Noble Metal-Metal Oxide Hybrid Nanoparticles: Fundamentals and Applications sets out concepts and emerging applications of hybrid nanoparticles in biomedicine, antibacterial, energy storage and electronics. The hybridization of noble metals (Gold, Silver, Palladium and Platinum) with metal-oxide nanoparticles exhibits superior features when compared to individual nanoparticles. In some cases, metal oxides act as semiconductors, such as nano zinc oxide or titanium oxide nanoparticles, where their hybridization with silver nanoparticles, enhanced significantly their photocatalytic efficiency. The book highlights how such nanomaterials are used for practical applications.
Examines the properties of metal-metal oxide hybrid nanoparticles that make them so adaptableExplores the mechanisms by which nanoparticles interact with each other, showing how these can be exploited for practical applicationsShows how metal oxide hybrid nanomaterials are used in a range of industry sectors, including energy, the environment and healthcare
