Ed. by Devine, Declan
Series:De Gruyter STEM
- Explores issues in conventional biodegradable polymer processing such as hydrolysis and plasticizing.
- Describes alternative processing approaches such as rapid prototyping and micro-/nanofabrication.
Aims and Scope
Bioresorbable implants can be processed via conventional polymer processing methods such as extrusion, injection and compressing moulding, solvent spinning or casting. This book addresses issues and highlights recent advances in the use of biodegradable polymers. It is intended for researchers utilizing biodegradable polymers in areas from tissue engineering to controlled release of active pharmaceuticals, as well as industrial processors.
