About this book

Chemical Processes for a Sustainable Future summarises the recent achievements in surface-functionalised cells including fabrication, characterisation, applications and nanotoxicity. The chapters cover a range of different systems for altering and enhancing the functionalities of cells using different functional nanomaterials such as polymer nanofilms, nanoparticles, nanocoated cells, and artificial spores. Chemical Processes for a Sustainable Future provides an interdisciplinary approach to the topic with authors from both biological and chemical backgrounds. Chemical Processes for a Sustainable Future is suitable for researchers at postgraduate level and above interested in biomaterials, biochemistry, microbiology and colloid chemistry.
