Biopolymer Nanostructures for Food Encapsulation Purposes, a volume in the Nanoencapsulation in the Food Industry series, guides readers on how to fabricate and apply nanostructures from different proteins, carbohydrates and chemical sources for food encapsulation purposes. This book covers recent and applied research in all disciplines of bioactive and nutrient delivery. Chapters emphasize original results relating to experimental, theoretical, formulations and/or applications of nano-structured biopolymers.
- Includes updated applications of biopolymer nanostructures from different protein, carbohydrate and chemical sources
- Discloses the current knowledge and potential of biopolymer nanostructures
- Brings the novel applications of biopolymer nanostructures for the development of bioactive delivery systems together
Academics, students, researchers, industrials, and those who are working or interested in various fields of micro/nanoencapsulation of food, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical ingredients particularly in the food and pharmaceutical areas

Prof. Seid Mahdi Jafari received his PhD from the University of Queensland, Australia, in 2006. He has been working on nanoencapsulation of food bioactives for the past 15 years. Now, as a full professor, he is an academic member of GUASNR, Iran. He has published more than 200 papers (h-index=43 and 50, in Scopus and Google Scholar, respectively) in top-ranked international journals and 35 book chapters along with editing 36 books. In Nov. 2015, he was awarded as one of the top 1% world’s scientists by Thomson Reuters (Essential Scientific Indicators) in the field of Biological Sciences. Also in December 2017, he was selected as one of the top national researchers by the Iranian Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology. Recently in Nov. 2018, and Nov. 2019 he was awarded as one of the world’s highly cited researchers by Clarivate Analytics (Web of Science); and top reviewer in the field of agricultural and biological sciences selected by Publons (Sep. 2018, and Sep. 2019).
