Nanomaterials is the first and unique compilation of the
state-of-the-art review chapters covering all aspects of functional
nanomaterials and their applications. Nanotechnology has led to a
profound paradigm shift after the developments in recent years and
after being classified as one of the most important areas of
impending technology by the U.S. government. Novel functional
nanomaterials are the basis of newly emerging nanotechnologies for
various device applications. This book with 30 chapters reflects the
tremendous world-wide interest in functional nanostructured materials.
The wide variety of topics covered in this book is interesting for
professionals working in the fundamental and applied research. The
book covers major classes of nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes,
carbon and polymer nanofibers, nanoparticles,
nanocomposites, nanosheets, fullerenes, supramolecular and
self-assembled nanostructures, and many other types of
nanomaterials. In addition, this book highlights various
physico-chemical properties of different nanostructures such as
catalytic, dielectric, magnetic, fluorescent and luminescent
properties as well as applications of nanomaterials in sensors,
photonics, drug delivery, proteomics, biomolecular electronics, and
