Den bisherigen Veröffentlichungen und Buchreihen auf dem Markt fehlt es an Informationen über die Anwendung materialspezifischer Nanosubstanzen in der Biowissenschaft. Gerade für Materialwissenschaftler, die sich einen schnellen Überblick über die spezifischen Anwendungsbereiche von Nanosubstanzen in der Biowissenschaft verschaffen wollen, und für Mitarbeiter in der Biowissenschaft, die den spezifischen Nutzen bestimmter Materialien kennen müssen, ist diese Buchreihe ein absolutes Muss.
