About the book

The book "Silver nanoparticles" is proposed to provide the current state-of-the-art synthesis, characterization techniques, properties, and applications of silver nanoparticles and their nanocomposite materials. The articles covered in the book would be experimental research papers, reviews, or minireviews addressing different synthesis methods of silver nanoparticles such as chemical, physical, biological/ green methods, microwave methods, and recent advancements in their characterization techniques. Another important aspect covered would be toxicity evaluation and the health impacts of silver nanoparticles. A broader insight would be provided on the applications of silver nanoparticles in wound healing, tissue engineering, drug delivery, cancer diagnosis, antimicrobial surfaces, corrosion protective coatings, regenerative medicine, therapeutic applications, and others. Biopolymer nanocomposites such as starch, chitosan, cellulose, and others reinforced with silver nanoparticles can also be included. The book would be targeting students, scientists, and researchers, from academia and industry interested in nanoscience and technology of biopolymers, biomedical and tissue engineering, and nanomedicine.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Dajana Jusic

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.
