Monodispersed Particles, Second Edition, covers all aspects of monodispersed particles, including inorganic and polymer particles and their composites. The book describes their fundamentals, preparation, analyses, and applications, covering both the theoretical approaches and practical applications of surface energy of particles, metal monocrystals, anisotropic growth, monodispersed systems, electrochemical preparation of dispersions, tubular structures, detection and manipulation of biological particles, and photochromics and other light-sensitive particles. This second edition is fully updated and revised, with 130 new pages on recent progress in the field of nanoparticles.
- Covers most of the known uniform particles, including inorganic and polymer particles and their composites
- Includes recent progress in the field of nanoparticles with many new applications
- Features 2000 bibliographic references, providing a comprehensive guide to related study
