Authored by a rising star in the field and one of its pioneers, this textbook is ideal for interdisciplinary courses -- bridging chemistry, materials science, physics and biology. Adopting a completely new and visionary approach, this is a unique learning tool, focusing on just six concepts crucial for understanding nanochemistry: surface, size, shape, self-assembly, defects and the interface of biology and nanochemistry. These concepts are elucidated through the analysis of six materials representing the real life application of the nanochemistry concepts. The teaching questions included provide real "food for thought", thus training students to think as a researcher does and so develop problem-solving skills.

 "...In condensing the massive, diverse, and seemingly unrelated fields of nanochemistry...they [the authors] have once again produced a coherent manual that fully embraces nanochemistry in all its guises, and, in the process, have have created ingenuous ways to connect and relate important concepts in this field.  This book will no doubt become a favorite for teachers who want to introduce students to various concepts and approaches of nanochemistry, and will allow a student to get a clear picture of the entire field of nanochemistry from one source..." - Matthew Rycenga and Prof. Younan Xia, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Washington University, St. Louis (USA)
