15.3 Biocompatibility of Nanomedical Materials

A great deal is already known about the biocompatibility of various materials that are likely to find extensive use in medical nanorobots. Chapter 15.3 includes a review of the experimentally-determined overall biocompatibility of diamond (Section 15.3.1), carbon fullerenes (Section 15.3.2), nondiamondoid carbon (Section 15.3.3), Teflon (Section 15.3.4), sapphire and alumina (Section 15.3.5), and other possible nanomedical materials including DNA and dendrimers (Section 15.3.6) and effluents (Section 15.3.7), and concluding with a discussion of nanorobotic thermocompatibility (Section 15.3.8).
