About the book

Nanofluids (NFs) are engineered and functional colloidal suspensions which consist of small structures (2–50 nm size) of materials such as metals (Cu, Ag, Au, Pt, etc.), oxides (Al2O3, SiO2, Fe3O4, TiO2, CuO, Cu2O, etc.), carbides (SiC, WC, etc), carbon (fullerenes, graphene, and carbon nanotubes) dispersed in a rheological fluid (such as water, mineral oils, ethylene glycol,polymer solutions, and biofluids as a carrier). Solubilizing C60 in non-aqueous and aqueous carriers is highly imperative in processing it in different forms of ionic or nonionic liquids, NFs, films and other derivatives. In recent years, solubilization and stabilization of C60 molecules in both aqueous and non-aqueous media has attracted immense attention in scientific communities. This book aims to discuss the synthesis and characterization of Fullerene-polymer nanofluids and nanocomposites. The optical, electrical and thermal properties of nanocomposites intend to be discussed in this book. Optical properties can be discussed using the data collected from UV-Visible, Raman, photoluminescence, and FTIR spectrophotometer.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Skomersic

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.
