Polymers for Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Applications: Fundamentals, Selection, and Preparation supports the successful selection, design, and development of polymers with the required properties and performance for a range of advanced pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. The book begins by introducing polymers for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications, examining classification, basic properties, structures, and grades. This is followed by in-depth chapters on synthesis and modification, characterization techniques, and dissolution and solubility of polymers for pharmaceutical applications. Key applications are highlighted, with chapters explaining the preparation of polymers for conventional dosage, modified drug delivery, conjugates, advanced drug and gene delivery, medical devices, pharmaceutical packaging, and more. Throughout the book, the aim is to provide accessible, step-by-step coverage supported by diagrams and case studies. This is a valuable resource for all those who are newly approaching the field of polymers and product development for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. This includes researchers and advanced students across polymer science, pharmaceutical science, biomaterials, biomedicine, healthcare, and chemistry, and scientists and R&D professionals in an industrial setting.
