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.
