Overview

An overview of nanotechnology and its potential

The field of nanotechnology is undergoing rapid developments on many fronts. This reference provides a comprehensive review of various nanotechnologies with a view to their biomedical applications. With chapters contributed by distinguished scientists from diverse disciplines, Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology:

  • Reviews recent advances in the designing of various nanotechnologies based on nucleic acids, polymers, biomaterials, and metals
  • Discusses biomedical nanotechnology in areas such as drug and gene delivery
  • Covers advanced aspects of imaging and diagnostics
  • Includes a chapter on the issue of nanotoxicology
Complete with figures and tables, this is a practical, hands-on reference book for researchers in pharmaceutical and biotech industries, biomedical engineers, pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacologists, and materials scientists as well as for the policymakers who need to understand the potential of nanotechnology. It is also an excellent resource book for graduate-level students in pharmaceutical sciences, biomedical engineering, and other fields in which nanotechnology is playing an increasingly important role.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
About the editor:

"Dr. Tadros is a very well recognized individual in the surface chemistry community and is known to write well."
(Prof. Krister Holmberg, Chalmers University, Goteborg, Sweden)

"The author is a well-known scientist in this field with a long experience in colloid science."
(Henkel KGaA, Dusseldorf, Germany)

"Dr. Tadros is well-known in the field of colloid science. High quality can be expected."
(University of Bayreuth, Germany)

"Professor Tadros is a well-known expert on the topic. Because of his industrial experience it might be possible to close the gap between fundamentals and the relevance and applications in the practice."
(Dr. Oetter, BASF AG, Ludwigshafen, Germany)

"Dr. Tadros is a well-known scientist in emulsion and rheology science who can write about fundamentals and applications of surfactants."
(Yokohama National University, Japan)

Meet the Author

After finishing his PhD at Alexandria University, Tharwat Tadros was appointed lecturer in Physical Chemistry (1962-1966) at the same University. Between 1966 and 1969, he spent a sabbatical at the Agricultural University of Wageningen and T.N.O in Delft, the Netherlands. Thereafter he worked at I.C.I. and ZENECA until 1994, where he researched various fields of surfactants, emulsions, suspensions, microemulsions, wetting spreading and adhesion, and rheology. During that period he was also appointed visiting professor at Imperial College London, Bristol University and Reading University. In 1992, he was elected President of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Science. Since leaving ZENECA, Dr Tadros has worked as a consultant for various industries and also given several courses in his specialized field. He is the recipient of two medals from the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK, and has more than 250 scientific papers to his name.
