About the book

The book aims to cover the details for the crystallization of modified hectorites along with their characterization and materials applications. Among the several potential uses of these synthetic materials, there is a wide variety of materials including Interface materials green nanomaterial, liquid crystalline optical materials, polymeric nanomaterials, bio-inspired materials, hybrid nanocomposite and other semiconducting materials. There are numerous studies and exclusive potential utilities that are focusing on e.g. high-efficient solar cells, green nanotechnology, nano-imaging, drug delivery, electrochemical, electro-optical switching, optoelectronics, display and biocompatibility. The origins of current degradable implant materials can be examined and the chemical and biological properties of synthetic absorbable synthetic materials presently available for clinical and experimental and spectroscopic investigations. Contributions are expected (but not limited to) in the following topics:Novel coagulant materials e.g. natural and synthetic substances, organic-inorganic substances, green nanomaterials, polymers of different molecular weight and functionality, new processes, methods, and equipment that require less plant space and energy and minimize the secondary waste stream, a diverse set of applications of ultrasound to enhance chemical reactivity with important uses in synthetic materials chemistry, Cost-effective materials, equipment, and current state of operations.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
