about this item
The proposed book contains ten chapters dealing with various aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. First chapter, introduction to nanoscience and nanotechnology gives historical prospective, nanotechnology working in nature, man -made nanomaterial and impact of nanotechnology illustrated with some examples. Chapter two describe general synthetic approaches and strategies while chapter three deals with the characterization of nanomaterial using modern tools and techniques to give basic understanding to the students interested in learning this emerging area. Next four chapters deals with different kinds of nanomaterial such as inorganics, carbon based-, nanocomposites and self-assembled/supramolecular nano structures in terms of their varieties, synthesis, properties etc. In addition, one chapter each is devoted to unique properties with mathematical treatment wherever applicable and the novel applications dealing with information technology, pollution control (environment, water), energy, nanomedicine, healthcare, consumer goods etc. Finally, the last chapter deals with the toxicological and ethical issues associated with nanotechnology.
