Chemical engineering

This book is designed to give a comprehensive understanding of the subject, starting from the basics. No prior knowledge is assumed. After giving a historical introduction to the subject, a review of the various experimental tools to understand nanoscale materials is presented. This is followed by specific areas which cover theoretical basis of nanoscale phenomena, advanced nanomaterials, novel properties of materials at this length scale, new applications and societal implications of nanoscience and nanotechnology. A set of experiments designed to give an understanding of the subjects is collected in the appendices. Each of these is written by the best practitioners in the area. While the book captures the expertise of all, care has been taken so that each section is complementary. The material connects fundamentals to advanced research.
