Summary

The main aims of this book are to summarize the fundamentals, synthesis methods, properties and applications of nanomaterials, so as to provide readers with a systematic knowledge on nanomaterials. In addition, the book covers most commonly used characterization tools pertaining to nanomaterials. Further, it deals with relevant aspects of nanocomposites which contains dispersion of nano-sized particulates, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in the matrices (polymer, metal and ceramic). It also discusses development of smart nano textiles (intelligent textiles), self-cleaning glass, sensors, actuators, ferro-fluids, and wear resistant nano coatings. Aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students, the key features on this book include:

  • Top-down and bottom-up approaches for the synthesis of nanomaterials included
  • Illustrates sample preparation and basic principle of characterization tools for nanomaterials
  • Explains calculation of ratios of surface area to volume and surface atoms to bulk atoms
  • Reviews synthesis, properties and applications of carbon nanotubes and magnetic nanomaterials
  • Discusses size effect on thermal, mechanical, optical, magnetic and electrical properties
