Nanoscience is a multidisciplinary area of science which enables researchers to create tools that help in understanding the mechanisms related to the interactions between nanomaterials and biomolecules (nanotechnology). Nanomaterials represent nanotechnology products. These products have an enormous impact on technical industries and the quality of human life. Nanomaterials directly or indirectly have to interact with biosystems. It is, therefore, essential to understand the beneficial and harmful interactions of nanomaterials with and within a biosystem, especially with reference to humans.

This book provides primary and advanced information concerning the interactions between nanomaterials and the components of a typical biosystem to readers. Chapters in the book cover, in a topic-based approach, the many facets of nanomolecular interactions with biological molecules and systems that influence their behavior, bioavailability and biocompatibility (including nucleic acids, cell membranes, tissues, enzymes and antibodies). A note on the applications of nanomaterials is also presented in the conclusion of the book to illustrate the usefulness of this class of materials.

The contents of the book will benefit students, researchers, and technicians involved in the fields of biological sciences, such as cell biology, medicine, molecular biology, food technology, cosmetology, pharmacology, biotechnology, and environmental sciences. The book also provides information for the material science personnel, enabling them to understand the basics of target-oriented nanomaterials design for specific objectives.


Review 1

"Nanomaterials and their interactive behavior with biomolecules, cells and tissues, covers what you want to know about nanomaterials, their behavior and their interactions with other macromolecules and cells. It is a great read and a great resource!" - Marion McClary, Jr., Ph.D., Dickinson University, New Jersey, USA

Review 2

"I read the book with great interest. In view of the wide range of applications of nanotechnology in various fields, the presented materials are very important for understanding the interaction of nanomaterials with biosystems, as well as the action of nanoparticles at the cellular and molecular levels. Undoubtedly, the book will be very useful both for research work and for teaching students in this area." - Dr Halyna Antonyak, Professor, Department of Ecology, Ivan Franco National University of Lviv, Lviv, Ukraine

Review 3

"The title is apt and draws the attention of the biologists involved in nanoscience research. The chapter division is good and almost all the biological processes and biomaterials have been dealt in detail. Chapters are aligned in such a way, highlighting the concept of nanoscience to the intricate mechanistic application of nanomaterials. In chapters 1-5 the existing information and application of nanomaterials is explained in a vivid manner. Chapters such as Chapter 7- Genetic material – Nanomaterials, Chapter 8 Enzymes – Nanomaterials, Chapter 9 Nanomaterials - Immunity, are the new horizons and scientific information is embedded in an orderly manner. The scientific information provided in the book is good and it will be of great use for the advanced research in nanoscience, biological Nanomaterial [design] and biological processes." - Dr. N Sreenivas, Associate Professor, Department of Zoology, Senior Member in Zoology - REST Society for Research International board of Council, PR Govt.
