Summary This Special Topic Volume is a result from contribution of thirty seven experts from the international scientific community in the respective field of research. It thoroughly covers various engineering applications of nanomaterials in various fields such as catalysis, sun protective materials, organic synthesis, sensor, coatings, energy efficient hear transfer, thermoplastics, waste water treatment, electronic component, solid oxide fuel cell and photocatalysis. It gives a comprehensive picture of nanoscience and nanomaterials. This volume will provide the latest and in-depth coverage on nanomaterials and their applications. Contributors from a wide range of sciences describe how science and engineering at the nanometer scale is being used in a number of fields. The topics include nano-sized and nano-crystalline sulfated zirconia solid acid catalysts for organic synthesis, incorporating modified nano-montmorillonite in polyurethane coating base on acrylic copolymer and trimer of isophorone diisocyanate, thermal conductivity of nanofluids, the stability of nanofluids, solid oxide fuel cell as a future source of power and heat generation, and carbon doping to enhance the photofunctions of dye-encapsulated photocatalytic activity of nano-titanium oxide
