Atomically Precise Nanochemistry
Explore recent progress and developments in atomically precise nanochemistry
Chemists have long been motivated to create atomically precise nanoclusters, not only for addressing some fundamental issues that were not possible to tackle with imprecise nanoparticles, but also to provide new opportunities for applications such as catalysis, optics, and biomedicine. In Atomically Precise Nanochemistry, a team of distinguished researchers delivers a state-of-the-art reference for researchers and industry professionals working in the fields of nanoscience and cluster science, in disciplines ranging from chemistry to physics, biology, materials science, and engineering.
A variety of different nanoclusters are covered, including metal nanoclusters, semiconductor nanoclusters, metal-oxo systems, large-sized organometallic nano-architectures, carbon clusters, and supramolecular architectures. The book contains not only experimental contributions, but also theoretical insights into the atomic and electronic structures, as well as the catalytic mechanisms. The authors explore synthesis, structure, geometry, bonding, and applications of each type of nanocluster.
Perfect for researchers working in nanoscience, nanotechnology, and materials chemistry, Atomically Precise Nanochemistry will also benefit industry professionals in these sectors seeking a practical and up-to-date resource.
