Research and Markets now offers a new book titled ‘Nanoscale Multifunctional Materials: Science & Applications’ published by John Wiley and Sons.

The book covers nanoparticles that have larger-scale equivalents, and specially aligned nanomaterials without larger-scale equivalents. It provides detailed information about the versatility of nanomaterials and their unique applications in a wide range of industries and fields.

The comprehensive book is segmented into three sections. Section I is a snapshot covering the scientific phenomena responsible for the unique properties of nanomaterials that differ them from traditional solids and make them as novel materials. It also discusses the impact of nanomaterials on modern society and future trends of their production and applications.

Section II describes the processing and analysis of nanomaterials that include experimental methods in nanomaterial characterization and fabrication and theoretical methods in modeling and simulation. Section III covers the applications of nanomaterials with in-depth illustrations in biomedicine, water treatment, environmental cleanup, thermal management and alternative energy.

Leading nanomaterial specialists have contributed to the content of this book. Each chapter provides a comprehensive review of the latest literature. References provided in each chapter will be helpful for readers to study individual topics in detail. This book describes in detail about the multidisciplinary and multifunctional features of nanomaterials. It is helpful for professionals and students who are interested in studying the characteristics and application of nanomaterials. It also underlies the development of novel nanomaterials and applications.
