Series: Advances in Nanotechnology
BISAC: TEC027000

This volume contains eight selected chapters discussing recent advances in nanotechnology research and development. Chapter One discusses the dielectric and microwave absorbing properties of epoxy composites which are comprised of nanocarbon and/or inorganic particles. Chapter Two examines the use of electromagnetic heating enhanced with magnetic nanoparticles to perform cryopreservation of a large volume cell suspension. Chapter Three reviews the current state of the art and perspectives on clay-epoxy nanocomposites. Chapter Four provides an overview of the process to synthesize hematite nanoparticles and an examination of their applications. Chapter Five reviews a process to synthesize nano- and microstructured layers of silver via the photo and thermal destruction of polyvinyl alcohol with silver nitrate. Chapter Six reviews the application of polyvinyl alcohol as a stabilizer for nanoparticles and the formation of nanocomposites. Chapter Seven provides a CUDA-based very fast analysis of sacrificial nanomaterials for epoxy coatings. Chapter Eight is a brief review on copper oxide nanoparticles for catalytic degradation.
