International interest in nanoscience research has flourished in recent years, as it becomes an integral part in the development of future technologies. The diverse, interdisciplinary nature of nanoscience means effective communication between disciplines is pivotal in the successful utilization of the science. Nanochemistry: A Chemical Approach to Nanomaterials is the first textbook for teaching nanochemistry and adopts an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to the subject. It presents a basic chemical strategy for making nanomaterials and describes some of the principles of materials self-assembly over 'all' scales. It demonstrates how nanometre and micrometre scale building blocks (with a wide range of shapes, compositions and surface functionalities) can be coerced through chemistry to organize spontaneously into unprecedented structures, which can serve as tailored functional materials. Suggestions of new ways to tackle research problems and speculations on how to think about assembling the future of nanotechnology are given. Primarily designed for teaching, this book will appeal to graduate and advanced undergraduate students. It is well illustrated with graphical representations of the structure and form of nanomaterials and contains problem sets as well as other pedagogical features such as further reading, case studies and a comprehensive bibliography.


I have used your Nanochemistry book as my textbook for agraduate level ChE course introducing material self-assembly. Studentsliked the topic and the book a lot. I followed your book and the courseevaluation is excellent (4.8/5.0). I will teach the same class inSpring'08 semester and will use the same book as the textbook. Thanks forproviding such a great book for the society. - Peng Jiang this wonderful book written....insightful perspective on nanochemistry.Strongly recommend this book (only 39.95 for a hardcover copy!) to every student and researcher on materials chemistry, physics, materials science, engineering and biology.

A gem in the scientific literature...a beautifully written and richly illustrated book that is unlike any other.Ozin and Arsenault should be congratulated for their groundbreaking book. Reading it will reward students in chemistry and materials science as well as researchers from many different disciplines.

Well-written and informative introductions to all aspects of the field that have a major chemistry component.This book can be highly recommended to develop and accompany courses for chemistry students

Nanochemistry will be an invaluable reference book for undergraduate and graduate students looking for an easy way to educate themselves with the up-to-date advances made in chemical patterning, self-assembly, and nanomaterial synthesis....a superb textbook.

An invaluable reference book for undergraduate and graduate students. As a superb textbook for teaching of materials chemistry and nanotechnology.

This book is well worth buying. It is a kaleidoscopic compendium of the achievements of chemists working with materials scientists and physicists.

Excellent features of the book make it a useful, practical tool for teachers of materials chemistry, to this reviewer's joy.As materials chemistry spreads through every domain of modern chemical research and into all sectors of the industry, chemistry practitioners would do well to find the time to read this seminal book.

The book succeeds in its goal of presenting concepts useful to create functional solid-state nanostructures that will likely be helpful for applications in several fields of modern science such as electronics, photonics, batteries, solar cells, fuel cells, and chemical storage and release.

"A text that covers all the basic concepts of nanoscale chemistry and materials science, and sets them in their historical context, has been long overdue. But here it is - not just a comprehensive guide to the field, but a recipe book for the future. Nanoengineers, start here!"
