Book Description

This new book, Nanobiotechnology: Concepts and Applications in Health, Agriculture, and Environment, presents a broad conceptual overview regarding the synthesis, applications, and toxicological aspects of nanobiotechnology. It focuses on the entrance into and interaction of nanomaterials in the human body, which has generated intense scientific curiosity, attracting much attention as well as increasing concern from the nanomaterial-based industries and academia across the world.

This book looks at the scientific aspects of nanomaterials used in many applications of biosciences, taking an interdisciplinary approach that encompasses medicine, biology, pharmacy, physics, chemistry, engineering, nanotechnology, and materials science.

The volume covers the basics of nanosciences and nanotechnology; different schemes and routes of synthesis; and various biological applications, including sensing, medicine, drug delivery systems, and remediation. Further, special chapters will be devoted to nanotoxicology and the developing risk factors associated with nanosized particles during use along with the ethical issues related to nanobiotechnology.
