Porous Silicon for Biomedical Applications (Woodhead by Hélder A. Santos

By Hélder A. Santos

Porous silicon has a number of homes, making it perfect for drug supply, melanoma treatment, and tissue engineering. Porous Silicon for Biomedical Applications offers a entire overview of this rising nanostructured and biodegradable biomaterial.

Chapters partly one concentrate on the basics and houses of porous silicon for biomedical purposes, together with thermal houses and stabilization, photochemical and nonthermal chemical amendment, protein-modified porous silicon movies, and biocompatibility of porous silicon. half discusses purposes in bioimaging and sensing, and explores the optical homes of porous silicon fabrics; in vivo imaging evaluate and radiolabelling of porous silicon; and nanoporous silicon biosensors for DNA sensing and for micro organism detection. ultimately, half 3 highlights drug loading and characterization of porous silicon fabrics, tumor concentrating on and imaging, and porous silicon scaffolds for useful tissue engineering, stem mobilephone progress, and osteodifferentiation.

With its acclaimed editor and foreign staff of professional members, Porous Silicon for Biomedical Applications is a technical source and essential advisor for all these focused on the learn, improvement, and alertness of porous silicon and different biomaterials, whereas offering a finished advent for college students and teachers drawn to the field.

  • Comprehensive assessment of porous silicon targeting the fabrication and homes of this rising material
  • Specifically discusses drug supply and orthopedic functions of porous silicon
  • Aimed at fabrics researchers and scientists within the biomaterials – fairly these serious about drug supply and orthopedics
