2023-2024 Catalog

ES 232 Biomaterials Science

Classes of biomaterials used in medical applications, including ceramics, metals, and polymers (both synthetic and natural), will be discussed in terms of physical, chemical, and mechanical properties. Structure, properties, and processing of biomaterials will be examined to predict biocompatibility and to appropriately select biomaterials for specific applications. Students may not receive credit for both ES 231 and ES 232.
