Reviews

@qu:The chapters cover a broad range of topics and are well referenced. It very successfully brings together aspects of nanocluster spectoscropy and photophysics and many applications of the nanoclusters and nanocrystalline electrodes. This text is aimed at the graduate student or research scientist wishing to gain familiarity with what has become a rapidly expanding field. ...an excellent overview of the field. @source:Journal of the American Chemical Society
