Research and Markets has added the book "Nanocomposite Particles for Bio-Applications: Materials and Bio-Interfaces" book to its existing portfolio.

The book offers a brief overview of the method of synthesis and the characteristics of nanocomposite particles with an insight into a range of bio-applications. The chemical design of nanocomposite particles, their characteristics and what they are made of as well as bio-interfaces associated with the clinical diagnosis field and drug delivery techniques are covered in the book.

The topics explained include particles comprising a polymer matrix with scattered inorganic nanophases and bio-functionalized nanomaterials.

The salient features of the book include the fact that there are very few books that deal with nanocomposite particles’ bio-applications and this is one. The book includes contribution from experts with globally published research work. The topics are explained with suitable figures and there are sufficient references accompanying each chapter.

The major topics covered include a brief overview from nanoparticles to nanocomposites, polymers for biomedical applications, biofunctionalization of inorganic nanoparticles, silica-based materials and many more.

The book offers a very good outline on the biological and chemical applications of different types of nanoparticles and their composites. Beginning from the basic science of preparation and surface functionalization, the book follows a precise and instructive approach, thus covering essential topics that are connected with nanoparticle applications in medicine and biology. Fundamental principles, comprehensive insights and potential applications of the explained systems are covered in the chapters. Comprehensive references ensure that the interested reader can refer to the most relevant literature. The book is a good reference for students as well as scientists who are pursuing research in the nanotechnology field.
