ACS Symposium Series: Edited by Raymond H. Fernando and Li-Piin Sung.

Nanotechnology-based coating products have shown remarkable growth in recent years. This book begins with an overview on recent scientific and technological advances in nanotechnology applications. Chapters cover a number of key applications, along with the related fundamental science. Some contributions focus on issues related to inorganic/organic nanocomposite coating films, including dispersion of inorganic nanoparticles and nanoclays. Surface functionalized nanoparticles, predispersed inorganic nanoparticles that can be mixed with existing organic coating formulations, and organic/inorganic hybrid latexes are approaches discussed for preparation of nanocomposite coatings having improved scratch, corrosion, and UV resistance. The challenge of characterization of nanostructure and nanoparticle dispersion in coatings is addressed in several chapters. Assessment of photocatalytic activity of nanoparticles, use of atomic force microscopy, applications of nano-indentation for mechanical property measurements, and nano-thermal analysis are also discussed. The highly multidisciplinary nature of the field is evident throughout the book.
