Nanotechnologies for Solubilization and Delivery in Foods, Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals from DEStech Publications

Beginning with the basics of surfactant chemistry and micellization, this book presents a range of nanotechnology strategies for controlling colloidal and polymeric structures for the solubilization and targeted delivery of food nutrients and pharmaceuticals. The book demonstrates how vehicles for delivering bioactive ingredients through a variety of oral, transdermal, buccal and mucosal routes, can be synthesized by nanolevel manipulation of colloidal systems, proteins, peptides, liquid crystalline phases, organogels and dendrimers.

Nanomaterials for Chemical Sensors and Biotechnology

This textbook is intended to serve as a reference guide to the interdisciplinary fields of nanomaterials, sensors and biotechnology. It demonstrates functional applications of nanotechnology in diverse areas such as environmental sensing and space habitation, to medical diagnostics and tissue regeneration.

Microdrops and Digital Microfluidics

Engineers, scientists, and developers in biotechnology, nanotechnology, MEMS, and pharmaceuticals. This book will also be an excellent text for a Masters level course in physics and biotechnology.

Emerging Nanotechnologies for Manufacturing

Nanotechnology is a technology on the verge of commercialization. In this important work, an unrivalled team of international experts provides an exploration of the emerging nanotechnologies that are poised to make the nano-revolution a reality in the manufacturing sector. From their different perspectives, the contributors explore how developments in nanotechnology are transforming areas as diverse as medicine, advanced materials, energy, electronics and agriculture.

BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology

BIOMEMS AND BIOMEDICAL NANOTECHNOLOGY, edited by Mauro Ferrari, comprises the first comprehensive reference devoted to all aspects of research in the diagnostic and therapeutic applications of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), microfabrication, and nanotechnology. Contributions report on fundamental and applied investigations of the material science, biochemistry, and physics of biomedical microdevices.

Microsystems for Bioelectronics

Microsystems for Bioelectronics considers physical principles and trends in extremely scaled autonomous microsystems for biomedical applications. It provides a physics-based assessment of the ultimate potential of miniaturization technologies. In particular, fundamental scaling limits for energy sources, sensors, computation and communication subsystems are developed

Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology

Since 2004 the Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology has established itself as the definitive reference in the nanoscience and nanotechnology area. It integrates the knowledge from nanofabrication, nanodevices, nanomechanics, Nanotribology, materials science, and reliability engineering in just one volume. Beside the presentation of nanostructures, micro/nanofabrication, and micro/nanodevices, special emphasis is on scanning probe microscopy, nanotribology and nanomechanics, molecularly thick films, industrial applications and microdevice reliability, and on social aspects.

Engineered Nanopores for Bioanalytical Applications

Engineered Nanopores for Bioanalytical Applications is the first to explore both the development and application of nanopores with practical analytical applications as the primary focus. These nanoscale analytical techniques have exciting potential as they can be used in applications such as DNA sequencing, DNA fragment sizing, DNA/protein binding, and protein/protein binding.

Microfluidic Cell Culture Systems

Microfluidic Cell Culture Systems will cover materials, fabrications, device design, microfluidic systems for engineered tissue and in vitro microfluidic cell culture systems.
