Advanced Nanomaterials for Biological Applications

Description

Fundamentally, nanotechnology is dependent on the existence or the supply of new nanomaterials that form the prerequisite for any further progress in this new and interdisciplinary area of science and technology. Evidently, nanomaterials feature specific properties that are characteristic of this class of materials and which are based on surface and quantum effects. Clearly, the control of composition, size, shape, and morphology of nanomaterials is an essential cornerstone for the development and application of nanomaterials and nanoscale devices. The complex functions of nanomaterials in devices and systems require further advancement in the preparation and modification of nanomaterials. Such advanced nanomaterials have attracted tremendous interest during recent years and will form the basis for further progress in this area. Thus, this special issue provides a detailed account of the present status of nanomaterials and highlights the recent developments which cover the novel and important aspects of these materials and their biological applications. It also presents emerging developments in nanotechnology in particular their application in biology and medicine.
