Nanoscale science, engineering, and technology—commonly referred to collectively as nanotechnology—is believed by many to offer extraordinary economic and societal benefits. Nanotechnology is generally defined as the ability to create and use materials, devices, and systems with unique properties at the scale of approximately 1 to 100 nm. Nanotechnology offers society the promise of major benefits, but also raises questions of potential adverse effects. The first volume covers pore size in carbon-based nano-adsorbents, resulting in materials that exhibit unique sorptive properties with a general view of the recent activities on the study of pore structure control. The collection of topics in volume 2 reflects the diversity of recent advances in nanoelements formation and interactions in nanosystems with a broad perspective that will be useful for scientists and engineers as the use of nanotechnology in the consumer and industrial sectors is expected to increase significantly in the future. And the third volume discusses important issues and trends related to research strategy in mechanics of carbon nanotubes.

Dr. Haghi has received several grants, consulted for a number of major corporations, and is a frequent speaker to national and international audiences. Since 1983, he served as a professor at several universities. He is currently editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Chemoinformatics and Chemical Engineering and Polymers Research Journal and on the editorial boards of many international journals. He is a member of the Canadian Research and Development Center of Sciences and Cultures (CRDCSC), Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Sabu Thomas, PhD, is a professor of polymer science and engineering at the School of Chemical Sciences and Director of the International and Inter University Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala, India. He received his BSc (1980) in chemistry from the University of Kerala, BTech. (1983) in polymer science and rubber technology from the Cochin University of Science and Technology, and PhD (1987) in polymer engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. The research activities of Professor Thomas include surfaces and interfaces in multiphase polymer blend and composite systems; phase separation in polymer blends; compatibilization of immiscible polymer blends; thermoplastic elastomers; phase transitions in polymers; nanostructured polymer blends; macro-, micro- and nanocomposites; polymer rheology; recycling; reactive extrusion; processing–morphology–property relationships in multiphase polymer systems; double networking of elastomers; natural fibers and green composites; rubber vulcanization; interpenetrating polymer networks; diffusion and transport; and polymer scaffolds for tissue engineering. He has supervised 65 PhD theses, 30 MPhil theses, and 40 masters theses. He has three patents to his credit. He also received the coveted Sukumar Maithy Award for the best polymer researcher in the country for the year 2008. Very recently Professor Thomas received the MRSI and CRSI medals for his excellent work. With over 600 publications to his credit and over 17,500 citations, with an h-index of 67, Dr. Thomas has been ranked fifth in India as one of the most productive scientists.
