ABSTRACT

Nanochemistry tools aid the design of Prussian blue and its analogue nanoparticles and nanocomposites. The use of such nanomaterials is now widely regarded as an alternative to other inorganic nanomaterials in a variety of scientific applications.

This book, after addressing Prussian blue and its analogues in a historical context and their numerous applications over time, compiles and details the latest cutting-edge scientific research on these nanomaterials. It compiles and deatils the latest cutting-edge scientific research on these nanomaterials. The book provides an overview of the methodological concepts of the nanoscale synthesis of Prussian blue and its analogues, as well as the study and understanding of their properties and of the extent and diversity of application fields in relation to the major societal challenges of the 21st century on energy, environment, and health.
