The Essentials is designed to give a comprehensive introduction to the subject, without assuming any prior knowledge. It begins with a historical introduction to Nano along with a brief review of various experimental tools used to understand nanoscale materials. This is followed by a discussion of selected nanomaterials, ranging from fullerenes and nanotubes to nanoshells. Subsequently several areas of application of nanoscience such as nanosensors and nanobiology are covered. The book concludes with an analysis of the societal implications of nanoscience and technology, partifularly of relevance to developing countries. The complete history of nanoscience and technology, updated till December 2005, with original references and a concise glossary of nano terms are also included
