Nanoclusters and Nanocrystals provides coverage on various aspects of nanoclusters and nanocrystals. This book covers topics on recent synthetic strategies to fabricate metallic or semiconducting nanoscale clusters and crystals, nanocrystalline films, control of size and shape of clusters and crystals, growth mechanism, spectroscopic characterization, amorphous and crystalline structures, physical properties and potential industrial applications in transducers and photocatalysis.
