Like most of the materials used by humans, polymeric materials are proposed in the literature and occasionally exploited clinically, as such, as devices or as part of devices, by surgeons, dentists, and pharmacists to treat traumata and diseases. Applications have in common the fact that polymers function in contact with animal and human cells, tissues, and/or organs. More recently, people have realized that polymers that are used as plastics in packaging, as colloidal suspension in paints, and… 
Selecting and Designing Polymers Suitable for Nanoparticle Manufacturing
Man has always tried to use the materials around him to construct more and more complex objects for its everyday use, with a particular attention to materials which can be used to treat diseases
Sustainable Removal of Contaminants by Biopolymers: A Novel Approach for Wastewater Treatment. Current State and Future Perspectives
Naturally occurring substances or polymeric biomolecules synthesized by living organisms during their entire life cycle are commonly defined as biopolymers. Different classifications of biopolymers
A detailed discussion of the most important biomass-originated ‘natural’ and biomass-derived or biomass-inspired ‘synthetic’ polymers with respect to their use in pharmaceutical and selected medicinal applications is presented.
Biodegradable polyesters: from monomer to application
This review aims to offer the reader a broad understanding in the synthesis, biodegradation and application of various biodegradable polyesters.
Carbohydrates Used in Polymeric Systems for Drug Delivery: From Structures to Applications
This review focuses on the fundamental understanding of carbohydrate-based drug delivery systems, strategies for application, and the evaluation of biological activity in polymeric carbohydrates.
Recent concepts in biodegradable polymers for tissue engineering paradigms: a critical review
Recently developed biodegradable materials for tissue regeneration of some targeted organs e.g., skin, nerves, blood vessels, heart, cornea, trachea, dental/oral structure and bones are critique.
Environmental performance of bio-based and biodegradable plastics: the road ahead.
There is a need to assess the performance of polymer innovations in terms of their biodegradability especially under realistic waste management and environmental conditions, to avoid the unwanted release of plastic degradation products in receiving environments.
Polylactides—an overview
Aliphatic polyesters derived from lactides of various configurations (LL, DD, and DL) are promising as materials not only for packaging and for production of many other commonly used polymer products
