About the book

The goal of the book is to give the reader an overview of a field related to click chemistry. This book aims to provide information about click chemistry to the synthesis nano/microstructures, click chemistry for drug delivery nanosystems, and applications of click reactions in environmental technologies. The book welcomes submissions written by authors in the field of experimental methods and critical reviews from multi-disciplines such as chemistry, environmental chemistry, pharmacy and materials science.

Among others, welcome topics are in situ click chemistry, classification of click chemistry, click chemistry in polymer science, click chemistry in materials science, click chemistry reactions in medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutical applications, click chemistry in environmental chemistry applications and pollutants, chemical sensors sensor based on click chemistry, photoelectrochemical sensor based on click chemistry, wastewater treatment, nanoadsorbent, hydrogel networks.

All interested authors are welcome to focus on recent studies, industrial applications, and new technological developments on click chemistry in nanotechnology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

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.
