Nanolayer Research: Methodology and Technology for Green Chemistry introduces the topic of nanolayer research and current methodology, from the basics, to specific applications for green science. Each chapter is written by a specialist in their specific research area, offering a deep coverage of the topic. Nanofilms are explained, along with their rapidly emerging applications in electronic devices for smart grids, units for cells, electrodes for batteries, and sensing systems for environmental purposes in applicable subjects. Readers will find this book useful not only as a textbook for basic knowledge, but also as a reference for practical research.

About the Author

Toyoko Imae

Professor Toyoko Imae was born in Japan. She joined the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taiwan, as honorary chair professor in April 2009, immediately after retiring from Keio University, Japan. She is also a professor emeritus of Nagoya University, Japan, since 2006, a visiting professor of Tokyo University of Science, Japan, an Academic Icon professor of University of Malaya, Malaysia, since 2013 and a specially-Appointed Professor of Yamagata University, Japan, since 2015. Her major research areas are the fabrication, functionalization, and physicochemical investigation of nanomaterials, including polymers, carbon materials, inorganic materials, nanoparticles and their nanocomposites, in solutions and at interfaces. Her resent research target is a “Nanoarchitecture and Nanotechnology” towards energy, environmental and biomedical sciences. Prof. Imae has published more than 350 articles including peer-reviewed journal articles, reviews, and book chapters. She also edited three books of Advanced Chemistry of Monolayers at Interfaces: Trends in Methodology and Technology (2007), Neutrons in Soft Matter (2011) and Skin Bioscience: A Molecular Approach (2014). She has been conferred several awards as represented by “Promising Scientist Award of The Society of Japanese Women Scientists” (1999). She also contributes to the academic advancement as typified by a president of Asian Society for Colloid and Surface Science from 2013. Prof. Imae was an executive member of the Council for Science and Technology Policy in Japan and a member of the Science Council of Japan.
