This quantity comprises thirteen contributions from well known specialists from the correct examine fields which are similar biodegradable and biobased polymers and their environmental and biomedical applications. 


Specifically, the publication highlights:

  •  Developments in polyhydroxyalkanoates purposes in agriculture, biodegradable packaging fabric and biomedical box like drug supply platforms, implants, tissue engineering and scaffolds
  • The synthesis and elaboration of cellulose microfibrils from sisal fibres for prime functionality engineering purposes in quite a few sectors reminiscent of the car and aerospace industries, or for construction and construction
  • The various sessions and chemical variations of tannins
  • Electro-activity and functions of Jatropha latex and seed
  • The synthesis, homes and functions of poly(lactic acid)
  • The synthesis, processing and houses of poly(butylene succinate), its copolymers, composites and nanocomposites
  • The diverse routes for education polymers from vegetable oil and the results of reinforcement and nano-reinforcement at the actual homes of such biobased polymers
  • The varieties of converted drug supply platforms including the idea that of the drug supply matrix for managed liberate of gear and for antitumor drugs
  • The use of nanocellulose as sustainable adsorbents for the elimination of water pollution quite often heavy steel ions, natural molecules, dyes, oil and CO2
  • The major extraction concepts, constitution, homes and various chemical changes of lignins
  • Proteins and nucleic acids dependent biopolymers 
  • The position of tamarind seed polysaccharide-based multiple-unit platforms in sustained drug release

For both, intramuscular or subcutaneous implants, the inflammatory reaction was tested by acute and chronic inflammation tests. The results showed a slightly inflammatory response for short period of time, but a complete integration of the samples into the host tissue after long periods of time (8–12 weeks), with no signals of inflammatory process [91]. The example of the starch-based tubes for salivary surgery, already described in this text, also represents an important advance in in vivo tests of starch-based biocompatible and biosorbable material [70].
