This text provides students with a solid understanding of the relationship between the structure, processing, and properties of materials. Authors Askeland and Wright present the fundamental concepts of atomic structure and the behavior of materials and clearly link them to the materials issues that students will have to deal with when they enter the industry or graduate school (e.g. design of structures, selection of materials, or materials failures). Fundamental concepts are linked to practical applications, emphasizing the necessary basics without overwhelming the students with too much of the underlying chemistry or physics.

Diabetes Mellitus, a syndrome of disordered metabolism, characterised by abnormal elevation in blood glucose level, has become a life-threatening condition for many people. Current means of therapy for Diabetes Mellitus do not mimic the normal physiological pattern of insulin release. Oral delivery is the preferred route of administration due to its non-invasive nature. Oral delivery of insulin presents an overview of Diabetes Mellitus, and discusses the strategies and techniques adopted for oral delivery of insulin. This title begins with an introductory chapter on symptoms, complications and therapy for Diabetes Mellitus. Subsequent chapters cover the various routes for administering insulin; the challenges and strategies of oral delivery; experimental techniques in the development of an oral insulin carrier; lipids; inorganic nanoparticles and polymers in oral insulin delivery; and a summary and presentation of future perspectives on oral delivery of insulin. Presents an overview of Diabetes Mellitus Includes a discussion of various strategies and techniques adopted for oral delivery of insulin Presents an update of research in the field
