Overview

The new book series 'Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences' is the first comprehensive source on the topics where materials science and life sciences meet on the nanoscale. Each volume provides a concise overview of the underlying nanotechnologies for the design, creation and characterization of biomedical applications, collating the many articles found in the relevant specialized journals but as yet unseen by those working in other disciplines.

Written by international experts describing the various facets of nanofabrication, the ten volumes of this single source of information cover the complete range of synthetic methods, tools and techniques being developed towards medical, biological and cybernetic applications.

This volume covers the synthetic and materials aspects of instilling biocompatibility into nanomaterials with properties desirable for advanced medical and biological applications.

Essential reading for anyone working in the various related disciplines: from medicine and biology through chemistry, materials science and physics to engineering.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The present book ... presents an excellent collection of chapters outlining new developments in the area from the point of view of materials science. ... The editor succeeded in amalgamating the contributions of different authors in a coherent book that has actually become an 'encyclopedia' of biofunctionalized nanomaterials. This book is the first volume in a comprehensive ten volume series on 'Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences', which is going to be an encyclopedic database for bionanotechnology and bionanomedicine. ... an excellent collection of the material under a single cover that is certainly convenient for the reader. ... Overall, the editor and authors have done a good job, resulting in a book that can be read with interest by the broad scientific community. This book deserves a respected place on the desk of a student, professor, or engineer, who will equally benefit from reading its content." small

"...it is to be hoped that the editor, authors, and publisher will succeed in attracting many interested readers to the series Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences, as an up-to-date collection of articles on this theme..." Angewandte Chemie
