Item description for Handbook of Biodegradable Polymers (Medical Reference and Soci and Delivery) by Abraham J. Domb...
The Handbook of Biodegradable Polymers provides a source manual for the synthetic procedures, properties, and applications of bioerodible polymers. Descriptions of widely available materials such as polylactides, collagen, and gelatin are included, as well as polymers of emerging importance such as the genetically engineered and elastin based polymers which are as yet either proprietary and/or in early stages of development. Divided into three sections, each chapter focuses on one type of polymer, providing a concise and comprehensive review on the synthetic methods, properties, biodegradation, biocompatibility and applications. Many chapters are written by experts from the industry, providing a practical viewpoint compared to many existing books in the field. The first section deals with synthetic absorbable polymers, section two addresses natural, semi-synthetic and biosynthetic polymers, with the final section covering the surface characterization of degradable polymers, modelling of biode
