Advanced Materials Proceeding an IAAM’s official journal, offer a well-rounded snapshot of prominent, and notable contribution for worldwide readers engaged in materials researchers. Due to its model of Diamond Open Access (DOA), where participants grass-roots efforts on a variety of materials issues published significantly to approve the forefront aim of ‘Advancement of materials to sustainable and green world’.
The current decade witnessed a rapid evolution of Nanobubbles Technology, which has an application prospect in many fields, such as biomedical imaging, hydrogen storage, water treatment, cleaning and promoting the metabolism of living organisms etc. Nanobubble is known as a long-lasting gas-containing cavity in the aqueous solution and these unique properties could be explained by the low internal pressure and surface tension. The cover photo the current January-March 2020 issue of Advanced Materials Proceedings is dedicated to the 26th anniversary of the first hypothesis for the existence of nanobubbles, reported in 1994.
The first article of the issue is authored by Nidhi Chauhan and Sandra Afflerbach from Amity Institute of Nanotechnology (AINT), Amity University, India and Institute of Building and Materials Chemistry, University of Siegen, Germany, respectively. This article described about the flagship congress assembly organized by the International Association of Advanced Materials. These prominent assemblies “Advanced Materials Congress, AMC”, began by IAAM in the year 2011 to provide a prestigious platform to the active and upcoming materials science researchers, scientists, professionals, and business giants where they could come together and discuss the latest trends and developments in the scientific world. Going through the year 2020, IAAM had already organized as many as 32 assemblies of Advanced Materials Congress, which were attended by more than 15,000 delegates from 100+ countries with the participation of around 2500 leading organization from both academia and industry. Moreover, the organization intends to focus these international assemblies on all different kinds of subject areas of advanced materials science, engineering and technology.Citation of the article: Adv.

The second article of the issue is authored by authors S. Suresh et al. In this article authors explained about the p-Toludinium fumarate (PTF) a potential organic single crystal that was grown by slow evaporation solution growth technique. Single crystal X-ray diffraction study was used to compute the unit cell parameters. Here dielectric constant (ε') and dielectric loss (tan δ) of PTF crystal were studied and third order nonlinear refractive index (n2) and third order nonlinear absorption coefficient (β) were estimated by Z-scan technique.

The forth article of the issue was focused on the conventional flood cooling method, which fails to minimize the heat generation in the cutting areas and make adverse effect on the environment during machining process. This article is reported by V. Anandan et al. This article optimized results confirm that environment and feed rate are dominant factors and the environment influence is about 84.6%, followed by feed rate at 10.1%. Cryogenic MQL has better effectiveness compared to conventional cooling. The modified TOPSIS method is found to be more effective in machining problems.

The fifth article discussed about the mechanical behavior of AMMC based reinforced hybrid composites with various volume fractions of Sic (3, 6, 9, 12, 15) and Gr (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Here Stir casting method was adapted for manufacturing the various samples. This article is reported by K. Velavan et al. Further, this article explained the analysis that increase in strength and hardness of the samples with greater percentage compositions of reinforcements. Here composite with enhanced mechanical property was identified and the test results were verified to establish the alignment of the composite with a wide range of industrial and automotive applications.

The seventh article of the issue presented the details about a novel random copolyester Poly(1,4-dithiane-2,5-diol Succinate–co–1,2-ethane diol Succinate) PDES containing sulphur atom, which was synthesised by direct melt polycondensation method using 1,4- dithiane-2,5-diol as a special monomer, succinic acid, and 1,3 ethane diol with Titanium tetra isopropoxide as catalyst. This article was authored by B. Kalpana and R. Nanthini. This article explained that the in Vitro cytotoxicity against Normal (Vero cell line) and cancer (A549 Lung cancer cell line) by MTT Assay, Antioxidant activity by Dot-Blot/DPPH scavenging Assay and Antimicrobial by Well diffusion method proved that the synthesised copolyester have immense biological properties and could be used in biomedical application.

The eighth article reported by M. Priya et al. This study aimed to investigate the Mannitol single crystal, which was grown by slow evaporation technique and irradiated by gamma radiation. Here laser damage threshold was calculated for pure and irradiated Mannitol using laser source. The second harmonic generation of pure and gamma irradiated Mannitol were studied using Nd:YAG laser source and observed that SHG intensity decreases with increasing dose of gamma radiation.
The nineth article of the issue was focused on a new organic SHG active salt 3-Nitroanilinium L-tartrate m-nitroaniline (MLM), which was synthesized and optically good single crystals and grown by solvent evaporation solution growth method at room temperature.

Further, this article explained that the structure of the crystal identified by single crystal XRD analyses and it belongs to monoclinic crystal system with polar space group P21. Here the relative second harmonic generation activity of the title crystal was confirmed by the modified Kurtz-Perry powder test and it was found that the title crystal has 0.5 times second harmonic generation output than that of KDP.
The tenth article described about the third order nonlinear optical semi-organic potassium hydrogen maleate single crystal was grown by Sangaranarayanan-Ramasamy (SR) method. This article is reported by C. Amirtha Kumar et al. Further, this article explained that the surface laser damage threshold value of the grown crystal was measured by using Nd:YAG laser. Z-scan technique was employed to observe the third-order nonlinear optical property of the grown crystal.
