Nanochemistry and Technology in Science and Engineering

Anthony Michael Granville, PhD
TDK Research Solutions
116 / 207 Barker Street,
Randwick , NSW Australia
Tel: +61 (4) 3215 6345

Apple Academic Press is pleased to announce that Dr. Anthony Granville will be editing a new 5-volume book series on Nanochemistry and Technology in Science and Engineering. Dr. Granville invites contributions.

Each volume will begin with a brief discussion of the fundamentals of nanochemistry and technology as related to the subject matter for the specific volume. This will then tie directly into the research submissions for each of the subject volumes:
• biomedical science and engineering
• optoelectronics and sensor applications
• inorganic compounds and hybrid materials
• graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, and nanodiamonds
• surface modifications and interactions

These volumes will also suggest areas for future research avenues and directions in each field, bringing together the fundamentals of science and the applications of engineering to the field. The book series hopes to both elucidate the area of nanochemistry and technology as well as consolidate the research into focus areas, being of interest to educators and researchers alike. This series will aim to amalgamate chemistry and engineering together to give an equal importance to the science and the applications of the technology and how the two are interlinked—form and function dictating each other. Furthermore, by highlighting recent research into each of the delegated areas, the series can showcase researchers and their work, as well as be a springboard into subseries for each area if the interest level is significant.
