7. Conclusions and Perspectives (All Authors).
"…a homogeneous, integrated, well-crafted, and highly readable volume…I strongly recommend that instructors take a serious look at this text…it is also of extraordinary value as a resource for the established researcher…" (Journal of the American Society, December 1, 2004)
"This information resource would be of a great value for graduate students and scientists working with nanoparticle systems." (E-STREAMS, November 2004)
