Free Atoms, Clusters, and Nanoscale Particles book cover

Free Atoms, Clusters, and Nanoscale Particles

This book presents coherent and systematic coverage of the broad and dynamic field of free atom and cluster atom chemistry. The text provides a comprehensive overview of the current literature and describes the mostimportant experimental techniques developed since 1980 including bimetallic clusters/catalysts, carbon clusters (fullerenes) and trapped single atoms. Metal atoms, clusters, and particles are covered in sequence with the Periodic Table.

Researchers and engineers in chemistry, physics, and materials science.
