This ready reference is the first to collate the interdisciplinary knowledge from materials science, bioengineering and nanotechnology to give an in–depth overview of the topic. As such, it provides broad coverage of combinations between inorganic materials and such key biological structures as proteins, enzymes, DNA, and other biopolymers. With its treatment of various application directions, including bioelectronic interfacing, tissue repair, porous membranes, sensors, nanocontainers, and DNA engineering, this is essential reading for materials engineers, medical researchers, catalytic chemists, biologists, and those working in the biotechnological and semiconductor industries.

Eduardo Ruiz–Hitzky is the director of the Department of Porous Materials and Intercalation

Compounds at the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (CSIC), Spain. His research carried out during the last 30 years has been at the frontier between organic and inorganic chemistry, mainly focusing on nanostructured organic–inorganic hybrids and, more recently, on bio–hybrid composite architectures. Special emphasis has been placed on intercalation and grafting reactions involving READ MORE >
