Colloid Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Colloidal Biomolecules, Biomaterials, and Biomedical Applications

edited by Abdelhamid Elaissari

Attesting to the recognized versatility of colloidal polymers and heightening estimations of their potential in bioscience applications, Colloidal Biomolecules, Biomaterials, and Biomedical Applications is an authoritative presentation of established and newfound techniques promising to revolutionize the areas of biomedical diagnostics, therapeutics, pharmaceutics, and drug delivery.

This exceptional book will:

  • examine the utilization of magnetic latexes in the biomedical area
  • investigate physical studies of the agglutination of sensitive latexes
  • consider the body-antigen reaction and issues of physical adsorption, covalent coupling, and colloidal stability in latex immunoagglutination assays
  • assess biospecific interactions between polymer particles and viruses
  • explore the use of monodispersed latex particles for the isolation and immobilization of proteins and nucleic acids
  • study the adsorption and desorption of proteic materials into thermally sensitive colloidal particles
  • inspect the conformation of DNA-like polyelectrolytes in the presence of oppositely charged polymers
  • record pharmaceutical and therapeutic applications for preformed polymers in the elaboration of colloidal particles
  • trace advances in alkylcyanoacrylate polymerization chemistry culminating in the creation of biodegradable nanosystems and nanoparticles for cancer therapy
  • analyze strategies of entrapment and attachment of bioactive compounds to poly(Σ-caprolactone) and poly(lactide) microspheres
  • indicate benefits to drug delivery attainable through supercritical fluid process production of polymer particles
  • and much more!
