Design of Nanostructures for Antimicrobial, Antioxidant and Nutraceutical Applications focuses on antimicrobial, antioxidant and nutraceutical applications of nanostructured materials. Many books discuss these subjects, but not from a pharmaceutical point-of-view. This book covers novel approaches related to the modulation of microbial biofilms, antimicrobial therapy and encapsulate polyphenols as antioxidants. Written by an internationally diverse group of academics, this book is an important reference resource for researchers, both in biomaterials science and the pharmaceutical industry.
• Assesses the most recently developed nanostructures that have potential antimicrobial properties, explaining their novel mechanical aspects
• Shows how nanoantibiotics can be used to more effectively treat disease
• Provides a cogent summary of recent developments in nanoantimicrobial discovery, allowing readers to quickly familiarize themselves with the topic
