9783527320134: Chirality at the Nanoscale: Nanoparticles, Surfaces, Materials and More

The only standard reference in this exciting new field combines the physical, chemical and material science perspectives in a synergic way.
This monograph traces the development of the preparative methods employed to create nanostructures, in addition to the experimental techniques used to characterize them, as well as some of the surprising physical effects. The chapters cover every category of material, from organic to coordination compounds, metals and composites, in zero, one, two and three dimensions. The book also reviews structural, chemical, optical, and other physical properties, finishing with a look at the future for chiral nanosystems.

From the Back Cover:

The left or right-handedness of things -- chirality to the scientist -- surrounds us on Earth. At the sub-microscopic scale, it can have dramatic triumphal or tragic consequences in and around us. Its creation and effects are vital for certain chemical processes, such as catalysis, and physical phenomena, such as switching in displays. Understanding and influencing these processes at the atomic and molecular level -- the nanometer scale -- is essential for their development.

David Amabilino is a tenured scientist at the Materials Science Institute (ICMAB, CISC) near Barcelona, where he is presently the vice-director. He worked as a postdoc on self-assembly of interlocked molecules in Fraser Stoddart's group (then in Birmingham, Engalnd), on porphyrin-containing assemblies in Jean-Pierre Sauvage's group (ULP, Strasbourg) and chiral polymers in Jaume Veciana's group (ICMAB, CSIC) after receiving both BSc (hons.) and PhD from Royal Holloway and Bedford New College (University of London). His current interests include the influence of supramolecular and stereochemical effects on molecular materials, and especially the expression of chirality at the nanoscale and the effects it has on the hierarchical passage of handedness. In research related to this, he is coordinating two projects founded by the European commission.
