Recent Progress in Nanostructured Zinc Oxide Grown on Fabric for Wearable Thermoelectric Power Generator with UV Shielding Book Review:

Traditional materials for thermoelectric such as bismuth telluride have been studied and utilized commercially for the last half century, but recent advancements in materials selection are one of the principal function of the active thermoelectric device as it determines the reliability of the fabrication regarding technical and economic aspects. Recently, many researcher's efforts have been made to utilize oxide nanomaterials for wearable thermoelectric power generator (WTPG) applications which may provide environmental stable, mechanical flexibility, and light weight with low cost of manufacturing. In precise, fabric containing oxide metals have shown great promise as P−/N-type materials with improved transport and UV shielding properties. On the other hand, we have focused on ZnO nanostructures as a high-efficiency WTPG material because they are non-toxic to skin, inexpensive and easy to obtain and possess attractive electronic properties, which means that they are available for clothing with low-cost fabrication. To our observation, we are chaptering about the thermoelectric properties of ZnO and their composite nanostructures coated cotton fabric via the solvothermal method for the first time.

Oxide Nanostructures Book Review:

Nanomaterials, their synthesis, and property studies have been an obsession with modern current physicists, chemist, and materials scientists for their vast array of technological implications and the remarkable way their properties are modified or enhanced when the size dimensions are reduced to the realm of nanometers. Although nanomaterials, for a lot of practical purposes have been in existence since the remotest past of civilization, it is only in the last few decades that the field has been gaining the attention that it deserves from the scientific and industrial fraternity. A lot of this has to do with the immense improvement we made in tools to study and characterize these materials. Metal oxides have been one of the well documented and hottest branches of nanomaterials revolution with oxides such as TiO2, ZnO, CuO, Fe3O4, Cr2O3, Co3O4, MnO2 and many more being an integral part to a variety of technological advancements and industrial applications. From green power issues like photovoltaic cells to rechargeable batteries, from drug delivery agents to antimicrobial and cosmetic products, from superconductor materials to semiconductors and insulators, metal oxides have been omnipresent in terms of both commercial prerogatives and research highlights. This book is solely devoted towards this special section of nanomaterials with an aim to partially access the science pertaining to the oxides of metals.

Hierarchical Zinc Oxide Nanostructures for High Performances Interdigitated Electrode Transduction to Discriminate Medical Biomakers Book Review:

The scopes of this research work are divided into four main parts. The work scope in this research begins with the design of the Interdigitated electrode (IDE). The mask will be designed by using AutoCAD software and the size of the mask must be in 100 nm. In the second scope, the fabrication and optimization of the Zinc Oxide nanowire based sensor is conducted though deposition of zinc oxide by using spin coating on the IDE electrode and etching method with suitable parameters. Intially, the zinc oxide wire is deposited and the nano wires are then grown vertically on the ZnO wire surface simultaneously. Next, the third scope, morphological characterize of the Zinc Oxide nanowire is conducted by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and high power microscopy (HPM) to ensure that the nanowire is grown is in correct orientation. Electrical characterization on the fabricated zinc oxide nanowire biosensor is conducted by current-voltage test, and resistivity test. This is to validate the electrical performances of the zinc oxide nanowire biosensor. Finally, validation of the fabricated zinc oxide nanowire biosensor performances on DNA binding is conducted via electrical measurement by using Semiconductor parametric analyzer (SPA) and IV-CV method. The selectivity and sensitivity of the biosensor device is also examined.

Multifunctional Oxide Based Materials From Synthesis to Application Book Review:

The book deals with novel aspects and perspectives in metal oxide and hybrid material fabrication. The contributions are mainly focused on the search for a new group of advanced materials with designed physicochemical properties, especially an expanded porous structure and defined surface activity. The proposed technological procedures result in an enhanced activity of the synthesized hybrid materials, which is of great importance when considering their potential fields of application. The use of such materials in different technological disciplines, including aspects associated with environmental protection, allows for the verification of the proposed synthesis method. Thus, it can be stated that those aspects are of interdisciplinary character and may be located at the interface of three scientific disciplines—chemistry, materials science, and engineering—as well as environmental protection. Furthermore, the presented scientific scope is in some way an answer to the continuous demand for such types of materials and opens new perspectives for their practical use
