Biopolymers for Medical Applications by Juan M. Ruso,Paula V. Messina

By Juan M. Ruso,Paula V. Messina

This e-book provides an experimental and computational account of the purposes of biopolymers within the box of drugs. Biopolymers are macromolecules produced by way of residing platforms, resembling proteins, polypeptides, nucleic acids, and polysaccharides. Their benefits over polymers produced utilizing artificial chemistry comprise: variety, abundance, rather not pricey, and sustainability. This e-book explains thoughts for the construction of other biodevices, reminiscent of scaffolds, hydrogels, useful nanoparticles, microcapsules, and nanocapsules. in addition, advancements in nanodrug supply, gene treatment, and tissue engineering are described.
