Reviews

"... provides a unique opportunity for students as well as professionals in academia and industry to learn how to synthesize nanomaterials. Clear and concise directions along with characterization methods provide the reader with a hands-on introduction to the world of nanomaterials. ... This is a great way to learn about many of the modem methods for nanomaterial preparation on a small scale."
-John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, November/December 2015

"... with proper classroom guidance, the experiments described here, coupled with anecdotal examples the author provides on the utility of nanoparticles, could serve as a good basis for a full laboratory course."
-MRS Bulletin, Vol. 40, September 2015

"The laboratory manual is an excellent and timely addition to the resources available to teach undergraduate and postgraduate students working in the nanosciences. Written by an internationally recognized expert in the field, the material is well presented, making nanotechnology accessible to students from a wide range of backgrounds. The scope covers nano-related topics in physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science and includes underlying theory as well as many hands-on experiments that have all been well tested and refined over the years this course was taught by the author. The experiments are underpinned by comprehensive descriptions of nanomaterials and the very important techniques of sample characterization that reveal the full nature of the nano world. The presentation is visually attractive, with excellent illustrations. ... This book is destined to become a much-loved and well-used classic."
-From the Foreword by Professor Gordon M. Parkinson, Curtin University
