Since the 1970's the authors of this book have been pioneers in the field, having produced several innovative methodologies that are currently used worldwide. This book will give the scientific and technical background to understand, to produce, and to apply nanosystems for conservation to works of art.Techniques based on nanotechnology are replacing traditional treatments. Scientists expanding their activities to conservation need to be acquainted with these advanced conservation methodologies through a suitable theoretical introduction to systems such as nanoparticles, microemulsions and gels. This unique book provides the detailed information necessary to understand and how to produce and use the modern systems for conservation. Numerous case studies will show how to handle these systems.Practitioners in cultural heritage activities and conservation science including scientists and conservators that operate in museums, universities, schools, and other institutions, as well as students, will find this book extremely useful. It also appeal to students in surface/colloid chemistry and nanoscience since it offers interesting practical applications to these fundamental sciences.
