Biomaterials and Its Characterization

  • Subrata Pal


As of this publication, the development of biomaterials as a science is nearly 50 years old. The study of this subject is known as biomaterials science and involves engineering as well as development of products. It has shown a steady and strong growth over the years, with business groups investing large amounts of money into the development of new products. Biomaterials science is highly interdisciplinary in nature, involving medical sciences, biosciences, chemistry, tissue engineering, and materials science principles (Fig. 4.1).
