Description of Nanoscience and Cultural Heritage


The book Nanoscience and Cultural Heritage form an excellent blueprint and a welcome step in bringing nanosciences to the tangible cultural heritage community deriving from archaeological sites and artifacts, collections in museums, masterpieces, buildings, and monuments. It gives a good overview of the uniqueness of cultural heritage systems that need to be studied by Physico-chemical sciences in an interdisciplinary way, with the help of specialists of pure disciplines (physics, chemistry, material sciences) associated with those practicing interface disciplines such as archaeometry, and conservation science. This complexity of approaches to investigate a large number of objects, with a large heterogeneity at different scales, explains why the nano aspects of cultural heritage systems have only appeared fairly recently. Indeed, Nanoscience and Cultural Heritage book is the first attempt to review how nanoscience is bringing new insights into this area.
I find the ambitious approach to cover the whole value chain from the importance of nano aspects in ancient technologies of cultural heritage systems, through nanotechnologies and analytical strategies to characterise cultural heritage objects, up to the stage of their conservation and protection, in addition to new technologies, as well as the implications for societies including environmental aspects, very impressively. The book Nanoscience and Cultural Heritage cover all topics from nanoparticles, nanomaterials, and nanocomponents, from fundamentals of composition, structure and properties to nanosyntheses and processing aspects, characterization, analytical techniques, and modelling. It also covers the conservation and protection of cultural heritage with nanomaterials, e.g., aspects such as corrosion, de-acidification, etc., and cleaning and restoring.
The book Nanoscience and Cultural Heritage introduces a large panel of prospect developments, largely due to the fact that the use of suitable nano-analytical methods within a multiscale investigation, is still in its infancy and also because possible applications in specific material science (i.e., bio-inspired materials) and conservation methods, motivate education and offers an emerging field of research and innovation. It is a source of information and pinpoints new ideas and lists a large number of recommendations for all those involved in cultural heritage and restoration of historical buildings; finally, it provides an enormous potential for societal and economic benefits, including job creation.
