Biomimetic and bioinspired nanomaterials
(Nanowerk News) These ten volumes provide an excellent, 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 strategies, structure-property relationships, material behaviour finetuning, biological effects and applications in the life sciences.
All important material classes are covered: metallic, metal oxide, magnetic, carbon, polymeric, composite and semiconducting nanomaterials as well as nanostructured surfaces and films. It serves as a major reference work in the field that brings together pertinent knowledge formerly widely spread out over many different sources.
