Bionanocomposites : integrating biological processes for bioinspired nanotechnologies

Contributor(s): Aime, Carole [ed.] | Coradin, Thibaud [ed.].
Publisher: New Jersey Wiley 2017Description: xvii, 372p.ISBN: 9781118942222.Subject(s): Nanocomposites (Materials) | Nanobiotechnology | Biomimetic materialsDDC classification: 620.5 | B522
Contents:
Beginning with a general overview of nanocomposites, Bionanocomposites: Integrating Biological Processes for Bio–inspired Nanotechnologies details the systems available in nature (nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids) that can be integrated within suitable inorganic matrices for specific applications. Describing the relationship between architecture, hierarchy and function, this book aims at pointing out how bio–systems can be key components of nanocomposites. The text then reviews the design principles, structures, functions and applications of bionanocomposites. It also includes a section presenting related technical methods to help readers identify and understand the most widely used analytical tools such as mass spectrometry, calorimetry, and impedance spectroscopy, among others.
