The combination of conductive polymer technology with the ability to produce nanofibres will facilitate major new developments in biotechnology and information technology, benefiting such areas as scaffolds for tissue engineering and drug delivery systems; wires, capacitors, transistors and diodes; sensor technology; biohazard protection; and energy transport, conversion and storage. The work on nanofibrous materials presented here is designed, first of all, to instruct scientists in the most advanced methods for the formation of nanofibres and nanotubes. The second section covers the physics and chemistry of nanofibres, while the third deals with computer simulation and modelling. The applications described in section 4 include biomedical applications, nanotube-based devices, electronic applications of nanotubes and nanofibres, nanofluidics, and composites. Finally, the fifth section discusses recent developments in nanomaterials, nanoparticles and nanostructures.

Good old Gutenberg could not have imagined that his revolutionary printing concept which so greatly contributed to dissemination of knowledge and thus today 's wealth, would have been a source of inspiration five hundred years later. Now, it seems intuitive that a simple way to produce a large number of replicates is using a mold to emboss pattern you need, but at the nanoscale nothing is simple: the devil is in the detail. And this book is about the "devil". In the following 17 chapters, the authors-all of them well recognized and active actors in this emerging field-describe the state-of-the-art, today 's technological bottlenecks and the prospects for micro-contact printing and nanoimprint lithography. Many results of this book originate from projects funded by the European Com mission through its "Nanotechnology Information Devices" (NID) initiative. NID was launched with the objective to develop nanoscale devices for the time when the red brick scenario of the ITRS roadmap would be reached. It became soon clear however, that there was no point to investigate only alternative devices to CMOS, but what was really needed was an integrated approach that took into account more facets of this difficult undertaking. Technologically speaking , this meant to have a coherent strategy to develop novel devices, nanofabrication tools and circuit & system architectures at the same time.

Cells can be funny. Try to grow them with a slightly wrong recipe, and they turn over and die. But hit them with an electric field strong enough to knock over a horse, and they do enough things to justify international meetings, to fill a sizable book, and to lead one to speak of an entirely new technology for cell manipulation. The very improbability of these events not only raises questions about why things happen but also leads to a long list of practical systems in which the application of strong electric fields might enable the merger of cell contents or the introduction of alien but vital material. Inevitably, the basic questions and the practical applications will not keep in step. The questions are intrinsically tough. It is hard enough to analyze the action of the relatively weak fields that rotate or align cells, but it is nearly impossible to predict responses to the cell-shredding bursts of electricity that cause them to fuse or to open up to very large molecular assemblies. Even so, theoretical studies and systematic examination of model systems have produced some creditable results, ideas which should ultimately provide hints of what to try next.

For decades, the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics has provided scientific and engineering communities around the world with the broad range of current and critically evaluated data required by their constantly and rapidly evolving technical fields. Over the past ten years, revisions to the Handbook have kept up with semiconductors and high-temperature superconductors; addressed environmental concerns by providing data on pollutants, contaminants, global warming, and ground water contamination; and revised pertinent data to stay up-to-date with IUPAC standards. The Handbook's Editorial Advisory Board, comprised of world-renowned experts, plays a crucial role in ensuring that the Handbook adequately addresses the needs of their respective fields and that the data are absolutely up-to-date. One of the highlights of the 76th Edition of the Handbook is a completely revised table of Physical Constants of Inorganic Compounds. The 2,382 compounds in this table were selected on the basis of their laboratory, industrial, and environmental importance, as well as their value in illustrating trends in the variation of physical properties with position in the periodic table. An effort has been made to cover the most frequently encountered inorganic substances, including different crystalline modifications. Many compounds of current interest, such as buckminsterfullerenes, are included, as well as those compounds that have important technological applications because of their optical or electrical properties. Data have been carefully selected and verified by checking against the most reliable sources, and major references are listed. The arrangement of compounds in the Table by common name permits easy location of entries. Information for each compound includes synonyms, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry Number, molecular weight, relevant physical properties (for example, crystal structure and color), solubility, and melting and boiling points. For each compound, cross-references to other tables in the Handbook in which that compound appears are provided. This cross-referencing provides the reader with other relevant information on the compound, including heats of formation, vaporization, and fusion; entropy; heat capacity; critical temperature and pressure; vapor pressure; and optical properties.
