Aerogels: Properties and Applications

$195.00

This book, entitled Aerogels: Synthesis and Applications, aims to provide an insight into the synthesis and applications of varying materials in their aerogel form. The book covers the recent advances and reviews the state of the art of aerogels prepared from varying nanomaterials including carbon nanomaterials, silica, bioaerogels and hybrid aerogels in applications such as energy storage, electronics, or environmental remediation, in terms of water and air.

Aerogels: Properties and Applications

The book serves as a fundamental information source on the techniques and methodologies applied to obtain the aerogel form of different nanomaterials, their characterization, and their post-synthesis modification or hybridization. The information enclosed in this book will be invaluable for experts to consolidate their knowledge and provide insight for newcomers to the field. Moreover, the book also includes the evolution of student satisfaction regarding a novel teaching approach based on the use of a teaching mobility event (International Week) as a platform to introduce engineering students to nanotechnology and specifically to graphene aerogels which could serve to improve teaching abilities and outcomes.

Standard delivery generally occurs within 5 to 7 business days after the shipping date. However, the delivery may take about 7 to 10 business days, depending on the shipping destination, logistics, weather conditions, product weight, size, or shipping company distribution structures.

SHIPPING COSTS: For some industrial products, e.g., heavy wheels, CNC machines, etc., the shipping cost is calculated based on the product weight, not quantity. To benefit from lower shipping costs for orders with multiple items, please contact us at sales@ozrobotics.com. Our shipping rates are listed clearly on each product page under the SHIPPING tab. Additionally, to see the shipping cost for your country, add the item to the Shopping Cart; you will see the shipping cost based on your Country and Location.

The total amount for your order does not include a customs fee/tariff. A tariff belongs to the buyer when applicable. Why don't we add tariffs to the product's retail price? - If all countries deducted the same tariff amount, we would have added the tariff amount to the product price. However, we do not do that because each country charges a different amount, while some do not even charge. Therefore we can't add any tariff to the product's retail pricing. Oz Robotics, Manufacturing Partner, or Supplier are not responsible for tariffs. Please check the "Made In:" and "Brand:" labels on the product page to see the product's origin. The total amount for your order does not include any duties, import taxes, customs fees, and GST/VAT. The buyer must pay all import duties. If you choose not to pay the tariff and parcel returns, there will not be any refund. Please click here to see more on Tariffs.
