This book provides an overview of nanoparticle production methods, scale-up issues drawing attention to industrial applicability, and addresses their successful applications for commercial use. There is a need for a reference book which will address various aspects of recent progress in the methods of development of nanoparticles with a focus on polymeric and lipid nanoparticles, their scale-up techniques, and challenges in their commercialization.
There is no consolidated reference book that discusses the emerging technologies for nano particle manufacturing. This book focuses on the following major aspects of emerging technologies for nano particle manufacturing.
I. Introduction and Biomedical Applications of Nanoparticles
II. Polymeric Nanoparticles
III. Lipid Nanoparticles
IV. Metallic Nanoparticles
V. Quality Control for Nanoparticles
VI. Challenges in Scale-Up Production of Nanoparticles
VII. Injectable Nanosystems
VIII. Future Directions and Challenges
Leading scientists are selected as chapter authors who have contributed significantly in this field and they focus more on emerging technologies for nanoparticle manufacturing, future directions, and challenges.
