Intended as a reference for basic and practical knowledge about the synthesis, characterization, and applications of nanotechnology for students, engineers, and researchers, this book focuses on the production of different types of nanomaterials and their applications, particularly • Synthesis of different types of nanomaterials • Characterization of different types of nanomaterials • Applications of different types of nanomaterials, including the nanocomposites

Topics covered in the book include:

  • Synthesis of oxide nanomaterials
  • Shape-controlled synthesis, characterization, and optical properties of silver nanostructures
  • Growth and characterization of metal nano-sized branched structures on insulator substrates by electron-beam-induced deposition
  • Smart biomaterials obtained by biomorphic transformation for the regeneration of load-bearing bones
  • Porous nanotstructure Ti-alloys for hard tissue implant applications
  • Network of sodium hyaluronate with nano-knots junction of poly(amido amine)dendrimer
  • And much more
