Presents the latest developments in computational, dry and wet nanotechnology
Offers unique special emphasis on carbon structures, including nanotubes, wires and diamondoids
Useful to a broad range of professionals in academe, industry and governmental labs
Provides a comprehensive resource for current research activities in nanoscience and technology
This book is a result of the research and educational activities of a group of outstanding scientists worldwide who have authored the chapters of this book dealing with the behavior of nanoscale building blocks. It contains a variety of subjects covering computational, dry and wet nanotechnology. The state-of-the-art subject matters presented here provide the reader with the latest developments on ongoing nanoscience and nanotechnology research from the bottom-up approach, which starts with with atoms and molecules as molecular building blocks.
