Book Description

This new volume presents a wealth of practical experience and research on new methodologies and important applications in chemical nanotechnology. It also includes small-scale nanotechnology-related projects that have potential applications in several disciplines of chemistry and nanotechnology. In this book, contributions range from new methods to novel applications of existing methods to gain understanding of the material and/or structural behavior of new and advanced systems. Topics cover computational methods in chemical engineering and chemoinformatics, studies of some of physico-chemical properties of several important nanoalloy clusters, the use of 3D reconstruction of nanofibrous membranes, nanotechnology research for green engineering and sustainability, nanofiltration and carbon nanotubes applications in water treatment, and much more.
