Advanced Functional Polymers for Medicine – Free Access

Advanced functional polymers for medicine

The complex requirements of modern medicine demand a variety of multifunctional materials. Polymers provide a versatile toolbox for such materials. Hydrolytically degradable polymers show temporal changes of mechanical properties during degradation and controlled drug release capabilities, while stimuli-sensitive polymers enable a non-invasive external stimulus to trigger a change in a material property in vivo. Polymers [...]
