Preface

Niklaus Baltzer and Thierry Copponnex

This book provides an insight into state of the art biological applications of precious metals. Such applications are not new, demonstrated, for example, by the ancient Egyptians’ use of gold for dental applications. Today dental restorations made of precious metals are the benchmark of this technology. The use of precious metals for biological applications opens up promising possibilities across a range of fields, with potential applications including precious metals in mouth, implants (e.g. stents), electronic devices (e.g. heart pacemakers), nanomedical applications, surgical instruments and use of the antibacterial effect of silver, along with many other versatile applications.
