Biomaterials are natural or synthetic materials that are intended to interact with biological systems to evaluate, treat, augment, or replace any tissue, organ or function of the body. A biomaterial substrate composed of nanometer-scale components is known as nano-biomaterial. Nano-biomaterials have an increased number of atoms at their surface and possess a higher surface area to volume ratio than conventional micro-scale biomaterials. Biomaterials are increasingly being used for medical applications like joint replacements, bone plates, bone cement, artificial ligaments and tendons, dental implants for tooth fixation, heart valves, artificial tissues, bioimaging and biosensing. The volume 11 is intended to serve as a reference book for students, teachers, researchers as well as professionals who are willing to acquire detailed understanding of the otherwise wide area of biomaterials for their potential biomedical applications. To meet the above objectives this volume covers following topics: Introduction of nano-biomaterials. Experimental techniques for synthesis of bio-nanomaterials and their applications in catalysis and sensing. Synthesis of fully interconnected macropore forming calcium phosphate cement (FMF-CPC) for artificial bone substitution. Biomedical applications of C60 buckeyballs, iron oxide nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, gold nanoparticles, nano BaSO4, dendrimers and ceramics. Properties and applications of lipids, proteins and polysaccharides for drug delivery systems. Effect of sport and energy drinks on dental restorative materials. Stimulus-responsive nanomaterials for targeted drug delivery. Host tissue response to implanted biomaterial. Chitosan based nanoparticles - preparation methods and their biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. This volume contains 19 chapters from 63 researchers and/or academicians representing 15 countries, namely Brazil, China, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, India, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, United States and Vietnam presenting an overview of the research being carried out in different parts of the world on biomaterials.
