About the book

Titanium dioxide is a chemical compound with a very wide range of applications. Its catalytic and, more precisely, photocatalytic properties, hydrophilic and bactericidal properties are also known and used. This compound is included as a filler in medical preparations, as a pigment component in cosmetics, in construction finishing materials, films, glass, paints and many others. There is a number of controversies about possible harmful effects of titanium dioxide on human health, especially in UV protective preparations, toothpastes and even in food. This book aims to present the current state of knowledge in the selection and production of the proper form of titanium dioxide, the unambiguous definition of the areas of possible and safe use of this compound, also in the form of nanoparticles. It would be beneficial to present the results of research in the area of carcinogenic and anti-carcinogenic interactions of this compound and to define the actual impact in this area.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

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.
