Nanoarchitectonics is a scientific term coined at the National Institute for Materials Science (Japan). It refers to a technology allowing to arrange nanoscale structural units, which are usually a group of atoms or molecules, in an intended configuration. In recent years, nanoarchitechtonics has emerged as a major branch of nanoscience, including in nanomedicine. This book brings together recent applications and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each process, offering international perspectives on the technologies based on these findings. This volume offers new insights for nanoarchitectonics, starting with the currently used methods of synthesis and characterization of such materials, but also the recent biomedical applications.

Authored by a wide range of international scientists, this volume shows how nanoarchitectonics is being used to create more efficient medical treatment solutions. It will be an important research resource for those wishing to learn more about how the emerging topic of nanoarchitectonics is being used in biomedical science today.
