Description

Nanostructured materials present exciting opportunities for manipulating structure and properties on the nanometer scale. The ability to engineer novel structures at the molecular level has led to unprecedented opportunities for materials design. T

his new book provides detailed insights into the synthesis and the structure and property relationships of nanostructured materials. Nanostructure Control of Materials covers topics ranging from the special properties resulting from nanodimensionality, the control of molecular assemblies, and nanodimensionality and ionic transport through hydrogen storage in nanostructures materials and nanofabrication.
