Nanotechnology: Therapeutic, Nutraceutical, and Cosmetic Advances discusses recent advances in the field, particularly with therapeutics, nutraceuticals and cosmetic sciences.

Therapeutics is an area which has perhaps benefitted the most, although nanoscience and technology have quietly entered the realms of food science and are playing pivotal roles in the efficient utilization of nutraceuticals.

Finally, even before therapeutics came cosmetics and companies started marketing unique products embedding the beneficial and advanced properties enabled by the use of nanostructures. This book highlights trends and applications of this wonderful new technology.

Phase Change Materials (PCMs) can store and release heat, while they are changing phase. They allow relatively large amount of energy to be stored in comparatively small volumes. Due to their attractive and controllable properties, they are useful in many applications.

For instance, PCMs have been used as smart building materials, energy storage devices, heat recovering agents, etc. By virtue of their properties, these materials have also found applications in smart textiles and aerospace industry.

This book aims to review the synthesis and properties of a variety of functional organic and inorganic phase change material systems developed in the recent years for advanced applications.

The book is a valuable reference text for chemical, materials and polymer engineers, as well as practicing scientists and researchers in both academia and industry. It is also a useful resource for postgraduate university students in chemical, materials and polymer engineering disciplines, along with interdisciplinary streams.

Nanoarchitectonics in Biomedicine describes this new area of nanoscience that has emerged as a major branch of nanoscience.

The book brings together recent applications and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each process, offering international perspectives on the technologies based on these findings. It offers new insights for nanoarchitectonics, starting with the currently used methods of synthesis and characterization of such materials, along with their biomedical applications.
