Books on the subject of materials and nanochemistry
« on: March 22, 2014, 08:56:24 AM »

Hello.

I don't have any classes on materials or nanochemistry in my degree and I was wondering if anyone knows any textbook as an introduction to these subjects?

Many thanks.

Well that's two different subjects. I've seen a number of introductory books to nanoscience but haven't read through them enough to judge them adequately. Honestly the field is still evolving so fast that it's unlikely any textbook will really do the topic justice at that point. As for materials science, it kind of depends on what you're interested in. That's a broad topic that encompasses polymers, electronic materials, solid state physics, and on and on.

Well, I wanted to know more about using nanoparticles for drug delivery. I'll look for some articles on this, but I have no idea what I should already know about material science to really understand those articles.

I think you are better off searching the review literature for this topic. There are plenty of good options. If you want a few suggestions, I can help.

You don't need too much background on materials science for this. This is pretty much straight-up chemistry.

If you don't mind, then absolutely, thanks.

Well, the good news is that it's easy to find information on this topic. The bad news is that it's almost too easy to find information on this topic. It's such an active area that finding the best reviews and summaries of the field can be a daunting task. It's almost too big to review in a single article (but too fast-moving to make a textbook useful), so most of the reviews you'll find have a narrower scope than just "nanoparticles for drug delivery". Even this search string in SciFinder turns up thousands of hits for reviews. There are whole journals dedicated to drug delivery, much of which is by nanoparticle, including: Journal of Controlled Release, International Journal of Nanomedicine, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, Nanomedicine, Critical Reviews in Therapeutic Drug Carrier Systems.

I haven't been actively involved in this field for a few years, so most of my personal library is out of date. I did a brief search of the literature and here are a few promising general introductions to the topic published within the last year or two. The ones with asterixes are ACS Nano perspective articles, which might be especially useful to you. These are sort of brief state-of-the-science commentaries - a good place for a new investigator to start delving into it.

Be very careful working with nanoparticles.  To my knowledge, they're highly toxic and extremely hard to clean up.
