About the book

Nanoscience and nanotechnology field will continue to grow due to the numerous benefits in our daily lives, including human health, food processing, environmental safety and device engineering. Nanofibers are materials in the diameter range of 3–100 nm and length range of 0.1–1000 µm. They have been known for a long time for their vast range of applications as sensors, catalysts, conductors, for applications in tissue engineering, etc., owing to their high surface area-to-volume ratio, high porosity, and the ease of tuning their structures, functionalities, and properties.

In this book, authors are invited to submit articles and reviews related to the synthesis, characterization and applications of nanofibers and their nanocomposites. As a result of research and development in this area, these three aspects have grown themselves as an umbrella covering many subtopics at one place which makes it a unique reference. These days, green synthesis of nanomaterials using biomolecules has emerged as a new and exciting area of research in the field of nanotechnology. Green synthetic methods or improvement of the existing ones to circumvent some of the problems are planned to be covered in detail which is a must read in view of environmental concerns. Characterization methods will include current trends in spectroscopic, microscopic thermogravimetric, porosimetry, etc. Tremendous progress in diverse fields of nanofibers applications greatly demands to present the updated content in a pedagogic style. We will focus on the various aspects of nanofibers but not limited to poly vinyl pyrrolidone (PVP), poly (lactic acid), biopolymer, carbon nanotubes, polymer matrix composites, ceramic matrix composites, polymer–polymer composites, metal matrix composites, etc.

The proposed book is intended for academia, professionals, scientists and graduate and undergraduate students without any geographical limitations.

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.
