Handbook of Functionalized Nanomaterials for Industrial Applications Paperback / softback

Edited by Chaudhery (Department of Chemistry and EVSC, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Mustansar Hussain

Part of the Micro & Nano Technologies series


Functionalized nanomaterials have extremely useful properties, which can outperform their conventional counterparts because of their superior chemical, physical, and mechanical properties and exceptional formability.

They are being used for the development and innovation in a range of industrial sectors.

However, the use of functionalized nanomaterials is still in its infancy in many industrial settings.

Functionalized nanomaterials have the potential to create cheaper and more effective consumer products and industrial processes.

However, they also could have adverse effects on the environment, human health, and safety, and their sustainability is questionable, if used incorrectly.

This book discusses the opportunities and challenges of using functionalized nanomaterials in a variety of major industrial sectors. Handbook of Functionalized Nanomaterials for Industrial Applications provides a concise summary of the major applications of functionalized nanomaterials in industry today.

It covers the enhancements in industrial techniques and processes, due to functionalized nanomaterials, showing how they substantially improve the performance of existing procedures, and how they can deliver exciting consumer products more cheaply.

Emphasis is given to greener approaches, leading to more sustainable products and devices.

The legal, economical, and toxicity aspects of functionalized nanomaterials are also discussed in detail.
