This book covers a collection of topics that reflect the diversity of modern trends in chemistry and chemical engineering. It presents leading-edge research from some of the brightest and most well known scientists from around the world. Contributions range from new methods to novel applications of existing methods to give readers an understanding of the material and/or structural behavior of new and advanced systems. The book offers a broad scope of new research for academics, researchers, and engineering professionals, which has potential for applications in several disciplines of engineering and science.

Topics include:

  • Time evolution of the electronegativity and its various scales and the interrelationship between electronegativity and other periodic parameters
  • The starch nanocomposite and nanoparticles and its biomedical applications
  • The lamination of nanofiber at different temperatures
  • Electrospinning of chitosan (CHT) and how it can be improved by the addition of synthetic materials including carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
  • Smart nanofibers based on nylon 6,6/polyethylene glycol blend
  • Nano-biocomposites with chitosan matrix and carbon nanotubes (CNTs)
  • Polypyrrole-coated polyacrylonitrile electrospun nanofibers
  • Semi-empirical AM-1 studies on porphyrin, which include global reactivity parameters, local reactivity parameters, and atomic charge

About the Editor

Dr. A. K. Hagh holds a BSc in urban and environmental engineering from the University of North Carolina (USA); an MSc in mechanical engineering from North Carolina A&T State University (USA); a DEA in applied mechanics, acoustics, and materials from the Université de Technologie de Compiègne (France); and a PhD in engineering sciences from the Université de Franche-Comté (France).

He has written about 1000 original articles, 250 monographs, and 170 chapters in 40 volumes. It is apparent from this work that he has made valuable contributions to the theory and practice of chemical engineering, heat and mass transfer, porous media, industrial drying, polymers, nanofibers, and nanocomposites.

Dr. Haghi is Editor-In-Chief of the International Journal of Chemoinformatics and Chemical Engineering and Editor-In-Chief of the Polymers Research Journal. He is an editorial board member for many US and internationally published journals and is also a Senior Editor for Apple Academic Press (US and Canada).

He served as an associate member of the University of Ottawa and was a member of the Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineering.
