About the book

The book "Titanium Dioxide" aims to present a comprehensive platform of information and advances in the work performed on titanium dioxide. This will include a basic understanding of preparation, applications, properties measurements, experimental and theoretical advances on the subject and what are the recent and future challenges for the adoption of titanium dioxide. Recently, it has shown promising advances in thermal sciences, however, the safety aspects and limitations to applications need to be more carefully looked into. Heat transfer is a vital area in various engineering applications where problems need to be addressed for more efficient systems, now a days with advances in nanoscience, there is a great chance to enhance heat transfer efficiency of systems. Also, titanium dioxide is a promising candidate to be used at nano level to provide a solution to such challenges.

This book welcomes a wide range of researchers and academicians to participate in their state of the art work for the benefit of a wide readership working in industrial, academic and research organizations.

About the editor

Hafiz Muhammad Ali

King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals

Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Ali, currently working as an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia, received his doctoral degree in mechanical engineering from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, United Kingdom, in 2011. He was a postdoc at the Water and Energy Laboratory of the University of California at Merced, United States, during 2015-16. Thermal sciences, heat transfer, and solar energy are his major areas of interest. Over the span of several years, he supervised numerous undergraduate and postgraduate students and his work produced more than 150 papers featured in various reputed international journals. He also participated at several international and national conferences as an invited speaker and delivered keynote talks. His other research interests include electronics cooling, condensation, nanofluids, heat transfer devices, and thermal management. He is the recipient of the "Best Young Research Scholar Award" for 2017 in the Engineering category, conferred by the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan at the 7th HEC Outstanding Research Award Ceremony. He also had the honor of receiving HEC's Best Research Paper Award (2013/2014) and Research Productivity Award by Pakistan Council of Science and Technology (2016-17). Apart from his academic duties, he is actively involved with editorial duties at several international journals, notably Heat Transfer Engineering (Taylor & Francis), Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry (Springer), International Journal of Thermofluids (Elsevier), Journal Thermal Science, and Journal of Mechanical Engineering.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Mia Miskulin

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.
