Nanotechnology is the study of the controlling of matter on an atomic and molecular scale and is also very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly. This book gathers and presents data on nanotechnology, including the societal metabolism of nanomaterials; the cytotoxicity of silver nanoparticles; nanotechnology-based photocatalysts; the nanocomposite of montmorillonite and zinc sulphide nanoparticles; the use of carbon nanocoils (CNCs), a helical carbon nanofiber, as a catalyst support in fuel cells; nanocrystallization and in-situ preparation of copper azide; and nanoclays.
