This book is a text on novel nanocrystalline alloys and magnetic nanomaterials
arising out of presentations given at the fourth Oxford–Kobe
Materials Seminar, held at the Kobe Institute on 11–14 September 2001.
The Kobe Institute is an independent non profit-making organization. It
was established by donations from Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture and more
than 100 companies all over Japan.
This innovative book integrates the disciplines of biomedical science, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, physiological engineering, and hospital management technology. Herein, Biomedical science covers topics on disease pathways, models and treatment mechanisms, and the roles of red palm oil and phytomedicinal plants in reducing HIV and diabetes complications by enhancing antioxidant activity.
Cd1-xMnxS nanoparticles (NPs) with size quantum confinement belong to the diluted
magnetic semiconductor (DMS) quantum dot (QD) class of materials that has been widely
studied in the last few years. The study of quasi-zero-dimensional Diluted Magnetic
Semiconductors (DMS), such as Cd1-xMnxS Quantum Dots (QDs), is strongly motivated due
to the localization of magnetic ions in the same places as the free-like electron and hole
carriers occurring in these nanomaterials [1,2].
