  • Examines the status of current nano- and biotechnologies and explores challenges for future research
  • Presents recent developments in absorbed films and particle technology
  • Features critical perspectives from the world’s foremost scientific experts
  • Summary

    Despite the widespread growth and acceptance of particulate technology, challenges in the design, operation, and manufacturing of these systems still exists. These critical issues must be resolved so that particle technology may continue to serve as a foundation for new nano and biotechnologies.

    Particulate Systems in Nano- and Biotechnologies presents a summary of the revolutionizing developments that have occurred during the last decade and proposes solutions for overcoming present and future challenges. The world’s foremost scientific experts from European, Australian, Asian, and North American research centers give their critical view of particulate systems and adsorbed films and review the current status of state-of-the-art technologies, such as FloDots, functionalized magnetite nanoparticles, and zero-valent iron nanoparticles for abatement of environmental pollutants.

    A survey of the cutting-edge technologies, this book offers critical perspectives on the synthesis, processing, and characterization of particulate systems for nano- and biotechnology.
