Elsevier announced the publication of five new books in the area of Nanotechnology.
If you would like to receive a review copy of any of these new books, please reply to me and we will arrange to send you a copy. Our preferred method is an ebook, however if you are unable to use an ebook we can send you a print copy. In that case, please send me your shipping address and phone number.
If you are interested in excerpting any chapters from these books, we can send you the necessary files to do so. I am also happy to send cover images upon request.
Nanotechnology Applications for Clean Water: Solutions for Improving Water Quality, 2nd Edition by Anita Street, Richard Sustich, Jeremiah Duncan, and Nora Savage
Nanotechnology is already having a dramatic impact on improving water quality and the second edition of this book highlights both the challenges and the opportunities for nanotechnology to positively influence this area of environmental protection. It presents detailed information on cutting-edge technologies, current research, and trends that may impact the success and uptake of the applications. Recent advances show that many of the current problems with water quality can be addressed using nanosorbents, nanocatalysts, bioactive nanoparticles, nanostructured catalytic membranes, and nanoparticle enhanced filtration. The book describes these technologies in detail and demonstrates how they can provide clean drinking water in both large scale water treatment plants and in point-of-use systems.
Fundamental Principles of Engineering Nanometrology, 2nd Edition by Richard Leach
This book demystifies the principles and techniques of nanometrology and introduces readers to the standards, equipment, and analytical methods that together unlock the industrial and research potential of nanotechnology. It provides a route map and toolkit for metrologists engaging with the rigor of measurement and data analysis at the nano-scale. The focus on nanometrology in engineering contexts makes it an essential guide for the emerging nanomanufacturing/nanofabrication sector, where measurement and standardization requirements are paramount both in product specification and quality assurance. The second edition includes sections on new technologies in scanning probe and e-beam microscopy, recent developments in interferometry and advances in co-ordinate metrology.
Micro- and Nanoengineering of the Cell Surface by Jeffrey M. Karp and Weian Zhao
This book explores the direct engineering of cell surfaces, enabling materials scientists and chemists to manipulate or augment cell functions and phenotypes. It is accessible for readers across industry, academia, and in clinical settings in multiple disciplines, including materials science, engineering, chemistry, biology, and medicine. Written by leaders in the field, the book covers numerous cell surface engineering methods along with their current and potential applications in cell therapy, tissue engineering, biosensing, and diagnosis. It provides a full coverage of the subject, introducing the fundamentals of cell membrane biology before exploring the key application areas.
Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety: Risks, Regulation, and Management, 2nd Edition by Matthew Hull and Diana Bowman
This book focuses not only on the impact of nanotechnology and the discipline of nanotoxicity, but also explains each of these disciplines through in the context of management requirements and via risk scenarios — providing an overview of regulation, risk management, and exposure. Contributors thoroughly explain environmental health and safety (EHS) issues, financial implications, foreseeable risks, occupational hygiene, and consumer protection. Key new chapters have been included covering eco-toxicity, nanomedicine, informatics, and future threats. New case studies have also been added, including a chapter on the impact of nanosilver on the environment, as well as an assessment of how well lessons have been learned from the past, such as in the case of asbestos.
Integrated Nanophotonic Devices, 2nd Edition by Zeev Zalevsky and Ibrahim Abdulhalim
Nanophotonics is a newly developing and exciting field, with two main areas of interest: imaging/computer vision and data transport. This book explores one of the key technologies emerging within nanophotonics, that of nano-integrated photonic modulation devices and sensors. It introduces the scientific principles of these devices and provides a practical, applications-based approach to recent developments in the design, fabrication and experimentation of integrated photonic modulation circuits. All chapters have been expanded and updated in the second edition to reflect this rapidly advancing field, and an entirely new chapter has been added to cover liquid crystals integrated with nanostructures.
