Description

Retaining the proven concept, this new edition of the well-received reference has been updated and expanded with 20% additional material to reflect new developments and such hot topics as nanocarbon hybrid materials.
The book is divided into three sections, starting with an introductory chapter that describes basic chemical principles as well as the characterization of hybrid materials. The second part provides an overview of specific types of hybrid materials, including nanocomposites and nanoparticles, natural and artificial hybrid materials, as well as porous hybrid materials. The final section then discusses various applications of hybrid materials, including medical, optical, electronic and electrochemical uses.
With its combination of theory and examples taken from real-life applications, this will appeal to newcomers to the field as well as specialized researchers.
