About this book


Design and Applications of Nanomaterials for Sensors begins with an introductory contribution by the editors that: gives an overview of the present state of computational and theoretical methods for nanotechnology; outlines hot topics in this field; and points to expected developments in the near future. This general introduction is followed by review chapters by invited experts who have substantially contributed to the recent developments of nanomaterials for sensors.

Guided by molecular and quantum theories, this contributed volume gives a broad picture of the current and past advances that were necessary to develop nanosensors using nanomaterials. To illustrate the important and relevant applications of nanomaterials, Design and Applications of Nanomaterials for Sensors focuses on recent advances that extend the scope of possible applications of the theory, improve the accuracy with respect to experimentation, and reduce the cost of these calculations. This volume also features new applications of theoretical chemistry methods to problems of recent general interest in nanotechnology whereby large computational experiments are now necessary.
