      My book is called: ‘Nanosensors for chemical and biological applications, sensing with nanotubes, nanowires and nanoparticles’

      Part 1 Electrochemical nanosensors: Chemical and biological sensing with carbon nanotubes (CNTs); Electrochemical nanosensors for blood glucose analysis; Nanoparticle modified electrodes for trace metal ion analysis; Interfacing cells with nanostructured electrochemical sensors for enhanced biomedical sensing; Chemiresistor gas sensors using semiconductor metal oxides; Electropolymers for (nano-)imprinted biomimetic biosensors; Nanostructured conducting polymers for electrochemical sensing and biosensing. Part 2 Spectrographic nanosensors: Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) nanoparticle sensors for biochemical and environmental sensing; The use of coated gold nanoparticles in high-performance chemical sensors; Nanoporous silicon biochemical sensors; Semiconductor quantum dots in chemical sensors and biosensors; Nanosensors and other techniques for detecting nanoparticles in the environment.

      I wrote about this as I invited by the publisher. I thought it would be a very interesting topic.
