Bioceramic coatings for medical implants: Trends and by Robert B. Heimann, Hans D. Lehmann

By Robert B. Heimann, Hans D. Lehmann

Reflecting the development in recent times, this booklet offers in-depth details at the education, chemistry, and engineering of bioceramic coatings for scientific implants. it really is authored through well known specialists with over 30 years of expertise in and academia, who be aware of the potentials and pitfalls of the ideas concerned.

Following an creation to the foundations of biocompatibility, they current the constructions and houses of assorted bioceramics from alumina to zirconia. the most a part of the paintings specializes in coating applied sciences, reminiscent of chemical vapor deposition, sol-gel deposition and thermal spraying. There then follows a dialogue of the key interactions of bioceramics with bone or tissue cells, complemented by means of an summary of the in-vitro trying out tools of the biomineralization homes of bioceramics. The textual content is rounded off by way of chapters at the functionalization of bioceramic coatings and a glance at destiny trends.

As a end result, the authors collect all facets of the newest options for designing, depositing, trying out, and imposing stronger and novel bioceramic coating compositions, supplying an entire but concise review for rookies and pros.
