Summary

Smart ceramic materials have attracted researchers’ and scientists’ attention thanks to their potential to achieve better and some unusual material properties by manipulating the length scale at the nanoscale. Smart ceramics have been synthesized to ensure the control of particle size, surface contamination, and degree of agglomeration. The sol-gel route has been utilized mainly for the synthesis of smart ceramics due to its ability to produce a large variety of compositions and ensure homogeneous mixing of the constituent particles at low temperature.

This book describes the innovation in technologies through the development of functionalized ceramic materials for energy, environment, and health care applications. It describes the recent and expected challenges along with potential solutions for advanced techniques for the synthesis and characterization of nanostructure ceramics and their composites: bioceramics, bioactive ceramics, multifunctional nanoceramics, transparent ceramics, nanocore-shells, nanowires, thin films, nanotubes, and nanorods. The applications include environment, health care, electrochemical sensor, high-temperature superconductor, nuclear reactor fuel, electrical insulator, refractory material, electrical transformers, and magnetic core memory. The book will benefit researchers, scientists, engineers, and technologists working in the industry, national/international research laboratories, and academia with interest in traditional and advanced smart ceramic composites and students pursuing their postgraduate, graduate, and undergraduate degrees in smart ceramics, nanomaterials, nanoscience, and engineering.
