Nanomaterials have supported humankind’s advancement, becoming one of the most important industry sectors, and are expected to rise to the top by 2030. However, significant challenges must be overcome, such as the performance and efficiency of the material under different environmental conditions. This book seeks to promote a critical view on using nanomaterials under extreme conditions found in our body, planet, and outer space. Therefore, nanomaterials are covered from multiple points of view, allowing the reader to get an enriching presentation of current knowledge on nanomaterials, limitations, advancements, and applications under extreme conditions.

Manuel Ahumada Escandón is the Center for Applied Nanotechnology Director at Universidad Mayor, Chile. His research interests are related to developing new nanomaterials that can be applied in different fields, with particular attention on biomedicine, together to understand the potential side effects that these materials could have on human health and the environment. He has published several papers on nanotechnology, participated in multiple founded projects, and trained under- and postgraduate students.
María Belén Camarada Uribe obtained her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2012 in the area of electrochemistry. Currently, she is working as Assistant Professor at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Her research interests are related to designing and synthesizing new nanomaterials with potential applications in electrochemical systems, energetic materials, and biomedicine. She merges molecular modeling with experimental evidence to predict and understand phenomena at the atomic scale.
