Application of Nanoparticles of Ceramics, Peptides, Silicon, Carbon, and Diamonds in Tissue Engineering
This review purports to fill the gap in knowledge that exists about the role of nanoparticles in Tissue Engineering. In this review, the use of the term nanoparticles will be exclusively confined to those materials or composites with grain sizes ranging from 100-500 nm. First, a brief description of the field will be provided. Next, research findings on the use of cells on ceramics, peptides, carbon, silicon, and diamond, will be scrutinized. Then, future applications and directions will be outlined. Finally, a succinct account will summarize some of the developments in the field of Tissue Engineering involving nanoparticles.
