ABOUT THIS BOOK
The first volume titled "Nanoparticles: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications" edited by Ramesh Chaughule and R. V. Ramanujan and the second volume titled "Applications of Nanomaterials" edited by Ramesh Chaughule and S. C. Watawe both published by American Scientific Publishers. This third volume in this series addresses a variety of techniques in catalysis with the emphasis on green chemistry, methods in achieving best energy efficiencies and formulation and characterization properties of nanoparticulate drug delivery systems using nanoparticles. This book covers three important research topics namely catalysis, energy and drug delivery. The book contains fourteen review chapters organized according to the applications of nanoparticles; six chapters are devoted to applications of nanoscale catalysis, three chapters on focused on energy aspects and four chapter summarize different drug delivery systems. The first chapter discusses the importance of nanoparticles that can be inter-related between catalysis, energy and drug delivery. This book serves as a valuable guide for researchers and students working in chemistry, physics, materials science, bioengineering and medicine.
