Description

An Introduction to Green Nanotechnology, Volume 28, provides students, scientists and chemical engineers with an overview of several types of nanostructures, discusses the synthesis and characterization of nanostructures, and provides applications of nanotechnology in daily life. The book offers a foundation to green nanotechnology by explaining why green nanotechnology is important. Covers biological sources in green nanotechnology, antioxidants, green nanostructures, mechanism, synthesis and characterization. The book ends with an evaluation of the risks of nanotechnology in human life and future perspectives.

Key Features

  • Introduces novel sources of plants having a high potential to be used as bio media to synthesize nanostructures
  • Provides phytochemical properties and antioxidant potential, and their effects on stability, morphology and size of green nanostructures
  • Includes a medicinal and technological comparison of green synthesized nanostructures to nano-products from non-green methods
  • Uses accessible language, avoiding complex concepts of mathematics, biology and chemistry

Readership

(Post-)graduate students, scientists in academia and industry, chemical engineers working in the field of (green) nanotechnology
