Overview

The Series
The new book series "Nanomaterials for the Life Sciences", successor to the highly acclaimed series "Nanotechnology for the Life Sciences"!, provides an in-depth overview of all nanomaterial types and their uses in the life sciences. Each volume is dedicated to a specific material class and covers fundamentals, synthesis and characterization strategies, structure-property relationships and biomedical applications. The new series brings nanomaterials to the life scientists and life science to the materials scientists so that synergies are seen and developed to the fullest.
Written by international experts of various facets of this exciting field of research, the ten volumes of this single source of information comprehensively cover the complete range of nanomaterials for medical, biological and cybernetic applications. The series is aimed at scientists of the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, materials science, physics, bioengineering, and medicine, together with cell biology, biomedical engineering, pharmaceutical chemistry, and toxicology, both in academia and fundamental research as well as in pharmaceutical companies.

Volume 1: Metallic Nanomaterials
Volume 1 focuses on metallic nanomaterials synthesized from Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Palladium. Synthesis, characterization and the application of nanomaterials in the field of life science are discussed in detail.
