About this book

In this book we present ten chapters describing the synthesis and application of nanomaterials for health, food, agriculture and bioremediation. Nanomaterials, with unique properties are now being used to improve food and agricultural production. Research on nanomaterials is indeed revealing new applications that were once thought to be imaginary. Specifically, applications lead to higher crop productivity with nanofertilisers, better packaging, longer food shelf life and better sensing of aromas and contaminants. these applications are needed in particular in poor countries where food is scarce and the water quality bad. Nanotechnology also addresses the age old issue of water polluted by industrial, urban and agricultural pollutants. For instance, research produces nanomaterials that clean water more efficiently than classical methods, thus yielding water for drinking and irrigation. However, some nanomaterials have been found to be toxic.  Therefore, nanomaterials should be engineered to be safe for the environment.

Eric Lichtfouse
Eric Lichtfouse, is a soil scientist at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research  (INRA). He has invented the 13C-dating method(1) allowing to measure the dynamics of soil organic molecules, thus opening the field of  molecular-level investigations of soil carbon sequestration. Chief Editor of the awarded journal Agronomy for Sustainable Development(3), he has raised the journal rank from 29/53 in 2003, with an impact factor of 0.56, to 2/81 in 2014, with an impact factor of 3.99, in the Agronomy category. He is also Chief Editor and founder of the journal Environmental Chemistry Letters(4) and the book series Sustainable Agriculture Reviews(5). He is lecturing scientific writing and communication in universities worldwide(6). His publication assistance service at the INRA has founded the french-english newsletter Publier La Science(7). He has published the book Scientific Writing for Impact Factor Journal(8). This textbook describes in particular the micro-article(9), a new tool to identify the novelty of experimental results. Further details are available on Slideshare(10), LinkedIn(11), ResearchGate(12), ResearcherID(13) and Orcid(14).
