Book Description

3 Dec 2008 0854041478 978-0854041473
In his celebrated lecture at the APS meeting in 1959, Richard Feynman pondered the potential of miniaturization in the physical sciences and proposed a variety of new nano-tools. Since then, many of these predictions have become reality including the development and application of nanofluidics. This timely book fills a gap in the current reference literature in this exciting and growing field and is dedicated to the field of nanofluidics with a focus on bioanalytical applications. These nanoscale analytical instruments employ micromachined features and are able to manipulate fluid samples with high precision and efficiency. The book is written at a level accessible to experts and non-experts alike and is essential reading for all advanced nanobiotechnology courses within academic institutions.

Product Description


Going with the flowNanofluidics: nanoscience and nanotechnologyJoshua B. Edel and Andrew J. de Mello (Eds.)RSC Publishing, Cambridge, UK, 2009, 198 pp, (HB) ISBN 9780854041473 Reviewed by Sally PeymanThis book is the latest addition to the RSC's Nanoscience and Nanotechnology series dealing specifically with the growing interest in the field of nanofluidics, which involves the flow of fluids through channels fabricated on the nanometre scale.The use of lab-on-a-chip devices in the micrometre scale has already been established and nanofluidics is described within these pages as the natural progression from microfluidics.The content is well balanced and the authors have successfully covered a broad field including motivations for nanofluidic research, fabrication, fundamental physical characteristics of the nanochannel environment, fluid dynamics, and flow behaviour. It also covers the application of nanofluidics to the controlled manipulation and detection o

About the Author

Joshua B. Edel received his PhD in physical chemistry at Imperial College London in 2004. His thesis focused on the development of single molecule detection within microfluidic systems. He then moved to Cornell University for postdoctoral training in nanobiotechnology. In 2005, Dr Edel was awarded a research fellowship at the Rowland Institute, Harvard University to study the structure and interactions of biomolecules in their native cellular environment. In July 2006, he accepted a joint lectureship at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Chemistry, Imperial College London. His current research focuses on the development of nanofluidic devices to further understand biophysical systems at the single molecule level. He has published 22 research articles, 13 conference proceedings, 1 book chapter and has 5 patents and patent applications to his name. Andrew J. deMello received his PhD in molecular photophysics at Imperial College London in 1995. His post-doctoral studies at the University of California, Berkeley focused on the application of microfluidic systems for DNA analysis and resulted in the first demonstration of PCR amplification, separation and detection of DNA on an integrated microchip. He has been on the faculty of the Chemistry Department at Imperial College since 1997 and now holds the Chair of Chemical Nanosciences. His research centres on miniaturized chemical analysis systems and ultra-high sensitivity detection. More generally, studies focus on performing chemistry and biology in pico- to nanoliter volumes, high-efficiency manipulation of small liquid samples and investigating novel phenomena on the micro- and nanoscale. In 2002, he was awarded the SAC Silver Medal by the Royal Society of Chemistry for his contributions to the Analytical Sciences and in 2004 became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
