The book “SILVER NANOPARTICLES: Synthesis, functionalization and Applications” highlights the glorious journey traversed by AgNPs in the contemporary era where they have cemented their place as the most extensively exploited material of the present generation. The most popular theranostic application, tumor annihilating properties, and their prevalence as next-generation antibiotics have been presented epigrammatically. The silver nanoparticles serve as ubiquitous material of the present generation with applications in a wide-array of disciplines that include renewable energy, optoelectronics, image contrast agents, tomography, magnetic imaging, bioprobes, diagnostic kits, gene delivery, and molecular medicine. Among their concurrent applications, the biological interventions of AgNPs have revolutionized the pharma sector by making a significant contribution starting from the drug delivery and ending at bioimaging. The surface engineering of AgNPs causes them to develop functional head-groups that serve as precursors for the chemical transformations to therapeutically relevant molecules with value-added physicochemical and physiological properties in the form of optical, electrical, and magnetic characteristics. This book is a rich blend of professional writing and a raw understanding of the key details of AgNPs in terms of their surface engineering and applications. Apparently, being the most extensively exploited material of the generation with ubiquitous applications, the present readership must inculcate the basic understanding of the synthesis and further utilization of AgNPs, the need that this book mainly caters.
