9781849735667: Nanoscience for the Conservation of Works of Art: RSC (Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Series)

Understanding the chemistry behind works of art and heritage materials presents an opportunity to apply scientific techniques to their conservation and restoration. Manipulation of materials at the nanoscale affords greater accuracy and minimal disturbance to the original work, while efficiently combating the affects of time and environment.


This book meets the growing demand for an all-encompassing handbook to instruct on the use of today's science on mankind's cultural heritage. The editors have pioneered modern techniques in art conservation over the last four decades, and have brought together expertise from across the globe. Each chapter presents the theoretical background to the topic in question, followed by practical information on its application and relevant case studies.


Introductory chapters present the science behind the physical composition of art materials. Four chapters explore various cleaning techniques now, followed by four chapters describing the application of inorganic nanomaterials. Each chapter is fully referenced to the primary literature and offers suggestions for further reading.


Professional conservators and scientists alike will find this essential reading, as will postgraduate students in the fields of materials and colloid science, art restoration and nanoscience.

Book Description:

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.

About the Author:

Piero Baglioni is currently Full Professor of Physical Chemistry and lecturer of Physical Chemistry of Disperse Systems and Interfaces at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Florence. He has been appointed as Visiting Scientist/Professor by several laboratories such as the Department of Chemistry of the University of Houston, the Weizmann Institute, the Collège de France, and M.I.T. He is the Director of the National Consortium for Nanosystems (CSGI) and in the Advisory Board and reviewer of several international journals and International organization (European Science Foundation (ESF), National Science Foundation (NSF)). He is member of the scientific board of several national and international Institutions, industries (Italcementi, FAST, HMI, etc.) and Journals, coordinator of several National and European Union’s projects.


David Chelazzi is a research fellow at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Florence. His research interests and expertise include the consolidation of wall painting, cleaning of artworks, deacification of paper, wood and canvas. Recent work has been concerned with the synthesis and characterisation of nanoparticles for cultural heritage conservation and nanostrcutured cleaning fluids.
