Market research solutions provider, Research and Markets has included a new book titled "Complex-shaped Metal Nanoparticles" to its product offering. The book is authored by Tapan K. Sau and Andrey L. Rogach and published by John Wiley and Sons.
Developments in nanoparticles research over the last few years has yielded non-spherical metallic nanoparticles with diverse shapes such as prisms, wires, polyhedral, rods, plates, nanocages and nanoboxes. Nanoparticles of such complex shapes have great application potential in medicine, biochemistry and materials science.
The book covers the fundamental aspects and methods of nanoparticles synthesis and the recent developments in techniques and characterization. It also offers readers an insight into potential applications of the complex shaped nanoparticles. The key topics covered are Colloidal Synthesis of Noble Metal Nanoparticles of Complex Morphologies, Controlling Morphology in Noble Metal Nanoparticles via Templating Approach, Shape-Controlled Synthesis of Metal Nanoparticles of High Surface Energy and Their Applications in Electrocatalysis, Shape-Controlled Synthesis of Copper Nanoparticles, Size- and Shape-Variant Magnetic Metal and Metal Oxide Nanoparticles: Synthesis and Properties, Structural Aspects of Anisotropic Metal Nanoparticle Growth: Experiment and Theory, Colloids, Nanocrystals, and Surface Nanostructures of Uniform Size and Shape: Modeling of Nucleation and Growth in Solution Synthesis, Modeling Nanomorphology in Noble Metal Particles: Thermodynamic Cartography, Platinum and Palladium Nanocrystals: Soft Chemistry Approach to Shape Control from Individual Particles to Their Self-Assembled Superlattices, Ordered and Nonordered Porous Superstructures from Metal Nanoparticles, Localized Surface Plasmons of Multifaceted Metal Nanoparticles, Fluorophore–Metal Nanoparticle Interactions and Their Applications in Biosensing, Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering Using Complex-Shaped Metal Nanostructures, Photothermal Effect of Plasmonic Nanoparticles and Related Bioapplications, Metal Nanoparticles in Biomedical Applications and Anisotropic Nanoparticles for Efficient Thermoelectric Devices.
