The new book series Nanomaterials for the Lie Sciences , successor to the highly acclaimed series "Nanotechnology for the Life Sciences", provides an in-depth overview of all nanomaterials types and their uses in the life sciences. Each volume is dedicated to a specific material class and covers fundamentals, synthesis and characterization strategies, structure-property relationships and biomedical applications. The new series brings nanomaterials to the life scientists and life science to the materials scientists so that synergies are seen and developed to the fullest. Written by international experts of the various facets of this exciting field of research, the ten volumes of this single source of information comprehensively cover the complete range of nanomaterials for medical, biological and cybernetic applications. The series is aimed at scientists of the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, materials science, physics, bioengineering, and medicine, together with cell biology, biomedical engineering, pharmaceutical chemistry and toxicology, both in academia and fundamental research as well as in pharmaceutical companies. Volume 4: Magnetic Nanomaterials Volume 4 takes the reader on a tour showing how magnetic nanomaterials are used in the fields of diagnosis and therapy, as well as in tissue engineering and environmental applications.
