  • As nanosciences and nanoengineering are considered core technologies for the 21st century and strongly growing fields, the impact of the book can be expected to be very significant.

  • The book contains theoretical and applied contributions in the different fields of nanoelectrochemistry, and hence will be of interest in a large scientific area.

  • The concept of the book should allow using it additionally as an accompanying text book for advanced level undergraduate students in natural sciences of engineering.

  • For industries in the fields of microtechnology or emerging novel technologies, the book represents a compendium of recent developments and contains a toolbox of nanoelectrochemical principles and approaches.

From the reviews:

"The study of nanostructures has required the development of new instrumental techniques such as atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). The present volume describes the uses of such techniques for the study of charged surfaces, including many biological substances, and the transfer of electrons between a nanostructure and an AFM or STM probe. … Each chapter has been written by an expert in one subcategory of electrochemistry of nanostructures. There are no comparable books. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (A. Fry, Choice, Vol. 46 (11), August, 2009)
