Description

Nutraceuticals, the fourth volume in the Nanotechnology in the Agri-Food Industry series, is an invaluable resource for anyone in the food industry who needs the most current information about scientific advances in this field. Nutraceuticals are gaining significant attention because of their apparent safety, as well as their nutritional and therapeutic uses.

Scientific indications have reinforced dietary interposition as an effective implement for a healthy lifestyle. Bioactive components have been shown to exhibit antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, hypocholesterolemic, hypoglycemic, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic roles in the living system. Research professionals, professors, and students will all find this book useful.

About Alexandru Grumezescu

Dr. Alexandru Mihai Grumezescu is Assistant Professor at the Department of Science and Engineering of Oxide Materials and Nanomaterials, in the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science, with a second affiliation to the Faculty of Medical Engineering, at the Politehnica University of Bucharest in Romania. He is an experienced and oft-published researcher and editor in the field of nano and biostructures, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of three journals: Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, Letters and Applied NanoBioScience, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Bulletin, and Journal of Food Bioengineering and Nanoprocessing. He also serves as editor or guest editor for several notable journals. Dr. Grumezescu has published 150 peer-reviewed papers, 20 book chapters, 8 co-authored books and 21 edited books. He has developed two new research directions related to bio-applications of metal oxide nanoparticles: (i) functional metal oxide nanostructures to improve the delivery of antimicrobials in active form with a high efficiency against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria; and (ii) smart metal oxide nanostructures, functionalized with different fatty acids, essential oils or in combination with organic polymers, to inhibit bacterial colonization of different medical or industrial surfaces. Dr Alexandru Mihai Grumezescu is also Assistant Professor at the Department of Science and Engineering of Oxide Materials and Nanomaterials, in the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science at the Politehnica University of Bucharest in Romania. He is an experienced and oft-published researcher and editor in the field of nano- and biostructures, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of four journals: Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, Letters and Applied NanoBioScience, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Bulletin, and Journal of Food Bioengineering and Nanoprocessing. He also serves as editor or guest editor for several notable journals. Dr Grumezescu has published 160 peer-reviewed papers, 20 book chapters, 9 coauthored books, and 21 edited books.
