The next big thing is really small!” Someone has rightly quoted the foresaid words as nanotechnology, the science of miniature, has assumed vast proportions today. Eric Drexler popularized the term “nanotechnology” in 1990s and since then the buzz has increased day by day. The “nano-science” has grown rapidly and has started to taste commercial success as well. Today, the products of nanotechnology are shaping the future of every sphere of life from health sector to automotive sector and from energy harnessing to heavy machinery. In such a scenario, it would need a person to be highly ignorant to be oblivious to nanotechnology as a subject. The present series on Nanotechnology is an attempt to introduce nanotechnology, define its scope and explain the recent advances. Presently, the series is a composite of ten volumes covering a wide range of topics and the rest two Gap Vols on Biomaterials and Nanoimaging will be released very soon due to the reasons they are in Press. These volumes of the Series cover almost all aspects of nano world including fundamentals, synthesis and characterization, properties, and applications in different areas of life. Volume 1: Fundamentals and Applications Volume 2: Synthesis and Characterization Volume 3: Properties of Nanomaterials Volume 4: Nanomaterials and Nanostructures Volume 5: Defence Applications Volume 6: Energy and Environment Volume 7: Diagnostics and Therapeutics Volume 8: Electronics and Photovoltaics Volume 9: Construction Engineering Volume 10: Nanosensing Volume 1 gives an introduction of the nano world along with articles on natural and engineered nanomaterials, applications of nanofluids and nanomaterials, risk management and nanomaterials, electrospun nanofibers, and nanotechnology based products. Volume 2 covers topics on synthesis of nanomaterials such as nanocomposites, sol-gel nanomaterials, bionanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, gold nanowires and nanotubes, platinum nanoparticles, nanofillers, ceramic thin films, and their characterization techniques. Volume 3 include topics on different properties of nanomaterials like electron mass of nanomaterials, heat transfer characteristics of nanofluids, flow properties in nanochannels, novel nanoemulsion heat transfer fluids, and rheological characteristics of bio-modified nano binders. Volume 4 presents topics on nanomaterials and their structures like polymer nanocomposites, core shell materials, advanced organic nanoporous materials, metallic and hybrid nanostructures, nanostructured coatings, thermoelectric nanofluids, and Si, SiGe, and SiC nanowires. Volume 5 is entirely devoted to the defence applications of nanotechnology and contains chapters on introduction of nanotechnology in defence sector, recent advances in nanomaterials and nanotechnology, nanomaterials for radar absorbing structures, nano-sized ingredients of propellants and explosives, and self - healing anti corrosion coatings for aerospace applications. Volume 6 is more or less specialized to energy and environment issues. The chapters in this volume address issues related to nanoenergetic materials, clean and green energy technologies, carbon nanotubes and graphenes in energy storage, nanocrystalline and nanoporous hydrogen storages, silver nanoparticles in real environments, nanostructures for schottky solar cells, and nanostructured materials for sustainable solutions. Volume 7 is devoted to biomedical applications of nanotechnology. Three applications of nanotechnology are particularly suited to biomedicine: diagnostic techniques, drugs, and prostheses and implants. Issues like nanomedicine, bionanomaterials, applications of nanotechnology in medicine, treatment of cancer with nanomedicines, and role of nanotechnology in development of antimicrobial fabrics have been addressed. Volume 8 takes into account the applications of nanotechnology in electronics and photovoltaics. This volume includes chapters on advanced nanostructured electrodes for Li-ion batteries, topological insulator nanostructures, applications of various TiO2 nanostructures, hybrid nanocrystal/polymer bulk heterojunction photovoltaic cells, and advanced radial pn junction solar cells constructed on silicon nanowire arrays. Volume 9 incorporates chapters on role of nanotechnology in civil/construction industry. The chapters in this volume discusses the issues like fundamental changes brought in construction world by the use of nanotechnology, sustainable materials for energy efficient building design, synthesis of ceramic nanoparticle, application of layered nanoparticles in the micromechanical reinforcement and flame retardancy of polymer foams, smart nanosurfaces in ceramic and glass, and parameters controlling blast-induced damage and overbreak. Volume 10 refers to the use of nanotechnology for the development of nanoscale sensors and devices. These devices may be used for various medicinal purposes, for cost effective monitoring of public systems, and to build other nanoproducts such as computer chips. This volume includes chapters on nanostructure based chemical sensors and their applications, aptasensors for specific sensing and detection, gas sensors, humidity nano sensors, detection of organic pollutants via nanostructures. Forthcoming Volumes 11 and 12 on biomaterials and nanoimaging are at different stages of production and are likely to be followed very soon. Biomaterials are widely used in medical applications like joint replacements, bone plates, bone cement, artificial ligaments and tendons, dental implants for tooth fixation, heart valves, and artificial tissues. Similarly modern bioimaging technologies have led to significant advances in diagnosis and therapy. The most disease processes occur at the molecular and cellular levels on nanometers length scale, the use of molecular and cellular imaging agents made from inorganic nanoparticles to target the desired location for therapeutic and diagnostic applications is of great interest. The preparation of nanoparticles for bioimaging applications includes a variety of steps: synthesis, coating, surface functionalization, and bioconjugation. These forthcoming volumes will address the recent developments in biomaterials and bioimaging which have also been area of active research. The chapters are written by leading authorities, each writing about his or her particular area of expertise. The main requirement for these chapters has been that they should give a reasonably complete up-to-date account of the current state of affairs in these areas, and they should be understandable to students and non-professionals who, in every possibility, may not belong to same level of knowledge and experience. The level of these chapters is consistent with the degree of complexity inherent in each chapter, but is adaptable to non-professionals. All chapters contain a list of references by means of which more details and more materials on the chapter can be found by interested readers.
