The book “SILVER NANOPARTICLES: Synthesis, functionalization and Applications” presents a succinct coverage of the current synthesis protocols, functionalization techniques, and state-of-the-art applications of surface functionalized AgNPs in the medical field. The presented book traverses the journey of AgNPs from synthesis paradigm to functionalization, which further extends to the key biological applications. This book focuses on a wider audience, including medicinal chemists, drug design experts, biological and translational researchers, and physical chemists working in the field of biological nanoscience. The book provides a rich experience of understanding the synthesis, functionalization, and applications of AgNPs in a single reading enriched with self-explanatory images, illustrations, and tables wherever necessary. The book provides useful information for the postgraduate (Master’s and research higher degree) doctoral students and postdoctoral research fellows working on the development of advanced nanostructures and nanopharmaceuticals. This book intends to cover both the academic and research requirements of the students for pursuing course work in various academic degree programs, including Physical Sciences, Pharmaceutical Sciences, and various disciplines under the Natural Sciences.
