About the book

Nanopores are pores of nanometer size. It may be created by a pore-forming protein or as a hole in synthetic materials such as silicon or graphene. This book intends to provide a good source of nanopore studies for researchers interested in and working in the general areas of electrochemistry, nanobiotechnology, materials, biomedical engineers, and chemical engineers who are interested in designing and utilizing processes to synthesize, characterize, and model nanopores. Focuses on the latest developments in nanopores, this book summarizes current research on nanopore materials, explains elegant approaches toward functional nanoporous materials, and investigates their scope and limitations.

The main focus of this book aims to be on the development of a novel method of nanopore fabrication, applications, and analysis of nanopore data. The secondary purpose of this book aims to be dedicated to a thorough discussion of the complexities involved in analyzing nanopores as well as the development of several tools that address the characterization of nanopores.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

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.
