Book Description

Surface Analytical Techniques for Probing Biomaterial Processes describes four surface analytical techniques for probing dynamic, in situ processes at the biomaterial interface. The book presents the theoretical basis and biomaterial applications of:

  • Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Spectroscopy (TIRFS)
  • Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR)
  • Ellipsometry
  • Dynamic Contact Angle (DCA) analysis
    This book is not a review, but a practical description of the techniques to enable the biomaterialist to assess and intelligently use any one of the methods described. It deliberately avoids addressing expensive or non-dynamic tests, and concentrates instead on the growing field of biomaterials. Theory is presented in a simple and readable manner, experimental procedures are described, and the type of information obtained is discussed. It is written not just for the avid or interested reader but also, and perhaps more important, for the end user.
