Polymer Basics for Biopolymers

Abstract

Biopolymers are materials that either occur naturally (i.e. proteins, sugars) or are synthesized from naturally occurring biological materials like sugars, fats, oil, and starch. In order to be classified as a biomaterial, the material must be bioreasorbable or biodegradable. These polymers are used in different medical device applications such as surgical sutures, wound care products, and devices for controlled drug release.
