Please accept this invitation to submit a manuscript for the Special Issue in the journal Materials entitled "Titanium Materials for Biomedical Application 2013". This Special Issue focuses on the recent developments in the design, synthesis and characterization of novel b-phase type Ti-based alloys, Ti-based metallic glasses and nanocomposites, as well as porous Ti-based alloys. Papers dealing with the mechanical behavior of these materials (in static and dynamic regimes), their electrochemical corrosion properties, cytotoxicity aspects and in-vitro and in-vivo biocompatibility tests are welcome. Novel synthetic approaches and advanced surface treatments to enhance biofunctionality and bioactivity of these materials fall also within the scope of this Issue. The Special Issue will be a unique opportunity to show the latest results in fundamental and applied research in the field of Ti-based materials and their biomedical applications. It also aims to promote exchange of ideas and enhance knowledge between different scientific communities, including Physicists, Chemists, Biologists and Materials Science Engineers.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
