Characterization of Nanomaterials in Complex Environmental and Biological Mediacovers the novel properties of nanomaterials and their applications to consumer products and industrial processes.

The book fills the growing gap in this challenging area, bringing together disparate strands in chemistry, physics, biology, and other relevant disciplines. It provides an overview on nanotechnology, nanomaterials, nano(eco)toxicology, and nanomaterial characterization, focusing on the characterization of a range of nanomaterial physicochemical properties of relevance to environmental and toxicological studies and their available analytical techniques.

Readers will find a multidisciplinary approach that provides highly skilled scientists, engineers, and technicians with the tools they need to understand and interpret complicated sets of data obtained through sophisticated analytical techniques.

  • Addresses the requirements, challenges, and solutions for nanomaterial characterization in environmentally complex media
  • Focuses on technique limitations, appropriate data collection, data interpretation, and analysis
  • Aids in understanding and comparing nanomaterial characterization data reported in the literature using different analytical tools
  • Includes case studies of characterization relevant complex media to enhance understanding
Mohammed Baalousha received a BSc in Civil Engineering from the Islamic University of Gaza, Palestine in 2001. After that, he moved to France where he completed a MSc degree in Applied Mechanics in 2002 and a PhD in Environmental Biogeochemistry in 2006 from the University of Bordeaux, France investigating environmental role of colloid...
