Summary Focusing on both academic questions and applications of self-assembly of this extremely important class of compounds, this book discusses not only the self-organization of inorganic and magnetic nanocrystals, but also their collective optical and magnetic properties, as well as the in-situ fabrication of metal nanoparticles in solid matrices. Professor Marie-Paule Pileni, a distinguished leader in this field, is joined by a select group of expert authors to provide 14 chapters covering important aspects of self-assembled nanomaterials. The result is invaluable reading for inorganic and physica
