The field of nanoscience continues to grow at an impressive rate, with over 10,000 new articles a year contributing to a literature of more than half a million citations. Such a vast landscape of material requires careful searching to discover the most important discoveries. The introduction of the newest Specialist Periodical Report by the Royal Society of Chemistry: Nanoscience, provides a critical and comprehensive assesment of the most recent research and opinion. With contributions from across the globe, this new series ensures readers will be well-versed in the latest research and methodologies. Some chapters will also present a special focus in emerging countries contributing to the field, such as India and China. Anyone practicing in any nano-allied field, or wishing to enter the nano-world will benefit from the comprehensive resource, which will be published annually.

About Author

Professor Paul O'Brien FRS is Professor of Inorganic Materials at the University of Manchester. Processes he pioneered have been widely adopted. His discoveries include substantial improvements in the constitution, stoichiometry and nature of precursors. He has shown how relatively stable compounds can be used to prepare high quality functional materials, and developed improved methods to convert precursors into useful functional products, devising and refining ways by which nanoparticles syntheses can be controlled within the size limits require for device use. Dr P John Thomas is Lecturer of Physical Chemistry at Bangor University. His research is concerned with solid state chemistry including: synthesis and assembly of nanoparticles, charge transport in films of nanocrystals, interfacial phenomena and self-assembly. He is particularly interested in nanocrystalline architectures for energy generation applications. He has authored over 45 papers, a monograph on nanocrystals and contributed to a number of books and reports.
