Nanosensors and nanorobots are not science fiction but part of nanomedicine, the newest direction in medicine. After touring medical history and defining molecular nanotechnology as the atomic-level control of molecular structures to create precisely targeted medical procedures, Freitas (Institute for Molecular Manufacturing, Palo Alto, CA) details such topics as molecular transport and device applications but leaves ethical debates to others. Appends data on nanodevice design, and human blood and cell types; and a 36-page glossary. Part of a three-volume work, due to be available online.

A medium-sized reference work designed to fill the gap between the smaller and less informative works on organic chemistry of the text-book style and existing multi-volume series which are published in parts over long periods. The contents reflect what are judged to be truly important facets of modern organic chemistry. Emphasis has been given throughout to the properties and reactions of all the important classes of organic compounds, including the remarkable array of different compounds prepared by synthesis as well as natural products created by biosynthesis. The information is presented in a concise and logical manner with mechanistic organic chemistry being adopted to provide a constant and correlative theme.
