Nanoalloys, Second Edition, provides a self-contained reference on the physics and chemistry of nanoscale alloys, dealing with all important aspects that range from the theoretical concepts and the practical synthesis methods to the characterization tools. The book also covers modern applications of nanoalloys in materials science, catalysis or nanomedicine and discusses their possible toxicity.

Key Features

  • Covers fundamentals and applicative aspects of nanoalloys in a balanced presentation, including theoretical and experimental perspectives
  • Describes physical and chemical approaches, synthesis and characterization tools
  • Illustrates the potential benefit of alloying on various applications ranging from materials science to energy production and nanomedicine
  • Updates and adds topics not fully developed at the time of the 1st edition, such as toxicity and energy applications


Researchers in chemistry (catalysis and organometallic chemistry) and biochemistry. Researchers in materials science, physics (electronic and geometric structure, thermodynamics, optics, magnetism)
