About this product
- DescriptionExplores the latest applications arising from the intersection of natechlogy and microfluidics
In the past two decades, microfluidics research has seen phemenal growth, with many new and emerging applications in fields ranging from chemistry, physics, and biology to engineering. With the emergence of natechlogy, microfluidics is currently undergoing dramatic changes, embracing the rising field of nafluidics.
This volume reviews the latest devices and applications stemming from the merging of natechlogy with microfludics in such areas as drug discovery, bio-sensing, catalysis, electrophoresis, enzymatic reactions, and namaterial synthesis. Each of the ten chapters is written by a leading pioneer at the intersection of natechlogy and microfluidics. Readers t only learn about new applications, but also discover which futuristic devices and applications are likely to be developed. Topics explored in this volume include: *
New lab-on-a-chip systems for drug delivery *
Integration of microfluidics with naneuroscience to study the nervous system at the single-cell level *
Recent applications of naparticles within microfluidic channels for electrochemical and optical affinity biosensing *
Novel microfluidic approaches for the synthesis of namaterials *
Next-generation alternative energy portable power devices
References in each chapter guide readers to the primary literature for further investigation of individual topics. Overall, scientists, researchers, engineers, and students will t only gain a new perspective on what has been done, but also the natechlogy tools they need to develop the next generation of microfluidic devices and applications.
Microfluidic Devices for Natechlogy is a two-volume publication, the first ever to explore the synergies between microfluidics and natechlogy. The first volume covers fundamental concepts; this second volume examines applications.
