RSC Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Series

The possible uses of nanotechnology span many fields from energy to health; as a result there is a wealth of scientific nanoscience research taking place all over the world.

When there's so much information available on the topic it can be difficult to get a complete overview of the latest developments. The RSC Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Series provides a comprehensive resource of books covering key topics in nanoscience including the characterisation, performance and properties of nanostructured materials and technologies and their applications.

Keep informed and up-to-date with the RSC Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Series.
