Adhesion Aspects in Dentistry

Matinlinna, Kash L. Mittal
June 14, 2017

Modern adhesive dentistry has numerous applications in cariology, as well as in aesthetic and pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, implantology, and orthodontics—in essence, in comprehensive dental care. This unique book addresses various ramifications of adhesion and adhesives in the broad domain...

Applied Surface Thermodynamics, Second Edition

A.W. Neumann, Robert David, Yi Zuo
May 22, 2017

Surface thermodynamics forms the foundation of any meaningful study of capillarity and wetting phenomena. The second edition of Applied Surface Thermodynamics offers a comprehensive state-of-the-art treatment of this critical topic. It provides students and researchers with fundamental knowledge...

Surface and Interfacial Aspects of Cell Adhesion

Alain Carré, Kash L. Mittal
May 22, 2017

Cell adhesion comes into play in almost all domains of life. The range of situations in which it occurs, involving organisms, living tissues, microorganisms or single cells, is endless. Cell adhesion is involved in the binding of a cell to a surface, extracellular matrix, or another cell using cell...

Characterization of Nanocomposites: Technology and Industrial Applications

Frank Abdi, Mohit Garg
April 03, 2017

These days, advanced multiscale hybrid materials are being produced in the industry, studied by universities, and used in several applications. Unlike for macromaterials, it is difficult to obtain the physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of nanomaterials because of the scale....

Magneto Luminous Chemical Vapor Deposition

Hirotsugu Yasuda
March 29, 2017

The magneto luminous chemical vapor deposition (MLCVD) method is the perfect example of the "front-end green process." It employs an entirely new process that expends the minimum amount of materials in gas phase, yields virtually no effluent, and therefore requires no environmental remediation....

David Julian McClements
January 19, 2017

Recent developments in nanoparticle and microparticle delivery systems are revolutionizing delivery systems in the food industry. These developments have the potential to solve many of the technical challenges involved in creating encapsulation, protection, and delivery of active ingredients, such...

Silicone Dispersions

Yihan Liu
December 16, 2016

Silicone is an important class of materials used in applications that range from industrial assembly to everyday consumer products. Silicones are often delivered and synthesized in dispersion forms, the most common being liquid-in-liquid (emulsion), solid-in-liquid (suspension), air-in-liquid (foam...

Colloids in Drug Delivery

Monzer Fanun
November 16, 2016

Colloidal drug delivery systems present a range of therapeutic benefits in the treatment of a number of challenging conditions, allowing researchers to cross barriers that have previously prevented efficient treatment while offering improved and more targeted absorption. Summarizing recent research...

Modeling of Magnetic Particle Suspensions for Simulations

Akira Satoh
November 10, 2016

The main objective of the book is to highlight the modeling of magnetic particles with different shapes and magnetic properties, to provide graduate students and young researchers information on the theoretical aspects and actual techniques for the treatment of magnetic particles in particle-based...

Surface Chemistry and Geochemistry of Hydraulic Fracturing

K. S. Birdi
October 26, 2016

Unique in focus, Surface Chemistry and Geochemistry of Hydraulic Fracturing examines the surface chemistry and phenomena in the hydrofracking process. Under great scrutiny as of late, the physico-chemical properties of hydrofracking are fully detailed and explained. Topics include the...

The Science and Technology of Industrial Water Treatment

Zahid Amjad
October 26, 2016

Mineral scale deposits, corrosion, suspended matter, and microbiological growth are factors that must be controlled in industrial water systems. Research on understanding the mechanisms of these problems has attracted considerable attention in the past three decades as has progress concerning water...

Self-Assembled Organic-Inorganic Nanostructures: Optics and Dynamics

Christian von Borczyskowski, Eduard Zenkevich
October 21, 2016

The current state and perspectives in natural and life sciences are strongly linked to the development of novel complex organic-inorganic materials at various levels of organization, including semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) and QD-based nanostructures with unique optical and physico-chemical...
