(Nanowerk News) Here are some interesting books on nanotechnology topics that just got published:
Nanotechnology and Nanoelectronics provides a good understanding of the Surface to volume ratio and its effects in the properties associated with nanostructures.

Quantum Mechanics being a fundamental aspect related to nanoelectronics, the text books provides enough material for the same. The difference between classical and quantum mechanical theories are also explained in a lucid manner. Since tunnelling is the concept to be understood well, one full chapter is dedicated to this. It is dealt by having examples in different potential barrier problems.

The transport Phenomenon in Nanostructures and the fundamental building block of nanoelectronic devices-Single-Electron Transistor is dealt in detail. The mathematical modelling will help readers understand and run their own simulation programs.

In Nanotechnology for Sustainable Water Resources, the authors have summarized recent progresses due to novel nanomaterials for sustainable water resources.

The book provides a summary of the state of the art knowledge to scientists, engineers and policy makers, about recent developments due to nanotechnology for sustainable water resources arena. The advances in sustainable water resources technologies in the context of modern society’s interests will be considered preferably which allow to identify grand challenges and directions for future research.

The book contributors have been selected from all over the world and the essential functions of the nanotechnologies have presented rather than their anticipated applications.

Moreover, up to date knowledge on economy, toxicity and regulation related to nanotechnology are presented in detail. In the end, role of nanotechnology for green and sustainable future has also been briefly debated.

Thorough and up-to-date, Chiral Nanomaterials: Preparation, Properties and Applications, presents recent developments in this exciting research field. To begin with, the text covers the fabrication of chiral nanomaterials via various synthesis methods, including electron beam lithography, ion beam etching, chemical synthesis and biological DNA directed assembly. This is followed by the relevant theory and reaction mechanisms, with a discussion of the characterization of chiral nanomaterials according to the optical properties of metal nanoparticles, semiconductor nanocrystals, and nanoclusters. The whole is rounded off by a summary of applications in the field of catalysis, sensors, and biomedicine.

With its comprehensive yet concise coverage of the whole spectrum of research, this is invaluable reading for senior researchers and entrants to the field of nanoscience and materials science.

The discovery of antibiotics ushered in an era of activity aimed at eradicating and curing diseases. Now, the field of nanotechnology has opened up avenues of research promising cures for several morbid conditions. The use of nanotechnology also offers several drug delivery systems to target diseased tissue over healthy cells.

The field also has seen the employment of nanoparticles in the field of diagnostics offering advantages over traditional diagnosis of diseases. Nanotechnology also offers visualization of cells or specific molecules.

Nanotechnology and Human Health seeks to encompass the various principles and techniques used in the field of nanotechnology, their employment in the treatment, diagnosis of diseases and various challenges that need to be addressed. The authors hope to reach across to the readers to assuage their interest in this ‘nano’ field, presented concisely in this single book.
