This book brings together a number of key biopolymer and biodegradable plastics topics in one place for a broad audience of engineers and scientists, especially those designing with biopolymers and biodegradable plastics, or evaluating the options for switching from traditional plastics to biopolymers. In recent years the use of renewable resources as chemical feedstocks for the synthesis of polymeric materials has attracted considerable attention due to the finite nature of traditional petrochemical derived compounds in addition to economic and environmental considerations. A key goal of the coming years will be the development of sustainable raw materials for the chemical industry that /5(2). Handbook of Biodegradable Polymers, the seventh volume in the Drug Delivery and Targeting book series, provides a source manual for synthetic procedures, properties and applications of bioerodible polymers. The authors describe widely available materials such as polyactides, collagen and gelatin, as well as polymers of emerging importance, such as the genetically-engineered and elastin-based /5(2). “In short, the handbook is a very good reference for getting information about different types of biodegradable polymers with important examples, synthetic procedures, and application areas, specifically for medicine and biomedical applications.” (Materials Views, 15 July )Price: $
The Handbook of Biodegradable Polymers: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications, edited by Andreas Lendlein and Adam Sisson, covers different aspects of biodegradable polymers, such as description and properties of technically relevant natural and synthetic polymers, macromolecular architectures, important application areas like drug Author: Advanced Science News.

A comprehensive overview of biodegradable polymers, covering everything from synthesis, characterization, and degradation mechanisms while also introducing useful applications, such as drug delivery systems and biomaterial-based regenerative therapies. An introductory section deals with such fundamentals as basic chemical reactions during degradation, the complexity of biological . Handbook of Biodegradable Polymers, 2nd Edition is a complete guide to the subject of biodegradable polymers and is ideal for those new to the subject or those wanting to supplement their existing knowledge. Get this from a library! Handbook of biodegradable polymers. [Catia Bastioli; Rapra Technology Limited.;] -- This book is a complete guide to polymers, which degrade naturally once they are finished with. This is an especially important topic at the moment as landfill space is getting less and other methods. is a platform for academics to share research papers.
