Nanostructured materials development has high impact on biological, biomedical and clinical applications. The nanostructural materials applied for biological system can be an interface with high biodegradability and minimum toxicity. That concern must to be resolve with design and synthesis of nanoscale structures. This chapter describes more on biomedical application and their design techniques.
