Summary expansion
As the environmental impact of existing construction and building materials comes under increasing scrutiny, the search for more eco-efficient solutions has intensified. Nanotechnology offers great potential in this area and is already being widely used to great success. This book is an authoritative guide to the role of nanotechnology in the development of eco-efficient construction materials and sustainable construction. Following an introduction to the use of nanotechnology in eco-efficient construction materials, part one considers such infrastructural applications as nanoengineered cement-based materials, nanoparticles for high-performance and self-sensing concrete, the use of nanotechnology to improve the bulk and surface properties of steel for structural applications and nanoclay-modified asphalt mixtures and safety issues relating to nanomaterials for construction applications. Part two discusses applications for building energy efficiency, including thin films and nanostructured coatings, switchable glazing technology and third generation photovoltaic (PV) cells, high-performance thermal insulation materials, and silica nanogel for energy-efficient windows. The focus of part is photocatalytic applications; chapters investigate nanoparticles for pollution control, self-cleaning and photosterilization and the role of nanotechnology in manufacturing paints and purifying water for eco-efficient buildings
