Description

Materials for Biomedical Engineering: Bioactive Materials, Properties and Applications introduces the reader to a broad range of the different types of bioactive materials used in biomedical engineering. All the main types of bioactive materials are discussed, with an emphasis placed on their synthesis, properties, performance, and potential for biomedical applications. Key chapters on modeling and surface modification and methods provide the step-by-step information needed by researchers. Important applications of bioactive materials, such as drug delivery, cancer therapy and clinical dentistry are also highlighted in detail. Final sections look at future perspectives for bioactive materials in biomedical engineering.

Key Features

  • Provides a knowledge of the range of bioactive materials available, enabling the reader to make optimal materials selection decisions
