About the book

The Nanoscience and nanotechnology fields will continue to grow due to the numerous benefits in our daily lives including human health, environmental safety, and device engineering. This will continue to encourage scientists to develop Zero-valent Iron (ZVI) or Iron oxide materials as their nanoparticles and nanocomposites have revealed many exciting and promising applications in environment, engineering, nanomedicine, catalysis, sensing, as therapeutic agents, food science and beyond. This book aims to cover the synthesis, characterization, and applications of ZVI or iron oxide materials and their composites all in one volume making it a unique reference. As a result of research and development in the area, these three aspects of synthesis, characterization, and applications have grown themselves covering many subtopics. In view of environmental concerns, green synthetic methods or improvement of existing methods to circumvent problems will be covered in detail, as will characterization methods which include current trends in spectroscopic, microscopic and diffraction methods. Lastly, as rapid development in engineering and biomedical applications attracts researchers, nanoparticle clean applications in this field will also be covered. Tremendous progress in diverse fields of nanoparticle applications demands for the updated content to be presented in a pedagogic style. Articles and reviews written by experts and practitioners from around the world are welcome. The proposed book is intended for academia, professionals, scientists, graduate and undergraduate students without any geographical limitations.

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.
