Fundamentals of Nanoparticles: Classifications, Synthesis Methods, Properties and Characterization explores the nanoparticles and architecture nanostructured materials being used today in a comprehensive, detailed manner. This book focuses primarily on the characterization, properties and synthesis of nanoscale materials.
The book is divided into three major parts. Part one covers nanoparticles formation, self-assembly in the architecture nanostructures, types and classifications of nanoparticles, and signature physical and chemical properties, toxicity and regulations. Part two presents different ways to form nanometer particles, including bottom-up and the top-down approaches, the classical and non-classical theories of nanoparticles formation and self-assembly, surface functionalization and other surface treatments to allow them to a practical use. Part three covers characterization of nanoparticles and nanostructured materials includes the determination size, shape, in addition to the atomic and electronic structures and other important properties.
This is a valuable reference for both materials scientists, chemical and mechanical engineers working in R&D and academia, who want to learn more about how nanoparticles and nanomaterials are characterized and engineered.
- Includes new physical and chemical techniques for the synthesis of nanoparticles and architecture nanostructures as well as an in-depth treatment of their characterization and chemical and physical properties
- Explores the unusual properties of materials that are developed by modifying their shape and composition and by manipulating the arrangement of atoms and molecules
- Explains important techniques for the synthesis, fabrication and the characterization of complex nano-architectures
