Topics from this paper

Pharmaceutical design and development of perfluorocarbon nanocolloids for oxygen delivery in regenerative medicine.
New ways of designing and developing PFC-based artificial oxygen carriers by implementing modern pharmaceutical quality by design and scale up manufacturing methodologies are discussed. Expand
Mimicking oxygen delivery and waste removal functions of blood☆
Advances in blood mimicking systems in the field of biomedical engineering in terms of oxygen delivery and metabolic waste removal are examined. Expand
Impacts of Conformational Geometries in Fluorinated Alkanes
It is observed that conformational geometries mainly influence the chemical and electronic interactions in the presented liquid materials, leading to a direct association of conformations to the dissolving capacity of the presented perfluorocarbons with other solvents like water and possibly gases like oxygen. Expand
Targeted Delivery of Gaseous Ligands (CO and NO) for the Treatment of Ischemia Reperfusion Injury
The aim of this book is to contribute towards the humanizing of science through the exploration of human interaction with nature. Expand
