Biological And Pharmaceutical Nanomaterials
By Challa Kumar
This volume of NLS presents knowledge on important natural biological compounds that form nanomaterials or that may be used to purposefully create them. This unique single source of information brings together the many articles published in specialized journals which often remain unseen by members of the other, related disciplines. Covering amongst others DNA, plant and animal proteins, and lipoplexes, numerous approaches how to assemble or self-assemble them into nanotubes or particles are shown with a focus on materials and technologies needed for the continued growth of medicine, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and human wellness applications.
Chemists, biochemists, cell biologists, materials scientists, biologists, and all those working in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries and related research institutions will find this book of gerat value and importance.
