About this book

Molecular nanotechnology is an emerging technology that allows us to build materials and systems with atomic and molecular precision by manipulating atoms and molecules at very small scales, ultimately at the single molecule scale. Since the properties of materials depend on how their atoms are arranged, the ability to manipulate atoms and molecules at the nano-scale will allow us to create new materials, to improve current materials, and to build systems heretofore only dreamt of. The implications of this technology are great: continued revolutions in computer chip technology, continued revolutions in manufacturing, new and stronger materials, and highly precise medical instruments and treatments.
It is only recently that advances in scanning probe microscopy, biotechnology (mainly protein and genetic engineering), and solution-phase chemistry have been defined as tools to implement the technology. These and other advances in the technologies of physics, chemistry and biology are converging to provide the methodology for a molecular-scale technology. This book provides the professional with an overview of current methodologies in the field, with emphasis on the implementation of current research.

Reviews

"...Provides an intuitive, scientific framework for understanding nanoscale systems. Rietman had organized the book around his precept that "solution-phase chemistry and protein engineering will bootstrap us into the first phase of nanotechnology."... Useful for those who might need a basic introduction to some of the important issues in nanotechnology and the influence of the chemical and biological science on the nanotechnology revolution. Those seeking a qualitative picture of nanoscale systems engineering will find it a useful reference." PHYSICS TODAY, August 2002

PHYSICS TODAY
"…the choice of topics and the order of their presentation appear to be well thought out…the book should be useful to those who might need a basic introduction to some of the important issues in nanotechnology and the influences of the chemical and biological sciences on the nanotechnology revolution…Those seeking a qualitative picture of nanoscale systems engineering will find MOLECULAR ENGINEERING OF NANOSYSTEMS a useful reference.”
