    Surface engineering provides one of the most important means of engineering product differentiation in terms of quality, performance, and lifecycle cost. It is essential to achieve predetermined functional properties of materials such as mechanical strength, biocompatibility, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and heat and oxidation resistance. Surface Engineering of Biomaterials addresses this topic across a diverse range of process technologies and healthcare applications.

    • Introduces biomaterial surface science and surface engineering and includes criteria for biomaterial surface selection
    • Focuses on a broad array of materials including metals, ceramics, polymers, alloys, and composites
    • Discusses corrosion, degradation, and material release issues in implant materials
    • Covers various processing routes to develop biomaterial surfaces, including for smart and energy applications
    • Details techniques for post-modification of biomaterial surfaces

    This reference work helps researchers working at the intersection of materials science and biotechnology to engineer functional biomaterials for a variety of applications.
