Analysis on Carbon Nanomaterials

Research and Markets has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new report "Carbon Nanomaterials" to their offering.

These ten volumes provide an excellent, in-depth overview of all nanomaterial types and their uses in the life sciences. Each volume is dedicated to a specific material class and covers fundamentals, synthesis strategies, structure-property relationships, material behaviour finetuning, biological effects and applications in the life sciences. All important material classes are covered: metallic, metal oxide, magnetic, carbon, polymeric, composite and semiconducting nanomaterials as well as nanostructured surfaces and films. It serves as a major reference work in the field that brings together pertinent knowledge formerly widely spread out over many different sources.

Key Topics Covered:

Part One Overview of Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications in Biomedicine.

  1. Carbon Nanomaterials: Synthetic Approaches (Jean-Philippe Tessonnier).

  2. Nanocarbons: Characterization Tools (Dang Sheng Su).

  3. Synthesis, Characterization, and Biomedical Applications of Graphene (Albert Dato, Velimir Radmilovic and Michael Frenklach).

  4. Carbon Nanohorns and Their Biomedical Applications (Shuyun Zhu and Guobao Xu).

  5. Bio-Inspired Magnetic Carbon Materials (Elby Titus, Jos Gracio, Duncan P. Fagg, Manjo K. Singh and Antonio C. M. Sousa).

  6. Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes for Drug Delivery (Nicole Levi-Polyachenko).

  7. Carbon Nanotube-Based Three-Dimensional Matrices for Tissue Engineering (Izabela Firkowska and Michael Giersig).

  8. Electrochemical Biosensors Based on Carbon Nanotubes (Jonathan C. Claussen, Jin Shi, Alfred R. Diggs, D. Marshall Porterfi eld and Timothy S. Fisher).

  9. Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Biosensors (Jeong-O Lee and Hye-Mi So).

  10. Environmental Impact of Fullerenes (Naohide Shinohara).

  11. Computational Tools for the Biomedical Application of Carbon Nanomaterials (Leela Rakesh).

  2. Cancer Treatment with Carbon Nanotubes, Using Thermal Ablation or Association with Anticancer Agents (Roger G. Harrison, Lus F. F. Neves, Whitney M. Prickett and David Luu).

  3. Carbon Nanotubes for Targeted Cancer Therapy (Reema Zeineldin).

  4. Application of Carbon Nanotubes to Brain Tumor Therapy (Dongchang Zhao and Behnam Badie).

  5. Carbon Nanotubes in Cancer Therapy, including Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) (Amartya Chakrabarti, Hiren Patel, John Price, John A. Maguire and Narayan S. Hosmane).

  6. Fullerenes in Photodynamic Therapy (Sulbha K. Sharma, Ying-Ying Huang, Pawel Mroz, Tim Wharton, Long Y. Chiang and Michael R. Hamblin).
