Polymer Gels: Fundamentals and Biomedical Applications
Kluwer Academic Pub, 1991 - Medical - 345 pages
Artificial chemomechanical systems through the use of polymer gels are emerging as materials mimicking basic processes previously confined to the biological world. Main topics are grouped into: Fundamentals with characterization of gel structure and studies on gel mechanical properties; Biologicals where properties and excitability of nerve cytoplasm are descibed together with the preparation and characterization of gels tailored for implantation into the human body; Separation which addressses new materials and techniques for separation and ultrafiltration technology; Sensors and actuators emphasises the development of compliant muscle-like actuators; Drug delivery systems.
