Carbon Nanomaterials for Bioimaging Bioanalysis and Therapy (PDF) [of the series Nanocarbon Chemistry and Interfaces] is a comprehensive reference on bioimaging; bioanalysis; biochemistry; and therapeutic applications of carbon nanomaterials.
Carbon nanomaterials have been widely applied for biomedical applications in the past few decades; because of their unique physical properties; versatile functionalization chemistry; and biological compatibility. This ebook provides background knowledge at the entry level into the biomedical applications of carbon nanomaterials; focusing on three applications: bioimaging; bioanalysis; and therapy.
Carbon Nanomaterials for Bioimaging; Bioanalysis; and Therapy begins with a general introduction to carbon nanomaterials for biomedical applications; including a discussion about the pros and cons of various carbon nanomaterials for the respective therapeutic applications. It then goes on to cover fluorescence imaging; deep tissue imaging; photoacoustic imaging; pre-clinical/clinical bioimaging applications; carbon nanomaterial sensors for cancer and disease diagnosis; targeted cancer therapy; and photothermal/photodynamic therapy. Each chapter briefly introduces the biomedical application and emphasizes the most appropriate carbon nanomaterial(s) for the application.
