Nanotubes & Nanowires
  Nanotubes and Nanowires  
NEW 2nd Edition
C N Ram Rao and A Govindaraj, JNCASR, India

This highly anticipated, fully revised new edition is an up-to-date survey of the research areas of carbon nanotubes, inorganic nanotubes and nanowires including synthesis, characterisation, properties and applications. An ideal resource both for graduates needing an introduction to the field of nanomaterials as well as for professionals and researchers in academia and industry.

Nanostructured Catalysts: Selective Oxidations   Nanostructured Catalysts: Selective Oxidations
Edited by Christian Hess, Eduard-Zintl-Institut für Anorganische Chemie und Physikalische Chemie, Germany | Robert Schlögl, Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Germany

The book gives a comprehensive summary of the existing information on the structural/electronic properties, chemistry and catalytic properties of vanadium and molybdenum containing catalysts. As at least one of these two elements is essential to most partial oxidation catalysts the book is of great interest to advanced students of catalysis and researchers both in academia and industry.
 RSc Books   Biological Interactions with Surface Charge Biomaterials
Edited by Tofail Syed, University of Limerick, Ireland

This book is the first to comprehensively address the complex phenomenon of biological interactions with the surface charge of biomaterials. Academic and graduate students interested in producing a selective biological response at the surface of a given biomaterial will find the detailed coverage of interactions at the nanometre scale useful. Practitioners will also benefit from guidance on how to pre-screen many inappropriate designs of biomedical devices long before any expensive, animal or potentially risky clinical trials.

 Fullerenes   Fullerenes: Principles and Applications
Edited by Fernando Langa De La Puente, Universida de Castilla-La Mancha, Spain | Jean-Francois Nierengarten, CNRS, France

The second edition of this exciting title has been fully updated and revised. New sections cover several new topics including the basic principles for the chemical reactivity of fullerenes, electrochemistry, light induced processes, fullerenes for material sciences, fullerenes and solar cells, biological applications and multifunctional carbon nanotube materials. Written by leading experts in the field the second edition summarises the basic principles of fullerene chemistry but also highlights some of the most remarkable advances that have occurred in recent years. This book will appeal to researchers in both academia and industry.

Forthcoming Titles in 2012 – be the first to know!

Nanostructures for Biosensing: From Sensing Principles to Applications
Raúl Martín Palma, David Allara and Michael Pishko, The Pennsylvania State University, USA

There is an increasing demand for highly sensitive, reliable, rapid and inexpensive biosensors from many diverse fields including medicine, biotechnology, pharmacy, environment, food, and agriculture. This is the first book to provide a coherent approach and update to biosensors based on nanostructured materials. It gives a review of current biosensing devices, together with a review of the physico-chemical properties of nanostructures, functionalization and immobilization techniques, and transducing techniques.  The book provides a descriptive approach and is aimed at a broad readership including researchers, professors, consultants and students from such fields as biology, chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering.

Hardback | ca 300 | ISBN 9780854041978 | March 2012
| £121.99

Nanoporous Gold: From an Ancient Technology to a High-Tech Material
Edited by Jürgen Biener, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, USA | Arne Wittstock, University of Bremen, Germany | Jonah Erlebacher, Johns Hopkins University, USA | Marcus Bäumer, University of Bremen, Germany

The book provides a broad, multi-disciplinary platform to learn more about the properties of nanoporous gold from an inter-disciplinary perspective.  It starts with an introduction and overview of state-of-the-art applications and techniques characterizing this material and its applications. It then covers the progress in research within the last years. The chapters are in-depth overviews written by the world's leading scientists in the particular field. Each chapter covers one technique or application so that the reader can easily target their favoured topic and will get the latest and state-of-the-art information in the field.

Hardback | ca 250 | ISBN 9781849733748 | April 2012

Nanoparticles: Organometallic Based Synthesis, Characterization and Application
Mark Green, King's College London, UK

This is the first and only publication to cover all novel synthetic methods and applications of nanoparticles. It draws together information on specific areas of research that was previously scattered across the literature. The book starts with an introduction to the historical development of nanoparticle synthesis. Subsequent chapters then go on to cover the II-VI system, other semiconducting systems, single source precursors, core/shell materials, and metals. High quality nanocrystals have applications as lasers, LEDs, solar cells, memory devices and biological labels so this book will make essential reading for scientists from a range of backgrounds.

Hardback | ca 200 | ISBN 9780854042265 | May 2012
| £109.99

Nanoparticles in Anti-Microbial Materials: Use and Characterisation
Fiona Regan, James Chapman, Timothy Sullivan, Dublin City University, Ireland

This book describes the most up-to-date research in the area of nanoparticles that show anti-microbial activity. It looks at the types of materials and their applications in the area of environmental science, medical devices and coatings for a range of applications as well as describing the techniques that are being used to characterise the materials and nanoparticles. In addition some techniques that have not been used specifically, but could show promise for characterisation of the materials, are also covered. Nanoparticles in Anit-Microbial Materials deals with a current particularly hot topic and gives academics, researchers and industrialists a reference text to assist them in locating the research literature as well as an overview of techniques and procedures. Undergraduate students in analytical science and material science will also find it valuable.

Hardback | ca 250 | ISBN 9781849731591 | July 2012

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
