Engineering of nanophase materials and devices is of vital interest in electronics, semiconductors and optics, catalysis, ceramics and magnetism. Research associated with nanoparticles has widely spread and diffused into every field of scientific research, forming a trend of nanocrystal engineered materials.
Electrochemical methods are widely used for the preparation of nanoparticles and the electrochemical properties of such nanomaterials are most relevant for their applications.
This comprehensive reference work will appeal to advanced graduate students and researchers in the field specialized in electrochemistry, materials physics and materials science.
