This is the second, enlarged and updated edition of our book. Starting from the initial more than 1400 entries of the first edition we arrived now to about 2000 entries. Moreover a large number of the old entries have been extended.The gallery of illustrations is enriched by new figures and new tables are added throughout the book.The presented terms, phenomena, regulations, experimental and theoretical tools are very easy to consult since they are arranged in alphabetical order, with a chapter for each letter. The great majorities of the terms have additional information in the form of notes such as ”First described in: ...”, ”Recognition: ...”, ”More details in: ..”, thus giving a historical retrospectiveof the subject with reference to further sources of extended information, which can be articles, books, review articles, websites. In particular in this second edition we have try, for the overwhelming majority of the items, to find out who was the initiator and when and where the term is born, or has been defined or discussed. We think that all these additional notes are quite useful, since they give the possibility to all the readers to start independently their personal research regarding an adequate argument. Only four years separate this second edition form the first one, nevertheless we have seen a true explosion of researches in nanoscience and developments in nanotechnologies. One measure of the emergence of these fieldsis the growth of the literature dedicated to the new disciplines. Nanoscience and nanotechnology have, in the last years, witnessed not only an explosive growth in the number of relevant and important ”classical” scientific journals, which have devoted, more and more, a consistent part of their published papers to ”nano”-related researches, but also in the number of new journals, which contain the stem ”nano” in their title.
