Natural-Based Polymers for Biomedical Applications
Shared By Guest
Natural origin biopolymers are attractive for use in biomedical applications, partly due to their biocompatibility and degradation characteristics. The Author of this Book is Alex, Helena S. Azevedo, Joao F. Mano, Manuela E. Gomes, N.M. Neves, R.L. Reis, Ra P. Marques This book comprehensively reviews this important subject in six in-depth sections. Array ISBN . Part 1 discusses the sources, properties, modification and processing of natural-based polymers, whilst in the second section surface aspects are reviewed. Natural-Based Polymers for Biomedical Applications available in English. Parts 3 and 4 cover natural-origin materials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, discussing scaffolds, hydrogels and injectable systems. The sustained release of molecules is reviewed in the fifth part of the book, followed by the biocompatibility of natural-based polymers in the final book section.
