The first 10-volume set of this encyclopedia proved to be a milestone for the scientific community working in the field of nanotechnology. Given the tremendous success of the first 10-volumes and fast research development in the different fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, it was decided to bring new volumes summarizing emerging nanotechnologies over the past several years. The new 15 volumes contain much longer articles and supplement the best-selling encyclopedia which initially appeared in 2004. The new 15 volumes contain 100% of new state-of-the-art 300 articles organized in an A-Z format, more than 900 contributing authors, 60,000 bibliographic references, 6600 figures, 600 tables and hundreds of equations to provide a complete coverage of advanced research in all nanotechnology related fields such as chemistry, physics, engineering and medical sciences. Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is a landmark reference in the continuously emerging field of nanotechnology containing hundreds of descriptive images/figures/illustrations in color for a better representation like earlier 10-volume set published in 2004. The comprehensive coverage of advanced topics in the new 15 volumes reflects emphasis on emerging nanotechnologies. The most expanded, this classic reference is one of the best books in the world. It is the most comprehensive and unique reference with a very broad and wide-ranging coverage in the field of nanotechnology that establishes this encyclopedia apart from other similar types of titles.
The first edition of the Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, 10-Volume Set, (Edited by H. S. Nalwa, Foreword by Professor Richard E. Smalley, Nobel Prize Laureate, Endorsed by Professor Jean-Marie Lehn, Nobel Prize Laureate) that appeared in 2004 received the "2005 Best Reference Work Award" of the American Society for Engineering Education (USA) and "2005 Outstanding Academic Title" by the CHOICE magazine from the American Library Association (USA). With the addition of new 15 volumes, the entire edition's 25 volumes now contains over 710 review chapters (nearly 300 of which are brand new), contributed by over 2,000 of the world's leading scientists from top-notch academic and industrial institutions worldwide. The 25 volumes of encyclopedia now contains approximately over 700 articles, 150,000 bibliographic citations and thousands of illustrations, figures, tables, and equations covering over 22,000 pages which hundreds of images/figures/illustrations in color. The 25-volume set contains the largest number of state-of-the-art review chapters ever published in the world in the field of nanotechnology. Each chapter is fully cross-referenced, introducing some of the most important nanotechnologies under development today. There is no match for this landmark reference since this encyclopedia covers all research topics reported over the past two decades. It is the most useful reference for all academic and research libraries.
