Despite progress in surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy, an effective treatment of gliomas does not yet exist. This new monograph in the ASME-Momentum Press series on Biomedical & Nanomedical Technologies book shows how nanotechnology could be used both to improve the treatment efficacy and to reduce the adverse side effects. It will explain how nanotechnology-based approaches to targeted delivery of drugs across the brain-blood barrier may potentially be engineered to carry out specific functions as needed.

All plastics are complex materials made from basic or intermediate polymers, along with various agents and additives to create desired qualities like color, elasticity, durability, thermal resistance, electrical and optical properties, and so on. Thus, it is imperative that these ingredients be carefully monitored for consistent properties and quality.

This book focuses on the latest techniques available for such testing, including chemical, physical, electrical and mechanical analytical methods. Readers will find:
