Special Issue: Biodegradable Metals

Published 18 August, 2017

As a sponsor of the 9th Biometal Symposium on Biodegradable Metals for Biomedical Applications, a special issue of Bioactive Materials will be published on “Biodegradable Materials”. Regular papers, reviews and short communications will be published (after regular submission to the journal and full peer-review).

The main topics of consideration for this special issue will include:

  • Materials development, design, processes, surfaces and interfaces;
  • Corrosion, processes, degradation, assessment, standardization procedures;
  • In vitro works, including the assessment of the performances by in vitro processes;
  • In vivo results, prediction of the preclinical and clinical performances, methods for assessing the in vivo results, including imaging, non-destructive testing, and others;
  • Any other pertinent research devoted to biodegradable metals

Paper submission due:
