Biosurfaces : A Materials Science and Engineering Perspective, Hardback Book

Biosurfaces : A Materials Science and Engineering Perspective Hardback


Ideal as a graduate textbook, this title is aimed at helping design effective biomaterials, taking into account the complex interactions that occur at the interface when a synthetic material is inserted into a living system. Surface reactivity, biochemistry, substrates, cleaning, preparation, and coatings are presented, with numerous case studies and applications throughout.

Highlights include: * Starts with concepts and works up to real-life applications such as implantable devices, medical devices, prosthetics, and drug delivery technology * Addresses surface reactivity, requirements for surface coating, cleaning and preparation techniques, and characterization * Discusses the biological response to coatings * Addresses biomaterial-tissue interaction * Incorporates nanomechanical properties and processing strategies
