Key Features

  • A route map for the commercialization of nanotechnology research
  • Discusses product design challenges, regulatory issues, and ethical and social implications of nanotechnology
  • Features new case studies on nanotechnology startups in challenging economic times


Applied Nanotechnology takes an integrated approach to the scientific, commercial and social aspects of nanotechnology, exploring:

  • The relationship between nanotechnology and innovation
  • The changing economics and business models required to commercialize innovations in nanotechnology
  • Product design case studies
  • Applications in various sectors, including information technology, composite materials, energy, and agriculture
  • The role of government in promoting nanotechnology
  • The potential future of molecular self-assembly in industrial production

In this 2e, new chapters have been added on energy applications and the role of nanotechnology in sustainability. The section on the safety of nanoproducts has also been updated, and material on funding and commercialization has been updated and expanded, with new case studies illustrating the experience of new startups in a challenging economic environment.

Jeremy Ramsden

Jeremy Ramsden was educated at the Universities of Cambridge and Princeton and the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), where he obtained his doctorate in the Institute of Chemical Physics for research into photocatalytic semiconductor nanoparticles. He was a visiting scientist at the Biocenter (Institute of Biophysics) of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Szeged (1987), after which he worked at the Biocenter (Institute of Biophysical Chemistry) of the University of Basle (member of the Faculty of Natural Philosophy) until being appointed (2002) Professor and Chair of Nanotechnology at Cranfield University in the UK. From 2003-9 he was also Research Director for Nanotechnology at Cranfield University at Kitakyushu in Japan. In 2012 he moved to the University of Buckingham (UK) as Professor of Nanotechnology. His main research focus nowadays is on nanosensors. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (London) and a IUPAC Fellow.
