abstract The present volume, “New applications of nanomaterials” belongs to the “Micro and nano engineering” series, coordinated by Acad. Dan Dascalu, and edited by the Publishing House of the Romanian Academy. This volume consists of the extended versions of the most relevant papers selected from the 12th edition of the Annual National Seminar for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Bucharest, May 13th, 2013). The papers published in this volume address a large area of very interesting applications among which there can be emphasized the environmental ones: AuNPs/LDHS assemblies as nanoarchitectures for environmental photocatalysts; possible environmental applications of graphene-based nanomaterials; functionalized porous alginate beads for environmental decontamination. Some medical applications are also present, the effect of titanate nanotubes against moderately halophilic bacteria being one of them. Applications of nanomaterials in electronics include nanoscale diodes without p-n junctions and last but not at least, nanomaterials for restoration and conservation of historical monuments offer new solutions for preserving the authenticity of the historical heritage. Another group of researchers at the Seminar presented new routes for synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials which can be the seeds for new applications in the near future.
