Green Sources in Eco-nanotechnology provides a broad overview on the applicability of nanotechnology and the associated risks of various nanomaterials. The book presents safe, economic and eco-friendly methods and natural sources that prevent or reduce possible risks for the environment and human health. New concepts and principals of clean nanotechnology derived from nature–eco-nanotechnology–are introduced, along with a detailed discussion on the chemical, physical and biological properties of nanomaterials, including their pharmaceutical, medicinal, industrial and economical significance to improve human life and protect natural resources and ecosystems.

Key Features

  • Explains the concepts and principles of eco-nanotechnology
  • Presents a novel view of clean nanotechnology derived from environmental sources
  • Discusses the potential of green sources - such as bio media and bio support - to cost-effectively synthesize nanostructures
  • Supports several UN Sustainable Development Goals


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