Carbon Nanomaterials for Agri-food and Environmental Applications


Carbon Nanomaterials for Agri-food and Environmental Applications discusses the characterization, processing and applications of carbon-based nanostructured materials in the agricultural and environmental sectors. Sections discuss the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes, the technological developments in environmental applications of carbon-based nanomaterials, and agri-food applications. The book also covers the toxic effects of engineered carbon nanoparticles on the environment, and in plants and animals. Finally, quality control and risk management are addressed to assess health and environmental risks. This is an applicable book for graduate students, researchers and those in industrial sectors of science and technology who want to learn more about carbon nanomaterials.

  • Compares a range of carbon-based nanomaterials, showing how they are used for a range of agricultural and environmental applications
  • Discusses the challenges and toxicity of different types of carbon-based nanomaterials for environmental and agricultural applications
  • Explores when different classes of nanomaterial should be used in different environments
