Arsenault. The result comes lavishly equipped with many full-colour illustrations, some 2000 references, lists of thoughtful questions, and home-made cartoons."

"The bulkiest of the 13 chapters covers one-dimensional nano constructs such as rods, tubes and wires. Other chapters are dedicated to topics such as microspheres, nanoclusters, and printing techniques. Biologically inspired approaches, no matter whether structural or functional, are together in one chapter towards the end. An intriguing miscellany of interesting topics is stowed away in seven appendices. All in all this is a brave effort to capture a very fast-moving young research field and tie it up in a text book format." (Michael Gross, CHEMISTRY WORLD, January 2006)

"Two excellent features of the book make it a useful, practical tool for teachers of materials chemistry, to this reviewer's joy. Ozin emphasizes his close ties withindustry that "resulted in numerous inventions and technology transfer" and this is reflected in the presence of 20 outline experiments at the end of the book; in addition, questions and problems are inserted at the end of each chapter. The book, after all, emerges from a thorough assembly of Ozin's lecture notes at the University of Toronto."

The 2nd edition of Nanochemistry - A Chemical Approach to Nanomaterials" is a comprehensive collection of the state of the art of modern nanotechnology viewed with a chemist's eye. The authors take the reader on an exciting tour of nanochemistry with all its facets and interconnects with neighbouring fields, such as biochemistry, polymer science, classical materials science and solid state chemistry, just to name a few. By presenting hundreds of case studies in a concise, yet entertaining and visionary way, grouped in 13 well-sliced chapters, more than 700 pages packed with the most recent highlights of nanochemistry are covered, supported by catchy and instructive illustrations.
The book is imminently suitable as reference book, teaching guideline (including valuable material for problem sets!) and learning medium alike, appealing to advanced students and researchers interested in the foundations and concepts of this rapidly growing field, or simply attracted by the beauty of nanoscience. Ozin and co-authors have risen to the challenge of creating the first copious opus extracting the essence of modern nanochemistry, which truly excels at its capability to both inform and inspire.

5.0 out of 5 stars - THE NANO BESTSELLER !!!! - 31 Jan 2009
The enlarge 2nd edition (13 chapters on 820 pages) is a beautifully written and richly illustrated book from one of the leading scientist on this field. The 2nd edition is the continuation of the global very successfull 1st edition which is more than only a textbook, I would call
it "THE NANOBIBLE" for Nanotechnology, Nanochemistry and Nanomaterials !!

This book offers you not only knowledge and of course a broad overview about the topic .... if you read it and understand it, you will find out this book is a VISION !! This book will open everybody the door for a fundamental understanding and a insightful perspective on Nanochemistry!! Moreover, nowhere else in the literature you will find such a compre-hensive and up-to-date look for this field. This is the reason why not only undergraduate and graduate students will find it as an invaluable reference book also researchers, engineers and also business people can profit from it.

This book encourge you to think creatively and to use this fascinating book as a reference for your own work. In conclusion, this wonderful book is a must have for everybody which works & study this field or have a broad interdisciplinary material science interest.
