About this book

This book comprises a collection of chapters on green biopolymer nanocomposites. The book discusses the preparation, properties, and applications of different types of biodegradable polymers. An overview of recent advances in the fabrication of biopolymers nanocomposites from a variety of sources, including organic and inorganic nanomaterials, is presented. The book highlights the importance and impact of eco-friendly green nanocomposites, both environmentally and economically. The contents of this book will prove useful for students, researchers, and professionals working in the field of nanocomposites and green technology.  

About the authors

Dr. Dhorali Gnanasekaran (M.Sc, M.Phil, Ph.D) is a scientific officer of Dielectric Materials Division, Central Power Research Institute, Bengaluru, India. He received his Ph.D in polymer chemistry at University of Madras, in CSIR - Central Leather Research Institute, Chennai, India. After completion of his doctorate, he joined the University of Pretoria, South Africa for his postdoctoral studies under South African prestigious “Vice-chancellor Post-Doctoral” fellowship in 2012. His research interests include the preparation of eco-friendly polymer nanocomposites for gas permeation studies, and biodegradable polymers and additives as eco-friendly/green lubricants/insulating oil for electric power generation.  Currently, he is serving as an editorial board member of the American Journal of Polymer Science and Technology, USA. He is the author of 2 books, 7 book chapters and 26 articles in peer-reviewed international journals.
