Published Book Dental Gold Alloys And Gold Nanoparticles For Biomedical Applications

Published book: Dental Gold Alloys and Gold Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications

The published book, authored by our development team, focuses on recent advances in dental gold alloys and gold nanoparticles for biomedical applications. Dental gold alloys combine several highly desirable mechanical properties, such as high strength, ductility, and elasticity, with an extremely robust chemical stability in the mouth. Moreover, astonishing progress has been made in the use of gold nanoparticles as novel gold biomaterials that provide a multifunctional platform for cellular imaging, biosensing, and targeted drug delivery in tumour immunotherapy and photothermal therapy. Different techniques of gold nanoparticles synthesis are adressed for specifically tailoring the size, shape, and stability of thes particles in biological media. In addition to these factors, it addresses how their exposure route, surface chemistry, as well as how the steric effects of their coating impact biodistribution and determine the level of their toxicity in the human body. Featuring topical literature reviews alongside up-to-date published experimental results, this book offers an attractive resource for practicing scientists and engineers working in the field of gold-based biomaterials.
