Summary : Due to their unique size-dependent physicochemical properties, nanostructured thin films are used in a wide range of applications from smart coating and drug delivery to electrocatalysis and highly-sensitive sensors. Depending on the targeted application and the deposition technique, these materials have been designed and developed by tuning their atomic-molecular 2D- and/or 3D-aggregation, thickness, crystallinity, and porosity, having effects on their optical, mechanical, catalytic, and conductive properties. Several open questions remain about the impact of nanomaterial production and use on environment and health. Many efforts are currently being made not only to prevent nanotechnologies and nanomaterials from contributing to environmental pollution but also to design nanomaterials to support, control, and protect the environment. This Special Issue aims to cover the recent advances in designing nanostructured films focusing on environmental issues related to their fabrication processes (e.g., low power and low cost technologies, the use of environmentally friendly solvents), their precursors (e.g., waste-recycled, bio-based, biodegradable, and natural materials), their applications (e.g., controlled release of chemicals, mimicking of natural processes, and clean energy conversion and storage), and their use in monitoring environment pollution (e.g., sensors optically- or electrically-sensitive to pollutants)

Summary : This is the first volume of a four volume set of the Comprehensive Guide for Nanocoatings Technology. Nanocoatings are a kind of thin film with at least one nanometric dimension. The main difference between nano and ordinary coatings is in their structure and properties. To recognize these differences, it is required to study the properties and structure of nanocoatings. The properties of every substance are controlled by their constituents. In this regard, properties of coatings depend on the constituent grains and particles. The chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of nanocoatings including their electrical resistance, permeability, corrosion and abrasion resistance, and magnetic properties, which are a function of structure and particle size of coatings. It is evident that use of these features creates many potential applications. This volume mainly discusses the deposition and growth mechanism of nanocoatings. There are 16 chapters in this volume; each one includes examples of these interesting materials, supported by appropriate figures for better clarification.

Summary : Surface engineering can be defined as an enabling technology used in a wide range of industrial activities. Surface engineering was founded by detecting surface features which destroy most of pieces, e.g. abrasion, corrosion, fatigue, and disruption; then it was recognized, more than ever, that most technological advancements are constrained with surface requirements. In a wide range of industry (such as gas and oil exploitation, mining, and manufacturing), the surfaces generate an important problem in technological advancement. Passing time shows us new interesting methods in surface engineering. These methods usually apply to enhance the surface properties, e.g. wear rate, fatigue, abrasion, and corrosion resistance. This book collects some of new methods in surface engineering.
