This latest volume in the Advances in Chemical Engineering series, is a contemporary analysis of the preparation, structure and properties of
biomaterials with emphasis on the molecular design and material/polymer
interactions. The book addresses cell-biomaterials adhesion,
biomaterials and gene therapy, protein adsorption , platelet and white
cell activation processes, molecular design and surface modification of
novel biomaterials.
