Summary The manipulation of molecules is an active area of research with applications in chemistry, biology, physics, engineering, and polymer science. This book provides a comprehensive review of single molecule manipulation with atomic force microscopy (AFM). The text demonstrates that AFMs are capable of meeting the three main challenges in molecular manufacturing: manipulating and positioning each atom or molecule in the right place, making the atom or molecule form certain bonds, and achieving high-throughput fabrication. New and experienced researchers will find a wealth of information in this informative volume which demonstrates the potential of AFMs beyond imaging-- Provided by publisher
