Series: Advances in Nanotechnology
BISAC: TEC027000

Nanotechnology is the study of the controlling of matter on an atomic and molecular scale and is also very diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly. This new book gathers and presents data on nanotechnology, including the mechanochemical synthesis of oxide nanopowders; reactive nano-epoxy with carbon nanofibers for application as a composite matrix; effects of fullerene nanoparticles in the environment; applications of nanotechnology in the food processing industry; nanotechnology for tumor targeted delivery of drugs or genes and ultrafine mesostructured nanomaterials for advanced sensing systems.
