Traditional drug encapsulation has been done using lactic acid polymers. The book is application-oriented and describes different types of polymer nanocomposites, such as elastomeric composites, thermoplastic composites, or conductive polymer composites. Inflammation-responsive polymers 9. Once bound, a chemical reaction takes place that triggers a reaction from the hydrogel. Applications[ edit ] Smart polymers appear in highly specialised applications and everyday products alike.
The trigger can be oxygen, sensed using oxidoreductase enzymes, or a pH-sensing response. Above their transition temperature, these polymers become insoluble in water. However, these weak responses, compounded hundreds or thousands of times, create a considerable force for driving biological processes. A graft-and-block approach might be useful for solving problems encountered by the use of a common bioadhesive polymer, polyacrylic acid PAAc.
Some polymers are reversibly cross-linked by noncovalent bonds that can break and reform depending Smart polymers book external conditions. The product exhibits properties of both individual components which adds a new dimension to a smart polymer structure, and may be useful for certain applications. Chapters in part one focus on types of polymers, including temperature- pH- photo- and enzyme-responsive polymers. It provides solid, quantitative descriptions and reliable guidelines, reflecting the maturation of the field and the demand for the development of new smart polymer systems. More recent developments have seen the formation of lattice-like matrices that hold the drug of interest integrated or entrapped between the polymer strands. A combination of PAAc with another polymer that is less sensitive to changes at neutral pH might increase the residence time and slow the release of the drug, thus improving bioavailability and effectiveness.

The extensive research and novel qualities of these polymers has shown significant growth in the market, and is expected to provide lucrative opportunity in the near future.
More recent developments have seen the formation of lattice-like matrices that hold the drug of interest integrated or entrapped between the polymer strands.
Smart phosphorus polymers[ edit ] There exist a sizable number of phosphorus polymers with backbones ranging from primarily phosphorus to primarily organic with phosphorus subunits.
Hydrogels are polymer networks that do not dissolve in water but swell or collapse in changing aqueous environments. She is co-author of more than 50 peer-reviewed papers and 13 book chapters, and editor of the book 'Smart Smart polymers book and their Smart polymers book. This book will be of interest to those working on techniques of bioseparation and bioprocessing, polymer chemists developing new smart polymers, as well as graduates in biotechnology.
Introduction to smart polymers and their applications 2. Stimuli-responsive protein fibres for advanced applications Her research in the field of polymer nanocomposites among other Smart polymers book has been published in international journals and book contributions, and has been awarded at several international conferences with best poster and oral presentation awards.The first part of this book reviews the different types of smart polymer, discussing their properties, structure, design and characterization.
New generation delivery systems involve smart materials such as shape memory and self-folding polymers. Shape memory polymers revert back to their original shape above their glass transition temperatures where this temperature change can be induced conventionally, photolytically, with a lazer or magnetically depending on the composition of the material.
This ability to assume original shape Cited by: 4. The book focuses on the theory describing the behavior of smart polymers in solution, as gels, and when grafted to surfaces.
It provides solid, quantitative descriptions and reliable guidelines, reflecting the maturation of the field and the demand for the development of new smart polymer systems.Smart metalloid and metal containing polymers.
