The functionalization of nanomaterials provides them with some unique properties, making the same nanomaterial amenable for various applications by simply manipulating functional components. However, functionalized nanomaterials also face some challenges, along with some encouraging new applications in the future. This book provides a detailed account of applications of the functionalization of nanomaterials.
This book can serve as a reference book for scientific investigators, including doctoral and post-doctoral scholars and undergraduate and graduate students, in context with the scope of applications of functionalized nanomaterials. It also highlights recent advances, challenges, and opportunities in the application of nanomaterials. This book will provide critical and comparative data for nanotechnologists. It may also be beneficial for multidisciplinary researchers, industry personnel, journalists, policy makers, and the common public to understand the scope of functionalized nanomaterials in detail and in depth.
- This book covers various applications of functionalized nanomaterials.
- It discusses recent global research trends and future applications of functionalized nanomaterials.
- It highlights the need for more rigorous regulatory frameworks for the safe use of functionalized nanomaterials.
- It contains contributions from international experts and will be a valuable resource for researchers.
