Nanomaterials can be synthesized by physical, chemical, and biological methods; however, the latter technique is preferred as it is eco-friendly, non-toxic, and cost-effective. The green synthesized nanomaterials have been found to be more efficient with potential applications in diverse fields. It is crucial to explore green synthesized nanomaterials and the applications that can be made in order to support water remediation, pharmaceuticals, food processing, construction, and more.

The Handbook of Research on Green Synthesis and Applications of Nanomaterials provides a multidisciplinary approach to the awareness of using non-toxic, eco-friendly, and economical green techniques for the synthesis of various nanomaterials, as well as their applications across a variety of fields. Covering topics such as antimicrobial applications, environmental remediation, and green synthesis, this book acts as a thorough reference for engineers, nanotechnology professionals, academicians, students, scientists, and researchers pursuing research in the nanotechnology field.
