nanotechnology - the "lego" approach

My review of the book

Self-assembly and nanotechnology systems: Design, characterization, and applications

By Yoon S. Lee

Wiley 2012 ISBN 978-1-118-08759-6

appears in the June issue of Chemistry & Industry.

It is accessible to subscribers / members only, I'm afraid, but here's a snippet:

While the book may be too challenging for many general readers, it may turn out to be a useful resource for training postgraduate students in the field of self-assembly. Everybody who will spend their time creating new types of assembly systems for nanotechnology will need to apply some kind of logical order to this field, so it is at the front line of graduate teaching and research that the book, and more generally, Lee’s systematic approach, will have to prove its worth.
