Nanomaterials from Natural Products for Industrial Applications

Description

Nanotechnology has emerged as one of the most promising tools for creating high performance and multifunctional materials for various industrial applications. Looking at the growing concern about the environment and sustainability, nanomaterials from natural sources are receiving great attention in the scientific community as well as in industrial sectors. Nanomaterials synthesized from natural products such as nanocellulose possess exceptional strength characteristics, light weight, transparency, and excellent biocompatibility and are, therefore, promising materials for coatings, packaging, medical, construction, electronics, filtration, transportation and other areas. Among various techniques, electrospinning has been considered to be a simple and versatile technique for producing continuous nanofibres from natural polymers. Therefore, besides particles, it has been possible to produce continuous fibres and textiles based on these nanomaterials.

In this context, this special issue intends to publish novel and high quality research and review papers addressing production, processing, functionalization, application, and challenges of nanomaterials derived from natural sources.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Biomimetics
  • Synthesis of nanoparticles from natural products
  • Production of nanofibres and fabrics through electrospinning of biopolymers
  • Functionalization of natural nanomaterials
  • Dispersion of natural nanomaterials in various matrices
  • Fabrication of nanocomposites (polymeric, cementitious, or others)
  • Application in different areas including coatings, packaging, construction, medical, electronics, etc.
  • Environmental effects and sustainability
