Biocompatible Hybrid Oxide Nanoparticles for Human Health: From Synthesis to Applications explores the synthesis, structure, properties and applications of functionalized oxide nanoparticles. The books shows the applications of materials depending on their composition and structure, with a focus on silicon, titanium and iron oxides, each of which was chosen because of their unique features, including silica because it is chemically resistant to most organic solvents, harmless to living organisms, can thicken flowable formulations, and increase the strength of materials, titania for its unique chemical, optical, electrophysical and bactericidal properties, and iron-containing materials because they possess important magnetic properties.
- Shows how oxide nanoparticles are being used to solve current problems in the fields of environmental protection, medicine, and in the creation of "smart" materials
- Includes case studies that explore the major characteristics and applications of silica, titania and iron oxide nanomaterials
- Discusses the use of biocompatible oxide nanostructures in the development of new sensing technology
