Self-Assembled Nanostructures (Nanostructure Science and by Jin Zhang, Zhong-lin Wang, Jun Liu, Shaowei Chen, Gang-yu

By Jin Zhang, Zhong-lin Wang, Jun Liu, Shaowei Chen, Gang-yu Liu

Nanostructures check with fabrics that experience correct dimensions at the nanometer size scales and dwell within the mesoscopic regime among remoted atoms and molecules in bulk subject. those fabrics have exact actual homes which are relatively diversified from bulk fabrics. Self-Assembled Nanostructures offers systematic assurance of easy nanomaterials technological know-how together with fabrics meeting and synthesis, characterization, and alertness. appropriate for either newbies and specialists, it balances the chemistry points of nanomaterials with actual rules. It additionally highlights nanomaterial-based architectures together with assembled or self-assembled platforms. jam-packed with in-depth dialogue of significant functions of nano-architectures in addition to power purposes starting from actual to chemical and organic structures, Self-Assembled Nanostructures is the basic reference or textual content for scientists concerned with nanostructures.

Crescent City Rhapsody (Nanotech, Book 3)

Nanotech Quartet [3]

Nominated - Nebula 2000, Nominated - Locus SciFi 2001

Note, this can be a prequel to Queen urban Jazz

This is the way it starts. ..
. .. with the Silence, born of mysterious, space-originated phenomena that render Earth's dominant applied sciences lifeless -- inspiring paranoia and alien invasion fears inside of mystery executive organizations, which, in flip, encourage repressive activities opposed to a perceived enemy populace.

. .. and with homicide, as New Orleans mob boss and voudoun queen, Marie Laveau, dies in a hail of gunfire -- and is remade throughout the wonders of nanotechnology.

In a brand new global that necessity has transfigured -- an exciting, seething stew of microscopic equipment and genetic engineering; of totalinarianism, eco-terrorism and violence -- Marie Laveau's starvation for vengance is giving technique to whatever greater.
For future has named her savior of the outcasts, the opressed, the crazies, the hunted and the Silence's mutant kids, who all flock to her dream of a destiny as candy as an Ellington riff. .. and a secure haven referred to as Crescent urban.

Example text

Examples include carboxylic acid salts and sulfonic acid salts (sulfonates). Zwitterionic surfactants are molecules with head groups containing both a positive group (ammonium) and a negative group (carboxylic or sulfonate). Nonionic surfactants are molecules with neutral head groups, such as polyethylene oxides. 3 shows some commonly encountered cationic, anionic, zwitterions and neutral surfactants. The most important characteristics of the surfactants are the head group charge, the chain length, and the head group size.

This is why a 3D hexagonal structure with close packed spherical micelles instead of the regular 2D hexagonal structure with close packed rod-like micelles (P6m), was formed when the Gemini surfactant was used. 13, co-solvents can also have 30 CHAPTER 2 a significant effect on the packing geometry. While a nonpolar solvent swells the hydrophobic region of the tail groups, a polar solvent can penetrate the regions close to the head groups. As discussed earlier, the swelling of head groups is usually not favorable for formatting high ordered liquid crystalline structures.

Copolymers of NIPAAm containing hydrophobic co-monomers are usually used for negative temperature release134,118 via a skin layer regulated diffusion mechanism. However, intelligent delivery of antipyretics (or antibiotics) that responds to SYNTHETIC SELF-ASSEMBLED MATERIALS: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE 41 a rise in body temperature requires positive thermo-responsive delivery. 135 In this mechanism, drugs loaded into PNIPAAm gels are squeezed out of the polymer when the temperature is raised above, the LCSTs.
