Advanced Functional Materials

Advanced Functional Materials is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal, established in February 2001, is published by Wiley-VCH. However, it has been published under other titles since 1985. Coverage of this journal encompasses all topics pertaining to materials science. Topical coverage includes photovoltaics, organic electronics, carbon materials, nanotechnology, liquid crystals, magnetic materials, surfaces and interfaces, and biomaterials. Topics in physics and chemistry. Publishing formats include original research papers, feature articles and highlights. It was established in 2001 by Peter Gregory, the Editor of Advanced Materials, when the Wiley journal Advanced Materials for Optics and Electronics was discontinued. Advanced Functional Materials is the sister journal to Advanced Materials and publishes full papers and feature articles on the development and applications of functional materials, including topics in chemistry, physics, nanotechnology, ceramics, metallurgy, and biomaterials. Frequent topics covered by the journal also include liquid crystals, semiconductors, superconductors, optics, lasers, sensors, porous materials, light-emitting materials, magnetic

A 'sugar' coating for bone implants

Osteoporosis is a leading global health challenge. Besides its own adverse effects, it also impairs the function of bone implants—normally made of a metal called titanium (Ti). Because there is less bone than normal at ...

Coating implants with 'artificial bone' to prevent inflammation

Bone disease is becoming increasingly prevalent due to population aging, among other factors, and the use of dental and orthopedic implants to treat bone disease has been on the rise. The history of implants can be traced ...

New 3-D-printed artery can monitor blockages from the inside

When surgeons replace part of a blood vessel—something they do in 450,000 patients per year in the United States to treat blood clots, coronary disease, stroke damage and more—the grafted vessel is monitored by CT scans, ...
