A circular and environmentally friendly economy could displace the linear economy currently in use worldwide. This paradigm shift would involve extending the life cycles of products and increasing the efficiency of electric and electronic devices. The generation of new materials will be crucial, as well as the recycling or conversion of materials after use. This book delves into new methods of production, management, recycling, and conversion of both new and conventional materials.

This book covers the preparation, design, and utilization of nanohybrid materials for biomedical applications. These materials have the potential to enhance the effectiveness of drugs, promote high cell growth in new scaffolds, and lead to the development of biodegradable surgical sutures. The use of hybrid magneto-plasmonic nanoparticles may pave the way for non-invasive therapies. The most promising materials include silica nanostructures, polymers, bioresorbable metals, liposomes, biopolymeric electrospun nanofibers, graphene, and gelatin. Much research focuses on the development of biomaterials for cell regeneration and wound healing applications.
