Research and Markets: Defect Structure in Nanomaterials


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Defect structure in nanomaterials" to their offering.

Nanomaterials exhibit unique mechanical and physical properties compared to their coarse-grained counterparts, and are consequently a major focus of current scientific research. "Defect Structure in Nanomaterials" provides a detailed overview of the processing methods, defect structure and defect-related mechanical and physical properties of a wide range of nanomaterials.

The book begins with a review of the production methods of nanomaterials, including severe plastic deformation, powder metallurgy and electrodeposition. The lattice defect structures formed during the synthesis of nanomaterials are characterised in detail. Special attention is paid to the lattice defects in low stacking fault energy nanomaterials and metal - carbon nanotube composites. Topics covered in the second part of the book include a discussion of the thermal stability of defect structure in nanomaterials and a study of the influence of lattice defects on mechanical and hydrogen storage properties.

Key Topics Covered:

- Processing methods for nanomaterials

- Defect structure in bulk nanomaterials processed by severe plastic deformation

- Defect structure in low stacking fault energy nanomaterials

- Defects in nanomaterials processed by powder metallurgy

- Correlation between defect structure and mechanical properties of nanocrystalline materials

- Defect structure and mechanical properties of metal matrix-carbon nanotube composites

- Thermal stability of defect structures in nanomaterials

- Relationship between microstructure and hydrogen storage properties of nanomaterials.
