Silver Nanoparticle Applications: In the Fabrication and Design of Medical and Biosensing Devices.pdf


Exploring the synthesis, characterization, surface manipulation, electron transfer, and biological activity of silver nanoparticles, this book examines the fundamentals of the properties and synthesis of these particles. With a renewed interest in silver nanoparticles, this book addresses the need to understand their potential in industrial, medical, and other applications. It is divided into six chapters, each written by an expert and providing a comprehensive review of the topic while detailing recent advances made in each specific area. These topics include surface plasmon band, synthesis and characterization, Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and plasmon resonance mediated processes, photocatalysis, biomedical applications and biological activity. It also presents the current state of the art, challenges, and future trends of catalysis, sensing, and biomedical applications. 'Silver Nanoparticle Applications' provides an invaluable reference work and introduction for chemists, biologists, physicists, and biomedical researchers who are interested in exploring the uses and applications of silver nanoparticles. It is also intended for students, researchers and professionals interested in nanotechnology.

Dr. Emilio Isaac Alarcon received his PhD in Chemistry in 2009 (Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Santiago, Chile) with a dissertation on new protein based carriers for photodynamic therapy drugs, and since 2011 he is a research assistant and lecturer at University of Ottawa, Canada. Dr. Alarcon's research is mainly focused, but not limited, on the development and characterization of new hybrid-nanomaterials for tissue regeneration. He has published over 30 articles in top-peer review in different areas like nanomaterials, free radical chemistry, photodynamic therapy, and photochemistry. Dr. May Griffith is Professor of Regenerative Medicine and Scientific Director of the Integrative Regenerative Medicine (IGEN) Centre at Linkoping University (LiU), and Adjunct Professor, University of Ottawa, Canada. MG's research is in translational regenerative medicine, with special interests in biomaterials enhanced cell-based regeneration. She has successfully led the first-in-human translation into clinic of biosynthetic corneal implants that stimulated regeneration in an organ that normally does not regenerate, in a clinical trial of 10 patients. MG's biosynthetic materials have also been successfully tested in collaboration with other researchers for use in cardiovascular, skin and cartilage regeneration in animal models to date, in preparation for clinical translation. She has worked extensively with industry and her work has been published in top peer-reviewed journals, as well as profiled by the media, and has earned her a number of awards. Dr. Klas Udekwu is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience at the 'Karolinska Institutet' (KI) in Sweden and external associate of the Vanderbilt Institute for Integrative Biosystems Research & Education (VIIBRE) in Nashville, USA. KU's research interests are multidisciplinary in nature, spanning molecular microbiology, microbe-dependent neurodevelopment and stress, the population biology of antibiotic therapy, and polymicrobial biofilms. He was trained in molecular biology and microbiology in Uppsala University, Sweden and later population biology in Emory University, USA, both under renowned researchers. He is currently building up his own experimental group in Stockholm, Sweden.
