Markets, the leading source for international market research and market
data, has announced the addition of the book "Carbon
Nanotubes: Angels or Demons?" to their offering.
The field of C-nanoparticles toxicity is, at present, fragmented and contradictory,
oscillating between enthusiastic raptures and bitter disappointments. This important
book presents an overall, unitary view of the carbon nanoparticle world, in
which both the positive and negative aspects of these recently discovered nanomaterials
are critically described and elucidated.
The book provides an exhaustive account of C-nanotubes toxicity, mechanisms
of toxicity and biocompatibility towards human and animal organisms as well
as the entire biological environment. The detailed description of the physicochemical
properties of these nano-objects will help facilitate discussion on their future
applications in the biomedical field.
This book is unique in its understanding, interpretation and analysis of the
mechanisms related to the physicochemical behavior of C-nanotubes, as it aims
is to let readers be in contact with C-nanoparticles in order for them to take
the many advantages these nanostructures can offer in the aforesaid field. Contributors
include experts in the study of materials biocompatibility and toxicity, mainly
as it concerns Carbon-nanoparticles toxicity.
