Biomaterials & Nanotechnology
Bionanomaterials are molecular materials composed partially or completely of biological molecules (such as antibodies, proteins/enzymes, DNA, RNA, lipids, oligosaccharides, viruses, and cells for example) and resulting in molecular structures having a nanoscale-dimension(s). The resulting bionanomaterials may have potential applications as novel fibers, sensors, adhesives, energy generating and/or harnessing materials, to mention just a few aspects. These types of systems can allow for fabrication of complex devices by self-assembly under mild experimental conditions and in an eco-friendly manner such as at room temperature and in aqueous conditions. Nano biomaterials are used for cancer treatment, regeneration, and polymeric ones act as gene delivery systems. Nanofiber scaffolds are those fibres which are having diameters less than 100 nm. Nano scaffolding is a process to regrow tissue and bone, also used in stem cell expansion.
