One Line Description
The 2nd edition of Intelligent Nanomaterials presents a detailed and comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art development of different nanoscale intelligent materials for advanced applications.

Scientists, researchers, students and engineers in materials science/ nanotechnology research, intelligent systems and nanodevices, sensors, carbon nanomaterials, graphenes, nanobiomaterials, advanced biomaterials applications. This book will also be useful for interdisciplinary PhD candidates for developing their fundamental understanding about the subject and will be appropriate for upper and undergraduate level courses on nanomaterials processing, properties and applications.

Apart from the fundamental aspects of fabrication and characterization of nanomaterials, this book covers key advanced principles involved in the utilization of the functionalities presented by nanomaterials in appropriate forms. It is very important to develop and understand the basic principles of how to utilize nanoscale intelligent features in the desired fashion. These unique nanoscopic properties can either be accessed when the nanomaterials are prepared in an appropriate form, for example, as composites, or in an integrated nanodevice form for direct use as electronic sensing devices. In both cases, the nanostructure has to be appropriately prepared, carefully handled, and properly integrated in order to efficiently access their intelligent features.
The book discusses these aspects in three themed sections: Nanomaterials, Fabrication and Biomedical Applications; Nanomaterials for Energy, Electronics, and Biosensing; Smart Nanocomposites, Fabrication, and Applications. The 16 chapters, all written by subject experts, cover the fundamental principles behind the fabrication of different nanomaterials, composites and nanoelectronic devices as well as their applications in targeted drug deliveries, energy harvesting, memory devices electrochemical biosensing and other advanced composite-based biomedical applications.
This eagerly awaited 2nd edition has the following key topics: • Advanced silver and oxide hybrids of catalysts during formaldehyde production • Physico-chemical characterisation and basic research principles of advanced drug delivery nanosystems • Nanoporous alumina as an intelligent nanomaterial for biomedical applications • Nanomaterials: Structural peculiarities, biological effects and some aspects of applications • Biomedical applications of intelligent nanomaterials • Phase change materials as smart nanomaterials for thermal energy storage in buildings • Nanofluids with enhanced heat transfer properties for thermal energy storage • Resistive switching of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes for advanced nanoelectronics devices • Multi-objective design of nanoscale double gate MOSFET devices using surrogate modelling and global optimization • Graphene-based electrochemical biosensors • Carbon fibres-based silica aerogel nanocomposites • Hydrogel-carbon nanotubes composites for protection of egg yolk antibodies.
