Reviews the latest developments of the surface treatments for biomedical applications in relation to electrochemical science and technology
Details new concepts that may have significant implications on future practical applications
Appeals to scientists, researchers, engineers and students alike
Various metallic or non-metallic surfaces are frequently treated by electrochemical methods (e.g. electrodeposition, electroless deposition, anodization, passivation, etc.) in order to achieve a desirable property important for biomedical applications. Applications include orthopedic or dental implants, dressings for wound healing and different skin diseases, and surfaces for the prevention of bio-film formation or corrosion inhibition in biological media.
The aim of this volume of Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry is to review developments in surface treatments for biomedical applications in relation to electrochemical science and technology. Scientists, engineers, people moving in the field, and advanced students will find these review articles valuable for future applications.
From reviews of previous volumes:
“This long-standing series continues its tradition of offering high quality reviews of established and emerging subject areas, together with the less common aspects of electrochemical science... [and]... deserves a place in electrochemistry libraries and should prove useful to electrochemists and related workers.”
—Chemistry and Industry
“Extremely well-referenced and very readable.... Maintains the overall high standards of the series.”
—Journal of the American Chemical Society
“Continues the valuable service that has been rendered by the Modern Aspects series.”
