Inorganic Micro- and Nanostructures brings recent and specific insight into current progress and new perspectives for inorganic micro- and nano-particles. The main focus of this book is on biomedical applications of these materials and how their biological properties are linked to the various synthesis methods and the source of raw materials. Recent information regarding optimized synthesis methods to obtain improved nano- and microparticles for biomedical use, as well as the most important biomedical applications of these materials, such as diagnosis and therapy of cancer, are highlighted in detail.

Key Features

  • A valuable resource of recent scientific progress, highlighting the most well-known applications of inorganic micro- and nanostructures in bioengineering
  • Novel opportunities and ideas for developing or improving technologies in composites by companies, biomedical industries, and others
  • Features at least 50% of references from the last 2-3 years


Academic and industrial researchers and postgraduate students working in nanotechnology, materials science, biomaterials and biomedical engineering, especially those in small research institutions in developing countries who don’t have access to major journals
