Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
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.
- 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
Quatrième de couverture
A multidisciplinary approach that elucidates contrasting requirements of materials in their interfaces with the biological environment
Biomaterials can generally be produced either in nature or synthesized in the laboratory using a variety of chemical approaches utilizing metallic components or ceramics. They are used every day in dental applications, surgery, and drug delivery in which they perform, augment, or replace a natural function. Taking into account the complex interactions that occur at the interface when a synthetic material is inserted into a living system, Biosurfaces: A Materials Science and Engineering Perspective aims to gear students, scientists, researchers and other experts in the field with the tools to design effective biomaterials.
Building upon the real–life applications, Biosurfaces: A Materials Science and Engineering Perspective features:
+A bird s eye overview of the critical requirements of materials, followed by a description of the fundamental mechanisms of protein adsorption, platelet and cell–adhesion
+Case studies on mechanical properties and laser engineering of surfaces that fulfill the critical requirements in constructing successful implants are included
+Discussion of the concept of non–wetting, required especially for anti–biofouling surfaces, via super–hydrophobicity
+Views on the social, ethical, and future issues associated with biomaterials design and implementation
Ideal as a graduate textbook, this monograph provides a multidisciplinary approach to the paradigm of biosurfaces and biomaterials through experts working in the arena of interfacing materials with bio–engineering. It is also an invaluable tool for the fields of biomedical engineering, biology, mechanical device design, and medical sciences.
