Massimo Marrazzo of Italy-based design firm Biodomotica® has published a new addition to his free e-book on printed flexible electronics. Marrazzo believes that the work of future product designers dealing with flexible electronics will be more akin to fashion and graphic designers, where the focus is on style and concept rather than function.
This book describes some nanowires fabrication by electrodeposition technique and their potential applications. Understanding the design, size dependent properties and working principles of electrodeposited nanowires described here, requires a multidisciplinary background of physics, chemistry, materials science, electrical engineering, or bioengineering.

Emerging Materials Research brings new vision and insight to the field of materials science. Materials Research is constantly evolving and correlations between process, structure, properties and performance which are application specific require expert understanding at the macro-, micro- and nano-scale. Through this journal, editor-in-chief, Professor N. M Ravindra, New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA, invites researchers across science and engineering to identify revolutionary and diverse applications for new and evolving materials.
Originally published in 1986, K. Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation laid the theoretical foundation for the modern field of nanotechnology and articulated the amazing possibilities and dangers associated with engineering at the molecular scale. Unique for both its style and substance, the book is today recognized as the seminal work in nanotechnology and has earned Drexler the title of "Father of Nanotechnology." Engines of Creation 2.0: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology ? Updated and Expanded, is an ebook-only version. In addition to an updated look and feel for the ebook, Engines of Creation 2.0 has been expanded to include the first known lecture on nanotechnology by physicist Richard Feynman, the landmark open letter debate between Dr. Drexler and the late nanotech pioneer and Nobel laureate Dr. Richard Smalley, analysis of the debate by Ray Kurzweil, and a number of new additions by Dr. Drexler, including his advice to aspiring nanotechnologists.
Environmental Nanotechnology, Monitoring and Management is a journal devoted to the publication of peer reviewed original research on environmental nanotechnologies, monitoring studies and management for water, soil , waste and human health samples. Critical review articles, short communications and scientific policy briefs are also welcome. The journal will include all Environmental matrices except air. Nanomaterials were suggested as efficient cost-effective and environmental friendly alternative to existing treatment materials, from the standpoints of both resource conservation and environmental remediation.
Environmental Science: Nano covers the implications of nanoscience and nanotechnology on environmental and human health as well as the sustainable development and use of nanotechnologies. Release, environmental characterisation, translocation, transformation, interactions, isolation, deactivation, uptake, value, addition/removal/remediation and other areas of sustainable nanotechnology will be covered.
The European Journal of Nanomedicine (EJNM) focuses on the spectrum from nano(bio)technological engineering and characterization to clinically translatable innovative prevention, diagnostics, and therapies of major as well as neglected human diseases. Thus, the readership is multidisciplinary, including scientists in chemistry, physics, engineering, pharmacology, molecular biology, biomedicine, and clinicians, addressing recipients in academic, industrial, and regulatory environments, the informed public and policymakers.
The subjects of this journal are seen from international and interdisciplinary perspectives covering areas including (but not limited to): biomaterials including biomimetics and biomineralization; nano materials; polymers and composites; new metallic materials; advanced ceramics; materials modeling and computation; frontier materials synthesis and characterization; novel methods for materials manufacturing; materials performance; materials applications in energy, information and biotechnology.
The discovery of graphene has led to a deluge of international research interest, and this new material in the field of materials science and condensed-matter physics has revealed a cornucopia of new physics and potential applications. This collection gives a roughly review on the recent progress on the synthesis, characterization, properties and applications of graphene, providing useful information for researchers interested in this area.
