Inorganic materials have been used for biomedical applications since many decades. They have been utilized successfully because of easy and economic methods for bulk preparation and industrial manufacturing.
Surface modifications significantly improve the success of these materials and enable us to exploit their application in many innovative fields such as tissue engineering, dentistry, nanocarriers for drugs, medical diagnosis and antifouling technologies. This e-book provides comprehensive information on technologies for development and characterization of successful functionalized materials for biomedical applications relevant to surface modification. It is a suitable reference for advanced students and researchers interested in biomaterials science and medical applications of inorganic substances.

This chapter describes some of the most important spectroscopic methods to
study the materials surface. Special IR and Raman configurations providing information
from the surface will be reviewed highlighting the main advantages and/or drawbacks
for their applications in the study of biomaterials. Additionally, some examples are
presented to demonstrate their usefulness for the surface characterization of materials
for biomedical applications as well as to understand the complexity of the chemical
interactions between biomaterial surface and biological molecules.
Infrared spectroscopy, raman spectroscopy, organic-inorganic
interaction, calcium phosphates, surface characterization.
