Nonconventional Polymer Nanostructures, Bionanoconjugates and Dispersions covers preparation techniques for polymer, composite and metal nanostructures in micellar systems, also discussing the functionalization and characterization of these nanostructures and their interactions between (bio)polymers or polymer nanoparticles, metal nanoparticles, surface active agents, solvents and some selected additives. The book includes recent advances in the applications of functionalized polymer and composite nanoparticles that are conjugated with (bio) aptamers and oligomers. Furthermore, it reviews recent progress in the area of polymer nanoparticles and additives nanoconjugates-based artificial/smart nanostructures, including the collective properties and applications of various polymer-based nanostructures. The book's goal is to provide a platform for researchers working in the fields of colloid chemistry and nano(bio)technology to discuss recent developments on various topics in this exciting area.
