Nanomaterials contain some unique properties as compared to their bulk counterparts. The unique properties are due to chemical nature of material, small size and surface functionalization. The functionalization of nanomaterials also affects their compatibility to environment and living organism. This book provides detail account of nanomaterial functionalization along with brief overview of their application. It focuses on providing critical and comparative data to nanotechnologists and discusses different types of nanomaterials and their varying methodologies of fabrications, latest developments and divergent based on selected functionalized material. 


  • Covers all aspects of Functionalized Nanotechnology
  • Describes the challenges and methods of functionalized nanomaterials synthesis for different applications
  • Discusses the recent findings and cutting-edge global research trends on functionalization of nanomaterials
  • Emphasizes on the products, market, safety and regulatory issues of functionalized nanomaterials
