This is book number 84 in the Materials Research Foundations series.
This book focuses on aerogels and their applications in such areas as energy storage, thermal storage, catalysis, water splitting and environmental remediation. The materials covered include nanocellulose-, porous-, silica-, hybrid silica-, carbon-, graphene- and magnetic aerogels. Ways of modulating the pore structure of aerogels are presented, as well as surface modifications and the application of coatings. Future perspectives focus on functional foods, thickeners, stabilizers, and scaffolding in tissue repair.
