Biopolymer-based Metal Nanoparticle Chemistry for Sustainability Applications reviews key polymers found in nature, their characterization, modification and processes for applying them in the development of metal nanoparticles. Beginning with an introduction to both green chemistry and biopolymers, the book goes on to provide a detailed, comprehensive guide to the classification of biopolymers, with specific details on polysaccharides, proteins and polypeptides, along with a range of other key natural polymers. Synthesis, characterization and toxicity of natural polymer-based metal nanoparticles are then discussed before the book goes on to review the use of such particles across a range of important sustainable applications.
This book highlights novel topics related to the development and application of natural polymer-based metal nanoparticles, making it an ideal resource for all those working in the areas of green materials, environmental chemistry and polymer science and engineering.

Professor Mahmoud Nasrollahzadeh received his BSc (2003) in applied Chemistry and MSc (2007) in organic chemistry. In 2012 he graduated his PhD in organic chemistry at the Bu-Ali Sina University, Iran and then he joined to chemistry department at the University of Qom as assistant professor. Up to now he published around 97 publications in high impact international journals. His current research interests mainly focus on the organometallic chemistry and design of new synthetic routes to the synthesis of novel organic molecules. During the last years his research shifted toward phytochemistry, green synthesis of metal and metal oxides nanocatalysts, photocatalysts and surface modification of colloidal inorganic nanostructures. He has been awarded many scientific Iranian and international prizes.
