In recent years, frontiers of research in engineering, science and technology have been driven by developments in nanomaterials, encompassing a diverse range of disciplines such as materials science, biomedical engineering, nanomedicine and biology, manufacturing technology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and nanoelectronics. IJNBM provides an interdisciplinary vehicle covering these fields. Advanced materials inspired by biological systems and processes are likely to influence the development of novel technologies for a wide variety of applications from vaccines to artificial tissues and organs to quantum computers.
Topics covered include
- Nanostructured materials/surfaces/interfaces
- Synthesis of nanostructures
- Biological/biomedical materials
- Artificial organs/tissues
- Tissue engineering
- Bioengineering materials
- Medical devices
- Functional/structural nanomaterials
- Carbon-based materials
- Nanomaterials characterisation
- Novel applications of nanomaterials
- Modelling of behaviour of nanomaterials
- Nanomaterials for biomedical applications
- Biological response to nanomaterials
IJNBM aims at promoting and coordinating developments in the field of nano and biomaterials. The international dimension is emphasised in order to meet the latest needs of accelerating theoretical knowledge and practical verification of new technologies and products.
IJNBM is intended to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of materials science and technology and materials testing, physical modelling or simulation of various processes in nano and biomaterials, engineering education, and to disseminate information related to nano and biomaterials.
IJNBM publishes original high quality papers, rapid communications, timely review papers, technical reports, and case studies. Special issues devoted to developments in important topics in biological and nanostructured materials will be published periodically.

Tissue engineering with natural hybrids
11 October, 2018
Chitosan is a natural substance extracted from the chitin shells of crustacean. It is a linear polysaccharide comprising randomly distributed deacetylated glucosamine units and acetylated units. It has been the focus of much research in materials science for medical device applications for many years because of its biocompatibility and the potential for it to be bio-absorbed by the body given sufficient time. Similarly, collagen is another natural material, a connective tissue protein found in animals' bodies. It too has been the target of much research given its strength and structural properties. However, collagen shows rapid biodegradation [...]More details...
