About the book

Nanorods have attracted extensive research interest in science and technology due to their extraordinary properties, and high aspect ratio. They can be synthesized from carbon and other metal-based materials. These nanorods have found applications in different fields such as aerospace and automobile industries, biomedical fields, biosensors, catalysis, lithium-ion batteries, EMI shielding, etc. Nanorods are used in biomedical applications in drug delivery and cancer therapy, but their toxic behavior and mechanism are still unclear. This book proposes novel, fundamental, and comprehensive updates on the advancement in nanorods' synthesis, properties, and applications. Nanorods' toxicity levels and measurements are essential due to their increasing toxic effects on living organisms. Therefore, the new mechanism-based toxicity strategies will also be covered in this book to determine the toxic effects of nanorods. This book aims to bring concisely and compiled information in the book chapters. This book can provide benefits to teachers, students, and researchers.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Martina Ivancic

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.
