Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A significant proportion of modern medical technology has been developed through biomimetics, that is biologically inspired by studying pre-existing functioning systems in nature. Typical biomimetically inspired biomaterials include nano-biomaterials, smart biomaterials, hybrid biomaterials, nano-biocomposites, hierarchically porous biomaterials and tissue scaffolds. This important book summarizes some of the key research in this important field.

Part one is devoted to the biomimetics of biomaterials themselves while part two provides overviews and case studies of tissue engineering applications from a biomimetics perspective. Both parts off a strong focus on cutting edge biomimetically-inspired biomaterials including chitin, hydrogels, calcium phosphates, biopolymers and anti-thrombotic coatings. Since many scaffolds for skin tissue engineering are biomimetically inspired, there are also chapters on the biomimetics of tissue engineering in the repair of bone, skin, cartilage, soft tissue and specific organs.

Synopsis:

Researchers and materials scientists are turning to biomimetics as a way to meet the needs for biocompatible, long lasting materials. Biomimetic biomaterials are synthetic materials designed to emulate the natural phenomena from the animal and plant kingdoms. Recent research has revealed that they can have applications in soft and hard tissue engineering, adhesives and coatings. The editor and contributors provide a thorough overview of the structure and applications of these novel materials. They discuss the structure and surfaces of biomimetic materials and review the biomedical applications.
