The main sections/chapters of the book focus on the composition of nine types of bioceramics (Al O2/O O3-based, ZrO O2-based, other simple oxides, hydroxyapatite, other calcium salts, silicate ceramics, silicate glasses, glass ceramics, ceramic- matrix composites) and the medical applications of these materials in orthopaedics, dentistry and the treatment of cancerous tumors. Bioceramics will appeal to ceramic and mechanical engineers, medical and dental professionals, and students of advanced-level courses in related fields.
