Stefan Bossmann and Hongwang Wang publish book on magnetic nanomaterials
Stefan Bossmann, professor of chemistry, and Hongwang Wang, grain sciences, have published their edited book, "Magnetic Nanomaterials: Applications in Catalysis and Life Sciences," which appears in the Royal Society of Chemistry series "Smart Materials."
Magnetic nanomaterials have undergone a significant evolution during the past decade, with supramolecular nanoparticle organization reaching unprecedented levels of complexity and the materials providing new approaches to treating cancer.
The book provides a comprehensive overview of the latest research in the area of magnetic nanoparticles and their broad applications in synthesis, catalysis and theranostics. It starts with an introduction to magnetism in nanomaterials and magnetic nanoparticle design, followed by individual chapters which focus on specific uses. Applications covered in the book include drug delivery, theranostic agents for cancer treatment as well as catalysis, biomass conversion and catalytic enhancement of NMR sensitivity.
According to Bossmann, readers will have an opportunity to learn about the frontier of magnetic nanotechnology from scientists who have shaped this unique and highly collaborative field of research.
Written and edited by experts working within the field across the world, this book will appeal to students and researchers interested in nanotechnology, engineering and physical sciences.
The following K-State professors have contributed chapters along with Bossmann and Wang: Viktor Chikan, chemistry; Punit Prakash, electrical and computer engineering; Donghai Wang, biological and agricultural engineering; and Deryl L. Troyer, anatomy and physiology.
