Ceramic transactions; v.228


The 18 papers in this collection are from the symposia "Next Generation Biomaterials" and "Surface Properties of Biomaterials" at the Materials Science & Technology Conference in Houston during October 2010. They explore biomaterials for tissue engineering, ceramic biomaterials, metallic biomaterials, biomaterial for drug delivery, nano-biomaterials, biocompatible coatings, and surface modifications. Among the specific topics are ultrafine-grained commercially pure titanium and microstructure response to hydroxyapatite coating methods, porous biodegradable scaffolds for hard tissue engineering, apatite nano-rod arrays grown on glass substrates in aqueous systems, hard and wear-resistant surfaces for load bearing metal implants, calcium phosphate ceramics in drug delivery and bone tissue engineering, and thermal sprayed bioceramic coatings for metallic implants. Only the authors are indexed.
