This volume is a comprehensive guide to the industrial use of polymer composites. Edited contributions demonstrate the application of these materials for different industrial sectors. The book covers the benefits, future potential, and manufacturing techniques of different types of polymers. Contributors also address challenges in using nanopolymers in these industries. Readers will find valuable insights into the current demand and supply of polymer composites and future scope for research and development in this field of polymer science.

The volume presents seven chapters, each exploring a different application of polymer composites. Chapter 1 discusses the use of polymer additives for improving classical concrete and the workability and durability of polymer composite concrete. Chapter 2 explores the use of polymer nanocomposites in packaging, including smart/intelligent packaging, modified atmosphere packaging, and vacuum packaging. Chapter 3 delves into the use of polymer composites in tissue engineering, including manufacturing techniques and various applications. Chapter 4 explores energy storage applications for polymer composites, while Chapter 5 discusses their use in microbial fuel cells. Chapter 6 explores the use of carbon nanotubes in polymer composite gas sensors. Finally, Chapter 7 discusses the use of polymer composites in automotive applications.

This is an ideal reference for researchers, scientists, engineers, and professionals in the fields of materials science, polymer science, engineering, and nanotechnology. The content is also suitable for graduate and postgraduate students studying industrial manufacturing.

Audience: Researchers, scientists, engineers, and professionals in the fields of materials science, polymer science, engineering, and nanotechnology. Graduate and postgraduate students studying industrial manufacturing.


Currently, there is an increase in the number of social media platforms that we use, and most of them have so-called weak and unreliable passwords. During social media interactions, large quantities of metadata are collected, and hackers can take advantage of this and create havoc. In contrast to end-to-end encryption, blockchain technology can be used to develop a standard security protocol. As part of a unified API framework, it can also be used to enable cross-messaging capabilities by securing private messaging.

Even though the blockchain is not infallible, it has evolved to become one of the most foolproof means of transacting in the world of digital networks. Since the technology is designed and intended to ensure information integrity, it has been praised for its effectiveness. There are many sectors that can benefit from it if it is used properly. As blockchain has the potential to be practical for many utilisations, it can be implemented for many uses in a variety of ways. The most practical use of this kind of system would be to use its integrity assurance to build cybersecurity solutions for many other technologies as well. This book is a good step in that direction.

The book “ Applications of Blockchain in Cybersecurity Solutions,” edited by Dr. Rashmi Agrawal and Dr. Neha Gupta, is a comprehensive book on Blockchain Technologies. The authors have tried their best to present the concepts and techniques to every extent. Practical applications of blockchain in cybersecurity are also well presented in some chapters.
