Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology

 Editor(s): Professor Waqar Ahmed  Publisher: One Central Press  ISBN (eBook): 9781910086179  Language: English


Nanotechnology is an exciting and accelerating field of activity, which has attracted considerable
attention of scientists, engineers and the general public. However, it is very broad and multidisciplinary and cannot be described comprehensively in a single volume.
This book has been complied into nine chapters covering a range of nanomaterials for applications in energy, membranes and sensors. Each chapter is written by international experts in multidisciplinary research into particular aspects of nanotechnology and nanomaterials.
