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.

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.
