Abstract : In the past few years, nanostructured materials have received a great deal of attention for their unusual solid state properties for structural, magnetic, catalytic, electronic and optical applications. The contents of this special volume comprise the proceedings of a symposium on 'Engineering of Nanostructured Materials' held in Boston, MA, USA during November 28-30, 1994. The papers in this volume present recent advances in the processing of nanocrystals as bulk solid systems, and the tailoring of nanostructured materials for engineering of properties on the nanometer scale. Various issues on grain boundary structure, compositional flexibility, grain and pore size control, as well as surface reactivity of these unique materials are discussed for design of materials characteristics.
