This book consists of 14 review chapters that give a comprehensive description of the state-of-the-art of nanomaterials and their use in a broad range of applications, ranging from medicine to sustainable agriculture to functional textiles.
A lecture-based volume, the book is pleasant and contains careful discussions of many topics dealing with the multifaceted aspects of nanomaterials. The book has a highly engaging style and is succinctly written. The target audience includes undergraduate students of engineering and materials science, but anyone concerned with nanotechnology will profit from reading this book.
