Ideal as a graduate textbook, this title is aimed at helpingdesign effective biomaterials, taking into account the complexinteractions that occur at the interface when a synthetic materialis inserted into a living system.  Surface reactivity,biochemistry, substrates, cleaning, preparation, and coatingsare presented, with numerous case studies and applicationsthroughout.

 Highlights include:

  • Starts with concepts and works up to real-life applicationssuch as implantable devices, medical devices, prosthetics, and drugdelivery 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 processingstrategies

Keywords: Biomaterials,

Biosurfaces, biomaterials, materials, engineering topics
