Book Description :

Nanoparticles are beneficial for greenhouse gas mitigation, optimized solvent utilization in paints, water purification and filtration, pollution detection and remediation, and development of alternative green manufacturing technologies. However, nanoparticle production and utilization raise several toxicity issues. Quantification of the toxicity level of nanoparticles is challenging. It requires a multidisciplinary approach that includes materials science, biology, biocompatibility, and toxicity. Size, surface composition, and crystal structure are the key parameters. Other factors including dispersing medium such as serum, dosimetry, and morphology are also important as are proper risk analysis and communication of the outcome. Like any other new technology, nanoparticles provide positive and negative impacts in key sectors. More studies on societal implications are needed to address numerous issues related to governance, risk, ethics, law, and equity.

Book Description :

Nanoparticles (NPs) are spherical particles with a diameter less than 100nm. They will likely become important building blocks in several industrial sectors in the future. NPs are produced under different compositions, shapes, and structures often dispersed in a medium. NPs are classified according to their composition, properties, fabrication process, or applications. A simple classification could be obtained by dividing NPs into inorganic metals, inorganic semiconductors, inorganic insulators, and, finally, organics including polymers. Other classifications are based on the nature of the manufacturing process (chemical, physical, or biological), synthesis media (gas, liquid, or solid), energy source (sputtering, laser, microwave, convection, and sonochemical), and properties (optical, mechanical, or thermal). Besides increased surface area and reactivity, smaller particles may give rise to numerous improved mechanical, optoelectronic, thermal, and magnetic properties. NPs are often used with a core–shell structure obtained following the synthesis step or a post-synthesis process. In most cases, the value chain of commercial products involving NPs consists of NP production, formulation, integration, and system assembling. Toxicity and environmental issues are considered important issues requiring more R&D and education. In particular, improved life cycle inventory and life cycle analysis for different commercial and pre-commercial NP-based products are needed.

Book Description :

Current nanoparticle technologies are already being used in a few commercial products. Numerous products at the pre-commercial, pilot, and laboratory (or concept) stages have also been reported. These technologies face a number of scientific, engineering, health, and safety challenges. Addressing these challenges requires a closer global collaboration between academia and industry. Furthermore, it is important to set up an open and well-organized database to provide comparisons of different nanoparticle properties and products. This will reduce the level of uncertainty and unpredictability regarding the effects of nanoparticles on health and environment. This database could be a key tool of communication between the general public and other partners.

Book Description :

The term "nanotechnology" is perceived differently by various science experts. Do we need to limit ourselves to the area of nanoparticle materials, which entails the construction of nanostructures from a particular number of atoms? Do we have to include the world of miniaturized products which is mainly dominated by advanced microelectronics with sizes lesser than hundred nanometers? How do we handle the concepts which at first instance seem to be very unique, i.e. the link between surface and volume of the various aggregates and the functionality of macromolecules regulated by different electronic systems?Over the past two decades the scientific community has witnessed significant interest in nanomaterials and nanotechnology with research influences from chemists, physicists, biologists and scientists serving in the medical, textile, agricultural and environmental fields. Variety of inputs from various fields and their harmonizing nature in manufacturing and characterization of products from household objects to space machineries have enriched the basics of nanoparticle technology. This can be conveniently understood as approximately 80 journals have appeared on nanotechnology and thousands of research papers have been published on this subject till date. Almost all nanotechnology based fields, including nanomaterials, Nanoelectronics, Nanomedicine and Nano energy have different applications. Therefore, commercial developments and innovations for all the technologies are significantly different. However, these technologies are deeply associated with each other. It is therefore imperative to focus our studies on interdisciplinary fields to comprehend and apply nanoparticle technology effectively. Taking these fundamental ideas and technologies for our work, this book contains the multidisciplinary concepts of nanotechnology and nanomaterials illustrated on a widest scale possible.Nowadays, a tidal wave of novel products directly associated with nanoparticle technology can be observed in various scientific fields. Therefore, the fundamental ideas will be presented and a brief summary will be explained in Chapter 1. However, it remains a challenging job to understand the compatibility of various domains. A comprehensive knowledge regarding the basic nanofabrication techniques are discussed in Chapter 2. Chapter 3 exploits the electrical and electronic functionalities of nanoparticle materials. The advances in nanotechnology have resulted in the evolution of electronics, telecommunications and information technology, allowing us to combine the discrete fields together. Nanoparticle technology has revolutionized the automotive industry, the use of nanomaterials in automotive applications has been extensively discussed in Chapter 4. Sustainable energy production is a key to survive and thrive in this modern era of technological competition. Nanomaterials have a strong potential to fulfill the energy demands of the domestic and commercial sector by providing cost efficient energy solutions. . Chapter 5 encompasses the fundamental energy materials and their use for production of solar cells, batteries and fuel cells. Nowadays, the use of nanomaterials for development of nanomedicine and biosensors has gained significant importance due to their ability to revolutionize diagnosis and treatment of fatal diseases such as cancer, tumors, etc. Chapter 6 covers the use of advanced nanomaterials and their derivatives in biomedical applications. Apart from nanofabrication, it is also essential to characterize the nanostructures to assess their functional properties. Presently, various characterization techniques are being used to characterize the nanostructures which include Scanning Electron Microscope (for microstructural analysis), X-Ray Diffraction (for detection of crystal structure), X-ray photospectroscopy (for compositional analysis), etc. Most of the common characterization techniques are discussed in Chapter 7. Nanotechnology is a comparatively unexplored field as compared to conventional technologies but it has a potential to revolutionize the future world. However, every technology is prone to dangers and risks and nanotechnology also has some environmental and health concerns. Chapter 8 deals with the impact of nanotechnology and nanomaterials on environment and human health. Nanoscience and nanoparticle technologies are playing a vital role to shape our present and future. However, such a powerful technology also has its consequences. Therefore, it is essential to reap the fruits of nanoparticle technology by using this technology wisely.

Book Description :

Nanoparticle integration remains a very challenging issue for both experimentalists and theoreticians. 1D, 2D, and 3D structures are obtained using a variety of techniques. Depending on the application, nanoparticle-based films are required to be dense, porous, or grainy. Obtaining and controlling nanoparticle assembly is difficult due to contributions from numerous interparticle and nanoparticle substrate forces with relatively similar amplitudes. Besides size distribution and concentration, energy input, temperature, and pressure during deposition are three important parameters used to control film characteristics. Self-assembling monolayer, spray, Langmuir–Blodgett, layer-by-layer, electrophoretic deposition, and evaporation-driven self-assembly are simple and scalable techniques. Depending on the application requirements, numerous other integration methods are available. Templating, dip coating, tape casting, inkjet printing, screen printing, and electrostatic self-assembly have been used in commercial and pre-commercial solutions. The majority of these techniques do not require high capital cost and are quite easily amenable to roll-to-roll processes. Mechanical consolidation techniques are used to produce directly integrated nanoparticle-based material structures.

Book Description :

Dry methods offer several advantages including low financial and environmental impacts. However, the relatively large particle size distribution combined with difficulty in surface functionalization reduces the scope of their applications. The majority of dry methods are based on mechanical and gas-phase processes. Other techniques including cryomelting, laser pyrolysis, reactive plasma arc evaporation, microwave plasma process, epitaxial growth, rapid quenching solidification, ion-beam sputtering, self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, and hydrogen reduction are also discussed. Ball milling is a cost-effective process although it gives rise to a significant number of defects. Improved NP quality over large composition and size ranges is obtained using mechanochemical (also referred to as mechanosynthesis) methods. Inert-gas condensation, combustion flame synthesis, chemical vapor condensation, and aerosol spray pyrolysis allow continuous production of high-quality and cost-effective NPs. Thermal spray and chemical vapor deposition techniques allow directly integrated NP synthesis. Higher quality NPs are obtained using physical vapor synthesis although the cost is relatively higher.

Book Description :

Wet and dry production methods are distinguished depending on whether the synthesis process involves a solvent or not. The majority of dry methods use top-down processes while the majority of wet methods are bottom-up. Numerous scalable wet-based approaches with minimal capital cost are described. Ability to control growth rate, surface composition, and shape are important advantages for wet-based synthesis. However, low yield and large solvent requirement are the main disadvantages. Temperature and pressure are key experimental parameters, allowing control of the final product attributes. Sonochemistry, supercritical fluid, solvothermal, microwave, electrically induced synthesis, spray pyrolysis, emulsion, sol–gel, template synthesis have been used to produce NPs. Other potential low cost and scalable techniques are also described. The majority of these techniques are still at the bench or pilot scale stages. Scalability issues could be addressed using a continuous flow reactor. The development of green processes (bio-based precursors, reduced organic solvent, and toxic chemicals) is important for the sustainability of NP technology. Quality control is a major weakness of current NP productions processes. Several purification and nanometrology methods have also been described.
