This book comprises  four chapters:

  • Chapter 1 focuses on Nanomaterials characterization. In this chapter various characterization techniques are explained with relevant examples such as Transmission Electron Microscope, Scanning Electron Microscope, XRay Diffraction, Online Monitoring of Nanoparticles, Atomi c Force Micros copy , Zeta-Potential, Thermogravimetric Analysis, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Dynamic Mechanical Analysis, and Scanning Tunneling Microscope. It also explains the various Nano Tensiles Tests and structural characterization of nanomaterials.
  • Chapter 2 focuses on Molecular Nanomechanics which explains the topics such as molecular dynamics, nanomechanics of CNT, Bridging Scale Method, Nanomechanical Biosensors, Nanomechanics of Adhesion Proteins, Nanotribology and Nanomechanics, Nanomechanics in Natural Fibers.
  • Chapter 3 focuses on the Nanomanipulation and Nanolithography. It explains the various nanometer size template fabrication methods with relevant examples. It also discusses the Nano-Electromechanical Systems and catalytic technology. Need of manipulation at nanoscale is discussed in this chapter.
  • Chapter 4 Focuses on Nano Computation. It explains the faceted melt/crystal interfaces and Nanomaterials design for high TC Ferromagnetism. It demonstrates the computer simulation for the interaction of Nanomaterials and multiscale nanocomputation for solidification phenomena.
