It gives me immense pleasure in introducing the book "Nanomaterials" based on state
of the art of un-doped and doped semiconductor metal oxide nanostructures, state of
the art of nano-composites as well as applied polymers, and their various potential
applications. This deals with nano-technological aspects of the synthesis, growth,
development, and potential applications of semiconductor nanostructure metal oxides.
The book “Advances in Diverse Industrial Applications of Nanocomposites” was well
thought about knitt ing several broad disciplines of nanocomposites in mind. A glance
through the pages of science and engineering literature shows that the use of nanocomposites
for emerging technologies represents one of the most active areas of research
and development throughout the fi elds of chemistry, physics, life sciences, and related
This potentially unique work offers various approaches on the implementation of
nanowires. As it is widely known, nanotechnology presents the control of matter at
the nanoscale and nanodimensions within few nanometers, whereas this exclusive
phenomenon enables us to determine novel applications.
Nanowire technology has considerably improved and developed many technologies
and industry sectors in the field of IT, communications, computer technology,
medicine devices, sensors applications and many others....

When the first edition Chemistry of Petrochemical Processes was written, the etention was to introduce to the users a simplified approach to a diversified subject dealing with the chemistry and technology of var_ious petroleum and petrochemical process.
This Handbook provides a concise overview of the latest technologies for managing industrial air pollution in petrochemical, oil and gas, and allied industries. Detailed material on equipment selection, sizing, and troubleshooting operations is provided along with practical design methodology. Unique to this volume are discussions and information on energy-efficient technologies and approaches to implementing environmental cost accounting measures.
In contrast to our previous study (Barth & Marx, 2008) dealing with a currently decreasing
research field (high-temperature superconductors) we analyzed here a topic which has
raised a strongly increasing interest among researchers: research activities around carbon
nanotubes (CNTs or NTs). Carbon nanotubes (often named only nanotubes) are graphite
sheets rolled up into cylinders with diameters of the order of a few nanometers and up to
some millimeters in length with at least one end capped with a hemisphere of the fullerene
Fiber Reinforced Polymers are by no means new to this world. It is only because of our fascination with petrochemical and non-petrochemical products that these wonderful materials exist. In fact, the polymers can be considered and used in the construction and construction repair. The petrochemical polymers are of low cost and are used more that natural materials.
Nanotechnology has experienced a rapid growth in the past decade, mostly because of
the rapid advances in nano-fabrication techniques employed to fabricate the nanodevices.
Nano-fabrication can be divided into two categories: the first is the so-called
“bottom up” approach, in which nano-structures are created either by chemical synthesis
of nano-wires, nanotubes and nano-particles, or by self-assembly of nano-objects or thin
layers to form quasi-periodic arrays or phase separation patterns....
The Andehydration is an important process in offshore gas processing. The gas is dehydrated offshore to avoid dangers associated with pipeline transport and prossing of wet gas. The problems include corrosion, water condensation and plugs created by ice or gas hydrates.
Microscopic and imaging techniques:
– Optical microscopy
– Confocal microscopy
– Electron microscopy (SEM and TEM, related methods)
– Scanning probe microscopy (STM and AFM, related methods) Surface spectrometric techniques:
– X-ray fluorescence (from electron microscopy)
– Auger electron spectrometry
– X-ray photoelectron spectrometry (XPS/UPS/ESCA)
Nanotechnology began as a theoretical concept in 1959 in a talk by Nobel physicist Richard
Feynman. By the 1980s the theory of nanotechnology became more of a fact when new
microscopes were developed allowing scientists to see nanometers, down to one-billionth of
a meter (Brown, 2008).
This book introduces a new concept around the organization and development of noble
metal. Noble metals are popularly used across the world. This book contains 19
contributions on the subject.
The first chapter contributed by Professor Matsunaga deals with the principles of noble
metals, the dielectric screening properties and many body effects of noble metal. The
second chapter written by Dr. Geraldes deals with noble metal as a resource and its
