About this Book

Bringing Nanomaterials to Life

Combining the two highly acclaimed reference works – Nanotechnologies for the Life Sciences and Nanomaterials for the Life Sciences - this comprehensive online source provides a unique perspective to the fascinating field where nanoscale materials and living matter meet.

This cross-disciplinary major reference work:

  • Offers an in-depth overview of all nanomaterials and their synthesis methods and nanoscale technologies and fabrication methods in materials science towards life sciences.
  • Covers the complete range of synthetic methods, tools and techniques being developed towards medical, biological, and cybernetic applications.
  • Reviews existing technologies as well as current developments.
  • Includes tailor-made nanomaterials with widespread new opportunities and application fields in biology, medicine, and pharmacy.

Written by and for scientists and engineers from all the disciplines involved, it also provides essential awareness of life science applications to materials researchers and, vice versa, of the performance of nanomaterials to the life sciences in academia, fundamental research and industrial development and for all those interested in applying "nano thinking" in the life sciences.
