The synthesis and application of biocompatible and biodegradable polymers have recently emerged as areas of great interest. These materials are rapidly becoming viable alternatives to biologically intractable polymers for industrial uses such as packaging. They are uniquely suited to specialist biomedical applications, such as the encapsulation and controlled release of bioactive molecules and as scaffolds for tissue engineering. 7] Herein, we describe a novel enzymatic method for the low… CONTINUE READING
