Industrial Applications of Nanocrystals provides an overview of the properties and industrial applications of nanocrystalline materials. Nanocrystals are a major driver of technology and business in this century and hold the promise of high-performance materials that will significantly affect all aspects of society. Likewise, nanocrystals are driving development and innovation in numerous manufacturing sectors. However, complications keep nanocrystals from making a greater impact on manufacturing. The lack of information as well as the possibility of adverse influences on the environment, human health, safety, and sustainability are still major challenges. This book addresses these challenges for the use of nanomaterials in major manufacturing sectors. The aim of this book is to deliver advances in the use of nanocrystals across various industrial sectors. Chapter topics include approaches to the synthesis and green synthesis of nanocrystals, and the applications of nanocrystals in the pharmaceutical, biomedical, environmental, catalysis, electrochemical energy storage device, and emerging industries.

Key Features
