Source 1: Koprowski, E. J. (2012). Nanotechnology in Medicine : Emerging Applications. [New York,N.Y.] [222 East 46th Street, New York, NY 10017]: Momentum Press.
The source I chose covers nanotechnology and its many applications. Nanotechnology is a very broad and diverse subject to look into due to its many uses ranging from something as minuscule as appetite control to something as major as cancer or immunosuppressant. The author even talks about some of the future applications of nanotechnology as well. Nanotechnology, by Koprowski, Eugene J. is well organized, credible, and very interesting. The information is given in a very neat and well organized bundle, which is very appealing to someone starting to look into nanotechnology research. Also, it even goes a step further and discusses active and inactive systems to the reader so assure that everyone has the basics of nanotechnology down before they even begin to read the work. Credibility is not a worry when it comes to this source due to how recent it was (2012) and the background of the author. The author, Koprowski, Eugene J., is an Emmy-award nominated science, technology, and health journalist. He has been writing for leading global media sites for the last 25 years, and he is still going. The validity has also been checked out thoroughly by Galileo. All in all, this is a wonderful source of information for anyone trying to become and expert in nanotechnology.
This source provides excellent research into the field of nanotechnology. It goes into great detail about specific uses such as cancer, and medication administration, and even goes as far to talk about how nanotechnology would react to the properties of matter on such a small scale. The author states that ,“Nanotechnology deals with structures of less than 100 nanometer (nm). One nm is 1 billionth of a meter.” which helps illustrate just how small of a scale this technology is operating on. The credibility of the authors is shown by the number of other certified works they’ve published together, and they both have doctorate level educations. This source is an extremely useful tool for anyone looking into nanotechnology due to the sheer amount of time and research put into it. It goes into superb detail when describing how things interact on such a small scale, while still summarizing the important parts which is perfect for doing the bulk of the research for my project.
