About this book

This book offers a comprehensive treatment of the molecular design, characterization, and physical chemistry of soft interfaces. At the same time, the book aims to encourage the fabrication of functional materials including biomaterials. During the past few decades there has been steady growth in soft-interface science, and that growth has been especially rapid in the twenty-first century. The field is interdisciplinary because it involves chemistry, polymer science, materials science, physical chemistry, and biology. Based on the increasing interdisciplinary nature of undergraduate and graduate programs, the primary goal of this present work is to serve as a comprehensive resource for senior-level undergraduates and for graduate students, particularly in polymer chemistry, materials science, bioconjugate chemistry, bioengineering, and biomaterials. Additionally, with the growing interest in the fabrication of functional soft materials, this book provides essential fundamental information for researchers not only in academia but also in industry.

About the authors

Mizuo Maeda

Mizuo Maeda received his Ph.D. from the University of Tokyo (1983). He was a full professor of materials physics and chemistry at Kyushu University before moving to RIKEN Institute as a chief scientist and a director of Bioengineering Laboratory. His research interests center on polymer chemistry, analytical chemistry, and biomaterials science.

 

Atsushi Takahara

Atsushi Takahara earned his D.Eng. (1983) in the field of polymer science. Since 1999, he is a full professor of Kyushu University. His research interests are focused on advanced soft materials such as polymer ultrathin films, polymer nanocomposites, and novel tough polymers.  

 

Hiromi Kitano

Hiromi Kitano is a director of the Institute for Polymer-Water Interfaces (Toyama, Japan). He earned his Dr. Eng. in Kyoto University (1980). He was a full professor of University of Toyama from 1992 to 2016. His research interests are focused on the structure analyses of water in the vicinity of polymer materials, development and application of biocompatible polymers, and analyses of molecular recognition processes at the interfaces of water-polymer materials.   

Tetsuji YAMAOKA

Tetsuji YAMAOKA is a director of Department of Biomedical Engineering of National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center Research Institute (Osaka Japan).   He earned his Dr. Eng. in Kyoto University (1993). He is a Fellow of Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE) and Japanese Delegate of the International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering. His research interests are cardiovascular artificial organs, regenerative medicines, and molecular imaging.

 

Yoshiko Miura

Yoshiko Miura is a Professor at Kyusyu University. She received her B. Eng. Degree in 1995, M. Eng. Degree in 1997, and Dr. Eng. Degree in 2000 from the Kyoto University. She was appointed Assistant Professor at Nagoya University in 2001, Associate Professor at JAIST in 2005, and Professor at Kyushu University in 2010. Her research interests are biomaterial fabrication with glycopolymers and glyco-nanoparticles.
