Advances in Smart Nanomaterials and their Applications brings together the latest advances and novel methods in the preparation of smart nanomaterials for cutting-edge applications. The book begins by introducing the fundamental concepts of nanomaterials, including fabrication methods, processing, and application areas. This is followed by individual chapters each focusing on a specific application of smart nanomaterials, across a range of areas, such as agriculture and forestry, food science and packaging, biomedicine, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, energy, wastewater and environment, sensing, and textiles. In each case, possible challenges, recent trends, and potential future developments are addressed in detail. The final chapter of the book discusses various important considerations for the utilization of smart nanomaterials, including environmental safety and legal requirements. This is a valuable resource for researchers and advanced students across the fields of nanotechnology, chemistry, biotechnology, materials science, biomedicine, engineering, and agricultural science, as well as scientists, engineers, and R&D professionals with an interest in smart nanomaterials for a range of industrial applications.
