Handbook of Polymer and Ceramic Nanotechnology (Hardback)

£599.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This handbook examines the recent advances in the nanotechnology of polymers and ceramics, which possess outstanding mechanical properties and compatibility given their unique physical and chemical properties caused by the unusually large surface area to volume ratios and high interfacial reactivity. This handbook highlights the various compositions and morphologies of polymer and ceramic nanomaterials that can serve as powerful tools for the diverse applications in areas such as electronics, photonics, shape-memory alloys, biomaterials and biomedical nanomaterials, graphene-based technologies, and textiles and packaging. The handbook addresses safety, economics, green production and sustainability. The book contains a section on functionalization of these molecules, which only increases the possibility of developing even more versatile materials that can be fine-tuned for specific applications.



Filling a gap in the literature, this handbook provides comprehensive coverage of properties, fabrication, characterization, functionalization methods and applications at both experimental and theoretical models scales. Economic, toxicological, regulatory, and environmental concerns regarding applications are also discussed in detail. Special attention is paid to sustainable approaches that reduce costs in terms of chemicals and time consumption. The book covers research trends, challenges, and prospective topics as well.

Dr. Chaudhery Hussain graduated from Chulalongkorn University in Thailand with both the M.S. and the Ph.D. in Environmental Management. Currently, he is an adjunct professor, academic advisor and lab director at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Newark, New Jersey. In addition to his research publications on the applications of nanotechnology in environmental sciences, he has published chapters on sample preparation techniques of nanomaterials and carbon nanomaterials in adsorbent environmental analysis. Several other book chapters are being written on the topics of nanotechnology and the environment. In addition to teaching, his editorial experience includes editorship of the Journal of Chemistry, guest editorship of the ASME Journal of Nanotechnology in Engineering and Medicine, editorship of BOAJ Chemistry and more. He is also editor of the Handbook of Environmental Materials Management, published by Springer. Sabu Thomas, PhD, FRSC, CChem is the Founder Director and Professor of the International and Interuniversity Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at the School of Chemical Sciences of Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala, India. He is known for his work in Polymer Science and Engineering, Nano Materials, Polymer Nanocomposites, Elastomers, Polymer Blends, Interpenetrating Polymer Networks, Polymer Membranes, Green Composites and Nanocomposites, Nanomedicine and Green Nanotechnology. Dr. Thomas's ground-breaking inventions in the fields of polymer nanocomposites, polymer blends, green bionanotechnological and nanobiomedical sciences have made transformative differences in the development of new materials for automotive, space, housing and biomedical fields. He has more than 26,000 citations, has co-edited 53 books, and has an H-index of 77.
