Metal and Ceramic Biomaterials: Volume II: Strength and Surface

Ducheyne
December 08, 2017

The understanding of the in vivo performance of synthetic materials is largely dependent upon a profound knowledge of the properties of the materials in question. Analogous to materials science in its broadest sense, the basis for biomaterials science is formed by microstructural there. It is...

Macromolecular Materials

Hastings
December 08, 2017

This volume deals with some basic considerations of structure and its relation to function. After outlining some basic principles in the first chapter, including manufacturing effects, structural determination is discussed in detail. This is important since adequate characterization in terms of...

Synthesis of Biocomposite Materials: Chemical and Biological Modifications of Natural Polymers

Yukio Imanishi
December 08, 2017

Biomaterials have been used for artificial-organ and bioreactor materials, and have gained importance for enhancement of human welfare. This book summarizes research devoted to creating useful biofunctional materials by chemical modification of natural polymers, and forecasts future development....

Physical Sensors for Biomedical Applications

Michael R. Neuman
November 29, 2017

The material in this book is based upon a two-day workshop on solid state physical sensors for biomedical applications held in Huron, Ohio, December 8-9, 1977. The individual sections of the book are based upon presentations made by the authors at the workshop. Each presentation was transcribed and...

Bioceramics Calcium Phosphate

K. de Groot
November 29, 2017

The first chapters are fundamental, in that the physical chemistry of calcium phosphate salts is discussed, along with mineralization (with emphasis on teeth) and remodelling of mineralized tissues. Thereafter follows a treatment of the influence of implants o surrounding hard tissues. This topic...

Indwelling and Implantable Pressure Transducers

D.G. Flemming
November 29, 2017

In the first two chapters of this book there is information about the needs and potential applications of indwelling transducers both present and past, and will go into detail about many topics such as the fundaments of blood pressure transducers, studies of the intestinal motility and clinical...

Geochemistry and Health (1988): Proceedings of the Second International Symposium

J.N. Martin
October 12, 2017

This volume comprises the proceedings of a three-day meeting held at the Royal Society, London, UK on 22,23,24 April 1987. The combined second International Symposium on Geochemistry and Health and 5th European Meeting of the Society for Environmental Geochemistry and Health was sponsored by the...

Biogeochemistry of Trace Metals: Advances In Trace Substances Research

Domy C. Adriano
July 13, 2017

Biogeochemistry of Trace Metals is a compendium of the most recent information available on the effects of trace metals in soil quality and its potential threat on the transfer of these contaminants to consumers. Most of the chapters in the book were presented as papers during the First...

Interfacial Chemistry of Rocks and Soils

Noemi M. Nagy, Jozsef Konya
June 16, 2017

Knowledge of the basic interactions that take place between geological materials and different substances is the first step in understanding the effects of adsorption and other interfacial processes on the quality of rocks and soils, and on driving these processes towards a beneficial or neutral...

Rare Earth Elements in Ultramafic and Mafic Rocks and their Minerals: Minor and Accessory Minerals

Felix P. Lesnov
April 16, 2017

This book presents an extensive overview of literature published globally in the last decades on REE distribution in minor and accessory minerals from various types of ultramafic, mafic, and other plutonic rocks. It is a continuation of the author’s work published in 2010: Rare Earth Elements in...

Dynamics and Bioavailability of Heavy Metals in the Rootzone

H. Magdi Selim
March 29, 2017

Concerns regarding heavy metal contamination in terrestrial ecosystems have prompted increasing efforts on limiting their bioavailability in the root zone. The complexity of the hydrologic system gives rise to the need for understanding the fate and transport of trace elements in the...
