"Knovel launches Nanotechnology collection – 02 Dec 2009
Knovel, an online resource for engineers, has announced the availability of the Nanotechnology collection. The new collection seeks to help engineers expand their knowledge base and build expertise in this rapidly-growing multi-disciplinary area.
The Nanotechnology collection features content from leading publishers including Elsevier, McGraw-Hill, Springer, Smithers Rapra, Royal Society of Chemistry, World Scientific and Wiley. It focusses on nanoscale materials, nanostructure-dependent properties and phenomena data as well as fabrication and manufacturing techniques. Subtopics within the collection include Nanostructures and Micro/Nanodevices; Micro/Nanofabrication and Manufacturing Techniques; Nanobiotechnology; Environmental Nanotechnology and Environmental Safety; and Nanocomposites.
Knovel is an online resource that helps engineers find reliable technical information. Knovel’s reliable content, optimised search and interactive tools, help engineers solve problems faster by providing answers at the point of need, in turn helping organisations increase the productivity of their engineering staff."
