Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites : Synthesis, Properties, Characterization Techniques, and Applications Hardback


The main aims of this book are to summarize the fundamentals, synthesis methods, properties and applications of nanomaterials, so as to provide readers with a systematic knowledge on nanomaterials.

In addition, the book covers most commonly used characterization tools pertaining to nanomaterials.

Further, it deals with relevant aspects of nanocomposites which contains dispersion of nano-sized particulates, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in the matrices (polymer, metal and ceramic).

It also discusses development of smart nano textiles (intelligent textiles), self-cleaning glass, sensors, actuators, ferro-fluids, and wear resistant nano coatings.

Aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students, the key features on this book include:Top-down and bottom-up approaches for the synthesis of nanomaterials includedIllustrates sample preparation and basic principle of characterization tools for nanomaterialsExplains calculation of ratios of surface area to volume and surface atoms to bulk atomsReviews synthesis, properties and applications of carbon nanotubes and magnetic nanomaterialsDiscusses size effect on thermal, mechanical, optical, magnetic and electrical properties
