Summary
Silver Nanomaterials for Agri-Food Applications explores how silver-based nanomaterials are being used to create more efficient systems and products across the agri-food sector. In particular, the book covers silver nanomaterials as antimicrobial agents, in food science, for plant protection, and for water purification. Sections highlight the effect of silver nanoantimicrobials and drug synergism on drug-resistant pathogens, offer an overview of silver nanomaterials-based nanosensors in agri-food applications, explore the use of silver nanostructures in plant science applications, cover plant protection applications, describe silver nanomaterial applications in the removal of dyes and pesticides from wastewater, and more
