Handbook of Magnetic Hybrid Nanoalloys and their Nanocomposites (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This comprehensive reference work satisfies the need for in-depth and multidisciplinary coverage of the current state of the art of magnetic hybrid nanoalloys (MHNAs) and their polymer and ceramic nanocomposites. MHNAs represent one of the most challenging research areas in modern science and technology. These materials are stiff and strong with remarkable electronic, mechanical, electrical, thermal and biocompatible properties, and a high potential for multifunctional applications ranging from industry to medicine. The peer-reviewed literature is already extensive, witnessing rapid progress in experimental and theoretical studies on fundamental properties as well as various advanced applications.

Part 1 covers theory, modelling, and synthesis (growth and alloying mechanisms) of MHNAs. Formation mechanisms of magneto-electric multiferroic materials, magnetic carbon nanotube (CNTs), and perovskite materials, which are a novel class of next-generation multifunctional nanomaterials, are discussed. The second part focuses on characterization techniques for electrical and dielectrical, rheological, biocompatibility, and other properties, as well as applications in the industrial, agricultural, environmental, and biomedical sectors. Finally, life cycle assessment is considered as essential to the development of nanomaterials and nanoproducts from MHNAs. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers, and other professionals in the fields of materials science and engineering, polymer science, surface science, bioengineering, and chemical engineering will find comprehensive and authoritative information for solving fundamental and applied problems in the characterization and use of these multifunctional nanomaterials.

Professor Sabu Thomas is currently Vice Chancellor of Mahatma Gandhi University. He is also a full professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at the School of Chemical Sciences of Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala, India and the Founder Director and Professor of the International and Interuniversity Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Prof. Thomas is an outstanding leader with sustained international acclaims for his work in Nanoscience, Polymer Science and Engineering, Polymer Nanocomposites, Elastomers, Polymer Blends, Interpenetrating Polymer Networks, Polymer Membranes, Green Composites and Nanocomposites, Nanomedicine and Green Nanotechnology. Dr. Thomas' ground breaking inventions in polymer nanocomposites, polymer blends, green bionanotechnological and nano-biomedical sciences, have made transformative differences in the development of new materials for automotive, space, housing and biomedical fields. In collaboration with India's premier tyre company, Apollo Tyres, Professor Thomas's group invented new high performance barrier rubber nanocomposite membranes for inner tubes and inner liners for tyres. Professor Thomas has received a number of national and international awards which include: Fellowship of the Royal Society of Chemistry, London FRSC, Distinguished Professorship from Josef Stefan Institute, Slovenia, MRSI medal, Nano Tech Medal, CRSI medal, Distinguished Faculty Award, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Award for Scientific Excellence - 2016, Mahatma Gandhi University- Award for Outstanding Contribution -Nov. 2016, Lifetime Achievement Award of the Malaysian Polymer Group, Indian Nano Biologists award 2017 and SukumarMaithy Award for the best polymer researcher in the country. He is in the list of most productive researchers in India and holds a position of No.5. Because of the outstanding contributions to the field of Nanoscience and Polymer Science and Engineering, Prof. Thomas has been conferred Honoris Causa (D.Sc) Doctorate by the University of South Brittany, Lorient, France and University of Lorraine, Nancy, France. Very recently, Prof. Thomas has been awarded Senior Fulbright Fellowship to visit 20 Universities in the US and most productive faculty award in the domain Materials Sciences. Very recently he was also awarded with National Education Leadership Award - 2017 for Excellence in Education. Prof. Thomas also won 6th contest of "mega-grants" in the grant competition of the Government of the Russian Federation ( Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation) designed to support research projects implemented under the supervision of the world's leading scientists. He has been honoured with Faculty Research Award of India's brightest minds in the field of academic research in May 2018. Professor Thomas was awarded with Trila - Academician of The Yearin June 2018 acknowledging his contribution to tyre industry. In 2019 Professor Thomas has been selected as a member of Prestigious European Academy of Sciences. Professor Thomas has published over 800 peer reviewed research papers, reviews and book chapters. He has co-edited 127 books published by Royal Society, Wiley, Wood head, Elsevier, CRC Press, Springer, and Nova etc. He is the inventor of 15 patents. The H index of Prof. Thomas is 97 and has more than 44,339 citations. Prof. Thomas has delivered over 350 Plenary/Inaugural and Invited lectures in national/international meetings over 30 countries. Amirsadegh Rezazadeh Nochehdehi is currently an academic staff University of South Africa (UNISA). He is also PhD fellow at the Biomechanics Research Group, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (DMIE), University of South Africa (UNISA), Johannesburg, South Africa. Furthermore, he graduated from Materials and Biomaterials Research Center, Iran (MSc) with degree in Biomedical Engineering - Division of Biomaterials in 2017. He also graduated from Karaj Branch of Islamic Azad University, Iran (BSc) with degree in Materials and Metallurgy Engineering - division of Industrial Metallurgy in 2012. As a research scholar, He has worked in polymer nanocomposites for tissue regeneration applications at International and Inter-University Center for Nano-science and Nano-technology (IIUCNN) in Mahatma Gandhi University (MGU), Kerala, India, in 2018. He also worked in magneto-metallic alloy nanoparticles at Nanotechnology Research Center at University of Zululand, South Africa as visiting research in 2017. In addition, he was quality and safety engineer inspector while worked at Tehran Urban and Suburban Railway Operation Company (TUSROC) for period of 5 years. He is scientific research in Metallurgy and Materials Design, Advanced Materials, Hydrogen Storage Materials, Nano-science and Nano-technology, Nanomedicine, Nanomaterials, Nanocomposites, Magnetic Nanoparticles, Magnetic Nano-Alloys, Magnetic Hyperthermia, Biomedical Science and Engineering, bio-materials, Biomechanics, Mechanics of Tissue, and Regenerative Medicine.
