Appeared in Choice on 2006-07-01:
Although this book, like most in nanotechnology, touts the interdisciplinary nature of the field, the subtitle is significant and accurate. Other books may organize topics primarily by techniques of synthesizing materials or the physical properties of nanomaterials; Ozin and Arsenault (both, Univ. of Toronto) describe both materials and methods of synthesis in chemical terms wherever possible. This provides not merely a different descriptive framework, but in many instances detailed molecular-level accounts of nanomaterials that explain their properties. This nanochemical approach seems likely to be of great value to those looking to synthesize new materials with specific properties. The book is generally well written with many descriptions of interesting and potentially useful applications of nanomaterials. Several of these applications are in special chapters on patterning, printing, and colored materials. There are a large number of exceptionally lucid illustrations and extensive chapter references. A colorful standout in the crowded field of books on nanotechnology. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students through professionals. D. Bantz University of Alaska

Review Quotes
A gem in the scientific literature...a beautifully written and richly illustrated book that is unlike any other.Ozin and Arsenault should be congratulated for their groundbreaking book. Reading it will reward students in chemistry and materials science as well as researchers from many different disciplines.
An invaluable reference book for undergraduate and graduate students. As a superb textbook for teaching of materials chemistry and nanotechnology.
"A text that covers all the basic concepts of nanoscale chemistry and materials science, and sets them in their historical context, has been long overdue. But here it is - not just a comprehensive guide to the field, but a recipe book for the future. Nanoengineers, start here!"
Excellent features of the book make it a useful, practical tool for teachers of materials chemistry, to this reviewer's joy.As materials chemistry spreads through every domain of modern chemical research and into all sectors of the industry, chemistry practitioners would do well to find the time to read this seminal book.
I have used your Nanochemistry book as my textbook for agraduate level ChE course introducing material self-assembly. Studentsliked the topic and the book a lot. I followed your book and the courseevaluation is excellent (4.8/5.0). I will teach the same class inSpring'08 semester and will use the same book as the textbook. Thanks forproviding such a great book for the society. - Peng Jiang
Nanochemistry will be an invaluable reference book for undergraduate and graduate students looking for an easy way to educate themselves with the up-to-date advances made in chemical patterning, self-assembly, and nanomaterial synthesis....a superb textbook.
"The book provides a very comprehensive description of various methodologies to fabricate, manipulate and characterize a large arsenal of nanomaterials." "The readability is further improved by a large use of nice pictures and fabrication schemes, often in full colour." "...this book is well suited to be used as a textbook in nanoscience and nanotechnology and as a reference book for nano-researchers, being a very rich encyclopedia on the nanochemistry approaches."

The book succeeds in its goal of presenting concepts useful to create functional solid-state nanostructures that will likely be helpful for applications in several fields of modern science such as electronics, photonics, batteries, solar cells, fuel cells, and chemical storage and release.
This book is well worth buying. It is a kaleidoscopic compendium of the achievements of chemists working with materials scientists and physicists.
"...this second edition is not only highly current and accessible, it is full of insights and ideas.""I highly recommend this book."
...to this wonderful book written....insightful perspective on nanochemistry.Strongly recommend this book (only 39.95 for a hardcover copy!) to every student and researcher on materials chemistry, physics, materials science, engineering and biology.
Well-written and informative introductions to all aspects of the field that have a major chemistry component.This book can be highly recommended to develop and accompany courses for chemistry students

Summaries
Back Cover Copy
The global success of the 1st edition of Nanochemistry, along with exceptionally rapid change in the field, has necessitated the publication of a 2nd edition after only three years. This truly major update highlights the latest breakthroughs using more than eighty new case histories, more problem sets, and more teaching principles.Nanotechnology is touted to begin a new era by bringing us materials that were not available before. This book describes the fascinating chemistry behind nanotechnology in a clear and easy to read style. Aimed at teachers, graduate students and advanced undergraduates it provides an authoritative, rigorous and hype-free guide to this burgeoning field. For those who already have some knowledge of the subject, the book remains invaluable as a reference and source of inspiration for future research or teaching.With a combined total of over forty years teaching and research experience, the authors are leaders in the fields of materials chemistry and nanochemistry. They have chosen to focus on concepts rather than formulas whilst describing all the techniques commonly used to synthesize nanomaterials. Problem sets are used to get students to thinking creatively and laterally about what they have learnt. The questions are designed to draw connections between subjects, fields and topics - of fundamental importance for anyone intending to work in such an interdisciplinary field.Nanochemistry is long but later chapters do not require knowledge of earlier sections so it can be read a little at a time. Reviews of the first edition stated that it is one of the most entertaining books in science, given the many figures, the variety of subjects and the well thought out structure.Suitable for those coming from a physics, biology, medicine, materials science, engineering or chemistry background, the book is ideal for whoever needs a birds-eye view of the field. The extensive bibliography allows the reader to find any level of detail behind each of the subjects. Nowhere else in the literature is it possible to find such a comprehensive and up-to-date look at the chemistry of nanotechnology.
Bowker Data Service Summary
This textbook on nanochemistry adopts an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to the subject. It presents a basic chemical strategy for making nanomaterials and describes some of the principles of materials self-assembly over 'all' scales.
Description for Bookstore
The global success of the 1st edition of Nanochemistry, and exceptionally rapid change in the field, has necessitated the publication of a 2nd edition after only three years. This truly major update highlights the latest breakthroughs using over 80 new case histories, more problem sets, and more teaching principles. Written for teachers and students, the book catapults the reader to the forefront of the field.
