ISBN: 1-58883-181-7

The book cover a wide range of research topics focused on applications of nanomaterials. The book is organized according to testing methods, preparation techniques of various nanostructures, followed by nanomaterials for biomedicine, drug release, ophthalmology, dentistry, theranostics, homeopathy, battery and solar cells. The topics include scanning probe microscopy (SPM) related to quan- titative mechanical and electrical interrogation of materials at the nanoscale. CMOS organic electronics, fabrication of nonlinear optical films, synthesis of nanostructured TiO2 material showing photocatalytic activity for pollutant removal, fabrication and applications of biosensors based on nanomaterials, structural and optical properties of nanodiamonds, biomedical applications of functionalized carbon nanotubes, theranostic applications of carbon nanotubes include biosensors such as field- effect transistor platform, targeted photothermal therapeutics, neurological diagnostics and scaffolding, and drug delivery, biomedical applications of magnetic nanoparticles, hyperthermia for cancer treatment, and MRI, polymer based nanoformulations to encapsulate poorly water soluble anticancer agents and release them at cancer sites in a controlled manner, use of multifunctional nanoparticles for ocular drug delivery using polymer nanoparticles and dendrimers, applications of nanomaterials in dental treatment, nanoparticles for the Ayurvedic drug in homeopathy, large-scale production of nanoscaled cathode and anode materials for high performance Lithium ion batteries, and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). The book is written by leading experts and is a valuable reference in the field of nanotechnology. The book contains sixteen state-of-the-art review chapters.
