  • Covers the fundamentals of the structure, chemistry, synthesis and properties of both natural and synthetic calcium phosphate biomaterials and their future use in biomedical engineering and medicine
  • Reviews the latest advances in using calcium phosphates in bone regeneration and reconstructive surgery
  • Discusses the latest generation of regenerative biomaterials with an integrated perspective combining both research and clinical issues
  • Allows biomaterials researchers to better understand the clinical targets and requirements for regenerative medicine
  • Edited by a respected scientist who pioneered calcium phosphate and bioceramic research over 40 years ago, with contributions from scientists and clinicians who have discovered the applications of calcium phosphate in medicine

Advances in Calcium Phosphate Biomaterials presents a comprehensive, state-of-the-art review of the latest advances in developing calcium phosphate biomaterials and their applications in medicine. It covers the fundamental structures, synthesis methods, characterization methods, and the physical and chemical properties of calcium phosphate biomaterials, as well as the synthesis and properties of calcium phosphate-based biomaterials in regenerative medicine and their clinical applications. The book brings together these new concepts, mechanisms and methods in contributions by both young and “veteran” academics, clinicians, and researchers to forward the knowledge and expertise on calcium phosphate and related materials. Accordingly, the book not only covers the fundamentals but also opens new avenues for meeting future challenges in research and clinical applications.
