Natural polymers by Maya J John( )

26 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the search for sustainable materials, natural polymers present an attractive alternative for many applications compared to their synthetic counterparts derived from petrochemicals. The two volume set, Natural Polymers, covers the synthesis, characterisation and applications of key natural polymeric systems including their morphology, structure, dynamics and properties. Volume one focuses on natural polymer composites, including both natural and protein fibres, and volume two on natural polymer nanocomposites. The first volume examines the characterization, life cycle assessment and new sources of natural fibres and their potential as a replacement for synthetic fibres in industrial applications. It then explores the important advancements in the field of wool, silk, spidersilk and mussel byssus fibres. The second volume looks at the properties and characterization of cellulose, chitosan, furanic, starch, wool and silk nanocomposites and the potential industrial applications of natural polymer nanocomposites"--Provided by publisher

Biopolymer nanocomposites : processing, properties, and applications by Alain Dufresne( )

18 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is an attempt to introduce various biopolymers and bionanocomposites to a student of material sciences. Going beyond mere introduction, the book delves deep into the characteristics of various biopolymers and bionanocomposites and discuses, the nuances of their preparation with a view to help researchers to find out newer and novel applications. Chapter 2 of the book, for instance, describes the preparation of Chitin Nanofibers and their Composites and goes even to the basics like isolation of CNFs from different sources. Chapter 3 is on Chemical Modification of Chitosan and its Biomedical Application. While, Biometric lessons for processing chitin based composites are provided in Chapter 4, the next chapter deals with Morphological and Thermal Investigations of Chitin-based Nanocomposites. Mechanical properties of chitin-based nanocomposites are discussed in Chapter 6 and Preparation and Applications of Chitin Nanofibers/Nanowhiskers is the topic of Chapter 7. Thus, Chapters 2 to 7 are allotted to Chitin and related topics"--

Written by renowned scientists from academia and industry, this book covers the recent developments, trends and innovations in the application of nanotechnologies in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. It provides information on methodologies for designing and using biomaterials to regenerate tissue, on novel nano-textured surface features of materials (nano-structured polymers and metals e.g.) as well as on theranostics, immunology and nano-toxicology aspects. In the book also explained are fabrication techniques for production of scaffolds to a series of tissue-specific applications of scaffolds in tissue engineering for specific biomaterials and several types of tissue (such as skin bone, cartilage, vascular, cardiac, bladder and brain tissue). Furthermore, developments in nano drug delivery, gene therapy and cancer nanotechonology are described. The book helps readers to gain a working knowledge about the nanotechnology aspects of tissue engineering and will be of great use to those involved in building specific tissue substitutes in reaching their objective in a more efficient way. It is aimed for R&D and academic scientists, lab engineers, lecturers and PhD students engaged in the fields of tissue engineering or more generally regenerative medicine, nanomedicine, medical devices, nanofabrication, biofabrication, nano- and biomaterials and biomedical engineering
