Editorial Reviews

Reports on progress and potential in the accurate tuning of surface properties of polymers for specific applications in biology and medicine. The 22 papers cover polymerization methods for surface modification, polymers treated and deposited by plasma, the characterization of modified surfaces, the surface immobilization of biomolecules, and protein and cell interactions with modified surfaces. Among the hot topics are intelligent surfaces and self-assembly. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
