In this exciting new title all aspects of nanoalloys are explored, including synthesis, characterisation, theory and simulation, property measurements and technological applications. Nanoalloys are of great interest due to their unique structures and properties which are distinct from those of the pure elemental clusters. They are used in a wide range of applications and their chemical and physical properties can be tuned by varying composition, atomic ordering, or clusters. This book will be of interest to academics working at the interfaces between chemistry, materials, physics and nanoscience, and to those working in the nanotechnology, catalysis and optoelectronics areas of industry.
Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2012) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.82.
