Electroactive polymers (EAPs) reply to electric stimulation with huge deformations. they're dynamic actuators that have attracted consciousness from an interdisciplinary viewers of engineers and scientists. An permitting EAP know-how is rising which makes an attempt to mimic the houses of usual muscle and which, therefore, can practice a special functionality in quite a few biologically-inspired robotics functions.
Highlighting fresh advancements in addition to destiny demanding situations, this sequence of volumes covers such themes as emulsions, nano-emulsions, nano-dispersions and novel ideas for his or her research. It additionally considers the basic method in components corresponding to managed liberate, drug supply and diverse functions of nanotechnology.
