Polymer Nanocomposites for Biomedical and Biotechnology Applications

Abstract

Polymer-based nanocomposites have emerged as a new class of hybrid materials which find many promising bioapplications, ranging from tissue engineering, drug delivery, to various biotechnological applications. The fundamental understanding of structure, properties, polymer–matrix interaction and further modifications based on fundamental requirements are essential for their designing and development. Additionally, the control over physical and chemical properties along with assessment of biological interactions is instrumental for their potential applications. This chapter discusses emerging biomedical and biotechnological applications of polymer-based nanocomposites.
