Functional nanostructured materials – microstructure, thermodynamic stability and atomic mobility, by G. Wilde, S. Divinski and H. Rösner Mechanical properties of nanocomposite materials, by A.K. Mukherjee, A.V. Sergueeva, D.M. Hulbert, N.A. Mara Reliability of nanostructured materials, by K.A. Padmanabhan, and S. Balasivanandha Prabu Nanostructured supported catalysts for low temperature fuel cells, by Jong-Sung Yu, Suk Bon Yoon, Baizeng Fang, Minsik Kim and Jung Ho Kim Nanocrystalline solar cells, by G. Hodes and A. Zaban Nanoscale materials for hydrogen and energy storage, by M. Fichtner Materials with structural hierarchy and their optical application, by E. Kumacheva, C. Paquet and A. Paton Interfacial assembly of nanoparticles into higher-order patterned structures, by Lifeng Chi and Xiaodong Chen


This book focuses on functional aspects of nanostructured materials that have a high relevance to immediate applications, such as catalysis, energy harvesting, energy storage, optical properties and surface functionalization via self-assembly. Additionally, there are chapters devoted to massive nanostructured materials and composites and covering basic properties and requirements of this new class of engineering materials. Especially the issues concerning stability, reliability and mechanical performance are mandatory aspects that need to be regarded carefully for any nanostructured engineering material.
