New review article published! IF: 15.621
Recently, Advanced Functional Materials (IF: 15.621), the top journal of materials science, published the latest scientific research achievement "Piezoelectric Nanobiomaterials for Biomedicine and Tissue Regeneration" of the Associate Professor Zhou Miao team of the Affiliated Stomatological Hospital (Article link: https://doi.org/10.1002/ adfm.201909045).
Dr. Kausik Kapat of the Affiliated Stomatological Hospital is the first author of this article, and Associate Professor Zhou Miao and Professor Sander Leeuwenburgh of the Medical Center of Nijmegen University in the Netherlands are co-corresponding authors.
This article discusses in detail the main categories of piezoelectric biomaterials, describes how biopiezoelectricity is generated in different tissues and macromolecules; discusses the related properties and post-processing methods of nanostructured materials that maximize the piezoelectric effect, and the latest research progress of nano piezoelectric ceramics and piezoelectric polymers in nano drugs and tissue regeneration is summarized.
