This useful field guide for chemists, biologists and materials scientists is a broad survey of the field which combines contributions from bioorganic and bio-inorganic chemistry, molecular biology, materials science and bioanalytics to fathom the full scope of future developments.
Nanotechnology is the key technology of the 21st century. The possibility to exploit the structures and processes of biomolecules for novel functional materials, biosensors, bioelectronics and medical applications has created the rapidly growing field of nanobiotechnology.
Designed as a broad survey of the field, this book combines contributions from bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, molecular biology, materials science and bioanalytics to fathom the full scope of current and future developments.
It is divided into four main sections:
- Interphase Systems
- Protein-based Nanostructures
- DNA-based Nanostructures
Each chapter describes in detail currently available methods and contains numerous references to the primary literature, making this the perfect “field guide” for chemists, biologists and materials scientists who want to explore the fascinating world of nanobiotechnology.
This second volume on a burgeoning field retains the proven concept of the spectacularly successful first one, extending and supplementing it. Individual sections are each dedicated to nanoparticles, nanostructures and patterns, nanodevices and machines, and nanoanalytics. Essential reading for an entire generation of scientists, this authoritative survey defines one of the most important new scientific fields to have emerged for many decades.
