About the book

The book is devoted to describe the main groups of nanosystems with controlled morphology and internal structure, and moreover the methods of their formation and their characteristic physicochemical properties. It will cover examples of nanosystems responsive to different influential factors - magnetic and electrical fields, temperature, pressure, mechanical stress, acoustic and microwave fields, light irradiation, presence of chemical analytes and biological objects. Special attention will be given to existing and possible applications of such systems and nanostructured materials from which they are composed, and to artificially produced metamaterials in optoelectronics and nonlinear optics, nanophotonics, creation of new devices for information transfer and storage, stimuli responsive systems, and chemo- and biosensor systems. The book aims to be an overview on original methods for creating such smart nanosystems and nanomaterials with tunable properties, and on possible ways of their usage in modern science and technology. It will also describe the possible influence of such nanoobjects on human life, including different biomedical applications.

About the editor

Tatyana Shabatina

Moscow State University

Prof. Dr. Tatyana I. Shabatina is the Head of the Laboratory of Low Temperature Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russian Federation. She holds a master's degree with honor in Chemistry (1978) from MSU, and was awarded with PhD degrees in Physical Chemistry in 1984 and Chemical Sciences in Physical Chemistry in 2013, both from MSU. She conducted the following research trainings: at Max-Plank Institute, Muelheim (Germany) (1994), at the University of Amsterdam (Nederland) (1996), at the Kansas State University (USA) (2000), and was a Visiting Professor at the University of York (UK) (2009). Her scientific activity is connected mainly with cryo- and nanochemistry, metal nanoclusters and hybrid metal-mesogenic nanosystems, drug nanoforms and cryospectroscopy. She obtained the following awards: M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University Prize for young scientists (1984) and Diplomas of Winner of M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University Innovation Projects Exhibitions (2004, 2012 and 2016). She was the supervisor of 8 PhD students and 12 undergraduates. She is the author of more than 120 scientific papers, 4 books, 4 book chapters and 6 patents from Russian Federation.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Tijan

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, copyediting 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.
