Micro and Nanotechnology in Paper Manufacturing
Author- Dr. Mahendra Patel, (530 pages ); ISBN No. 978-81-923542-2-4);

An excellent book for reference in Science/ Engineering & Technology/Paper Industry/R & D and Teaching
Foreword for the book written by Prof. Rene Van Grieken, Editor-in-Chief, X-ray Spectrometry and Director, University of Antwerp, Belgium.; Congratulation letter by: Prof. Dominique Lachenal, International School of Paper, Grenoble, France.
This book for the first time addresses the specific subject of Nanotechnology in the paper industry and in all allied fields. It is written in mind ensuring that readers can get an in-depth view of the cataclysmic changes this technology is bringing to their industry.

At the same time, the author recognizes that Nanotechnology is an emerging and a new technology, so the book starts with an introduction to the basic concepts and terminology of Nanotechnology.

The book consists of 37 chapters divided into five sections. The first section is designed to familiarize both beginners and advanced readers with the basic concepts, terminology and latest developments in nano-technology.

The section also provides an overview of the impact and general application of nano-technology across several industries. Section 2 covers nanotechnology in raw materials and on the different stages of paper manufacturing. Section 3 covers nanotechnology in packaging, printing and in specialty papers. Section 4 covers nanotechnology in production techniques, environmental and in energy issues. Section 5 covers the latest research and development initiatives on Nanotechnology and the future of Nanotechnology.
