The phenomenon of adhesion is of cardinal importance in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and dental fields. A few eclectic examples will suffice to underscore the importance/relevance of adhesion in these three areas. For example, the adhesion between powdered solids is of crucial importance in tablet manufacture. The interaction between biodevices (e.g., stents, bio-implants) and body environment dictates the performance of such devices, and there is burgeoning research activity in modifying the surfaces of such implements to render them compatible with bodily components. In the field of dentistry, the modern trend is to shift from retaining of restorative materials by mechanical interlocking to adhesive bonding.

This unique book addresses all these three areas in an easily accessible single source. The book contains 15 chapters written by leading experts and is divided into four parts: General Topics; Adhesion in Pharmaceutical Field; Adhesion in Biomedical Field; and Adhesion in Dental Field. The topics covered include:

- Theories or mechanisms of adhesion.
- Wettability of powders.
- Role of surface free energy in tablet strength and powder flow behavior.
- Mucoadhesive polymers for drug delivery systems.
- Transdermal patches.
- Skin adhesion in long-wear cosmetics.
- Factors affecting microbial adhesion.
- Biofouling and ways to mitigate it.
- Adhesion of coatings on surgical tools and bio-implants.
- Adhesion in fabrication of microarrays in clinical diagnostics.
- Antibacterial polymers for dental adhesives and composites.
- Evolution of dental adhesives.
- Testing of dental adhesives joints.

Metallurgy and Design of Alloys with Hierarchical Microstructures covers the fundamentals of processing-microstructure-property relationships and how multiple properties are balanced and optimized in materials with hierarchical microstructures widely used in critical applications. The discussion is based principally on metallic materials used in aircraft structures; however, because they have sufficiently diverse microstructures, the underlying principles can easily be extended to other materials systems. With the increasing microstructural complexity of structural materials, it is important for students, academic researchers and practicing engineers to possess the knowledge of how materials are optimized and how they will behave in service.

The book integrates aspects of computational materials science, physical metallurgy, alloy design, process design, and structure-properties relationships, in a manner not done before. It fills a knowledge gap in the interrelationships of multiple microstructural and deformation mechanisms by applying the concepts and tools of designing microstructures for achieving combinations of engineering properties—such as strength, corrosion resistance, durability and damage tolerance in multi-component materials—used for critical structural applications.

Discusses the science behind the properties and performance of advanced metallic materialsProvides for the efficient design of materials and processes to satisfy targeted performance in materials and structuresEnables the selection and development of new alloys for specific applications based upon evaluation of their microstructure as illustrated in this work
