CONTENTS:- Nanotechnology to bring radical changes to chemical processes and engineering; Section 2. Nanotechnology improves foods, water, farming and environment but potential risks come with benefits; Section 3. Health, Medicine and surgical transplants have definite nanotech advantages; Section 4. Nanotechnology set to bring revolutionary changes in I.T., Communications and entertainment industrial; Section 5. Security, defence, weaponry, space science and aviation get new facelift by nanotechnology; Section 6. Nanotechnology makes difference to materials, markets and development in various sciences and industries; Section 7. Nanotechnology in infrastructure, mining, energy, construction and transport; Section 8. Discussions and debates about nanotech advancements that may affect more than just industry.
The Nanotech advancements in near future will be magical and capable of upturning the commercial calculations of market beyond anyone?s guess of the moment. This set Nanotechnology and Industrial Future is a sneak preview at that and an attempt to visit various industries and record the mutational sequences taking place within them. The four volumes have eight discrete of Industrial enterprise world over and fresh researchers which deserve the attention have been included. We as editors had to be ruthless sometimes in cutting off the superfluous feed we got from interviewing different enterprises, and keeping in the book only what was academically relevant or could affect the industrial future of the world and nonetheless our lives. Topics listed have been loosely classified because of the nature of the science we are dealing with. One development in any industrial segment of nanotechnology in bound to affect other sectors, howsoever remotely connected they might seem. Topical entries are complete and independent in themselves, as the volumes are compiled for research reference and need to be understood as encyclopaedic reference to the development in nanotechnology. Hence, the volumes should be referred for the entries listed and their descriptions. No doubt they are up-to-date, yet futuristic and make the work a formidable piece of reference in nanotechnology.
