About the book

During the last years nanomaterials have attracted the attention of the scientific community due to their extraordinary and unique properties. Their small size, and distinctive features that come with it, make these materials very attractive for their use in different important fields like biomedicine, sensors or catalysis. One of the most important properties of these materials come from their interaction with light and is called surface plasmon resonance. It is a phenomena happening in the surface of certain nanomaterials that confer them with unique properties. This remarkable characteristic has opened a whole new field called nanoplasmonic that is acquiring more and more importance among the scientific community and it is starting to revolutionise the science fields where they perform. This book aims to review the state of the art in this new field of nanoplasmonics and provide the reader with a wide overview of the new nanomaterials available and their current and future applications.

Carlos J. Bueno-Alejo

University of Zaragoza

Dr. Bueno-Alejo graduated in chemistry in 2003 at the University of Cadiz. After that he went to Yale University as an exchange research student, until 2005, where he worked in the group of Professor Juan Fernandez De la Mora. He then moved to Valencia (Spain) where he got the PhD in organic pharmaceutical chemistry in 2009 at the Polytechnic University of Valencia under the supervision of Professors M.A. Miranda and M. C. Jimenez. After the Ph.D. he has been working as a postdoctoral fellow in several places like the group of Professor Juan C. Scaiano in University of Ottawa or the group of Professor Silvia Costa at the Centro de Química Estructural in Instituto Técnico de Lisboa. In 2014 he arrived to work in a group of Professor Jesus Santamaria at the University of Zaragoza.
