Multifaceted Biomedical Applications of Graphene Book Excerpt:

This book explains the fundamental characteristics and biofunctionality of graphene-based nanomaterials and provides up-to-date information on the full range of their biomedical applications. An introductory section gives an overview of the chemical composition and physical properties of graphene and its derivatives as well as their potential toxicity and biosafety. Detailed attention is then devoted to the potential of multifunctional graphene-based nanomaterials (MFGNs) to direct the differentiation of stem cells into specific lineages and induce tissue regeneration. Here, individual chapters address the application of MFGNs for the purposes of neurogenesis, osteo- and chrondrogenesis, myogenesis, and wound healing. Subsequent sections focus on the capability of MFGNs as agents for drug delivery, bioimaging, theranostics, and therapeutics as well as their effectiveness as biomimetic platforms for nanobiosensors, biochips, medical devices, and dental applications. The book will be essential reading for graduate students, scientists, and engineers in any of the biomedical research fields in which efforts are being made to utilize novel MFGN-incorporated composite materials and develop functional devices based on them.

Biodegradable Materials and Their Applications Book Excerpt:

BIODEGRADABLE MATERIALS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS Biodegradable materials have ascended in importance in recent years and this book comprehensively discusses all facets and applications in 29 chapters making it a one-stop shop. Biodegradable materials have today become more compulsory because of increased environmental concerns and the growing demand for polymeric and plastic materials. Despite our sincere efforts to recycle used plastic materials, they ultimately tend to enter the oceans, which has led to grave pollution. It is necessary, therefore, to ensure that these wastes do not produce any hazards in the future. This has made an urgency to replace the synthetic material with green material in almost all possible areas of application. Biodegradable Materials and Their Applications covers a wide range of subjects and approaches, starting with an introduction to biodegradable material applications. Chapters focus on the development of various types of biodegradable materials with their applications in electronics, medicine, packaging, thermoelectric generations, protective equipment, films/coatings, 3D printing, disposable bioplastics, agriculture, and other commercial sectors. In biomedical applications, their use in the advancement of therapeutic devices like temporary implants, tissue engineering, and drug delivery vehicles are summarized. Audience Materials scientists, environmental and sustainability engineers, and any other researchers and graduate students associated with biodegradable materials.
