Smart Nanocontainers explores the fundamental concepts and emerging applications of nanocontainers in biomedicine, pharmaceuticals and smart materials. In pharmaceuticals, nanocontainers have advantages over their micro-counterparts, including more efficient drug detoxification, higher intracellular uptake, better stability, less side effects and higher biocompatibility with tissue and cells. In materials science, such as coating technology, they help by making coatings smarter, stronger and more durable. This important reference will help anyone who wants to learn more on how nanocontainers are used to provide the controlled release of active agents, including their applications in smart coatings, corrosion, drug delivery, diagnosis, agri-food and gas storage.
- Discusses how the molecular design of nanocarriers can be optimized to increase performance
- Explores how nanocarriers are being used to produce a new generation of active coatings
- Explains how nanocarriers are being used to deliver more effective nanoscale drug delivery

Dr. Trong-On Do is a full professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Laval University, Canada. He received his MSc degree in 1986 and PhD in 1989 from the University of P. and M. Curie (Paris 6, France). After a period at Brunel University (UK) and the French Catalysis Institute (France), he moved to Laval University in 1990. He then spent two years (1997-1999) in the group of Profs. Hashimoto and Fujishima at Kanagawa Academy of Science and Technology under the Japanese STA Fellowship Award before rejoining Laval University as a Professor associated with the NSERC Industrial Chair. He is the author of around 150 publications, 5 patents, ~75 book chapters/review papers. Prof. Do is the recipient of the 2014 Canadian Catalysis Lectureship Award. His research focuses on the design and synthesis of innovative and smart materials and their applications in heterogeneous photocatalysis and renewable energy.
