About the book
Iron oxide is one of the most abundant minerals on the earth, many of them can be presented as nanoparticles form, which included several different phases, e.g., ferrihydrite (Fh), magnetite (Fe3O4), maghemite (γ-Fe2O3), and wüstite (Fe1−xO). The shape and size-dependent, as well as surface structure, make them have various functions. Recently the knowledge of iron oxide nanoparticles is expanding rapidly, especially the engineering nanoparticles and their potential applications.
This book aims to cover different topic iron oxide nanoparticles, including the naturally occurring iron oxide nanoparticles, the synthesis Iron oxide nanoparticle (Engineering Iron oxide nanoparticles), the surface structure of Iron oxide nanoparticle and its physio-chemical characterization, the function of iron oxide nanoparticles and its wide variety of biomedical and environmental applications, as well as the fate and risk assessment of Iron oxide nanoparticles.
We believe that this book will be an active source of information for research in the field of nano studies as a bridge between the scientist in the mineralogy, biology, chemistry, geology, agronomy, medicine as well as environmental sciences.
