About the book
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have become one of the widely researched nanostructures in recent years because of their unique optical, physical, and chemical properties. The properties of AgNPs can be modified to produce nanoparticles with interesting and unique properties, such as optical and catalytic, due to their different structure, shape, and size. Materials based on AgNPs have interesting, challenging, and promising features suitable for various applications in the fields of biosensing, diagnostics, imaging, catalysis, and drug delivery. In particular, the size-dependent unique plasmonic properties make the AgNPs ideal for biomedical and diagnostic applications.
The aim of this book is to provide a range of contributions describing in detail the different methodologies for the production/synthesis of AgNPs of various shapes and sizes. The book will also provide an in-depth understanding of the new methods for characterizing, modifying AgNP's properties, and their applications in various fields. The book will be useful to a wide range of readers, including scientists, engineers, doctoral and postdoctoral fellows, and scientific professionals working in specialized fields such as medicine, nanotechnology, spectroscopy, analytical chemistry diagnostics, and plasmonics.
