Synthesis Properties and Applications of Oxide Nanomaterials
edited by José A. Rodríguez

Synthesis, Properties, and Applications of Oxide Nanomaterials summarizes the existing knowledge in oxide-based materials research. It gives researchers one comprehensive resource that consolidates general theoretical knowledge alongside practical applications.

Organized by topic for easy access, this handbook:

  • Covers the fundamental science, synthesis, characterization, physicochemical properties, and applications of oxide nanomaterials
  • Explains the fundamental aspects (quantum-mechanical and thermodynamic) that determine the behavior and growth mode of nanostructured oxides
  • Examines synthetic procedures using top-down and bottom-up fabrication technologies involving liquid-solid or gas-solid transformations
  • Discusses the sophisticated experimental techniques and state-of-the-art theory used to characterize the structural and electronic properties of nanostructured oxides
  • Describes applications such as sorbents, sensors, ceramic materials, electrochemical and photochemical devices, and catalysts for reducing environmental pollution, transforming hydrocarbons, and producing hydrogen
