Biomimetic Nanoceramics in Clinical Use
From Materials to Applications
by María Vallet-Regí

Biomimetic Nanoceramics in Clinical Use deals with 'new bioceramics' for 'new applications'. Current and future applications are considered in terms of chemical composition, structure and properties.

It explains the processes that (from the point of view of solid state and sol-gel chemistry) lead to better bone implants and other medical devices.

Biomimetic Nanoceramics in Clinical Use is structured to make it useful for students of biomaterials, but also as a reference for specialists interested in specific topics. Didactic figures and schemes make it easy for under-graduates to understand and the extended bibliography is indispensable for researchers.
