    Metallic Nanoparticles for Health and the Environment covers different routes of synthesis for metallic nanoparticles and their process variables. Both the functions and roles of these particles as a drug delivery system and diagnostic agent and other potential theranostic purposes against metabolic disorders, photocatalysis applications, as well as wastewater treatments, are discussed. The book compares the different properties of bulk metallic forms and their nanoparticulated forms. It discusses the mechanisms and impacts of different process variables in different synthesis routes, as well as emerging trends in clinics and so forth.


    • Covers different routes of synthesis to create metallic nanoparticles (MNPs) of different characteristics with reference to bulk forms of metals
    • Describes formulation parameters that have a significant effect on these MNPs including dimensions, morphology, mechanism, surface properties, and other characteristics
    • Discusses different roles and performances of MNPs in photothermal therapy, metabolic disorders, mechanisms in bacterial, fungal, and viral infections, and inflammatory pathways
    • Reviews the potential and emerging roles of different MNPs with site target delivery applications and genetic manipulation purposes
    • Examines the advantages and challenges of these MNPs against remediation of pollutants and toxicants, owing to their superior surface catalytic activities

    This book is aimed at researchers and professionals in nanomaterials, pharmaceuticals, and drug delivery.
