Hydrogels Based on Natural Polymers presents the latest research on natural polymer-based hydrogels, covering fundamentals, preparation methods, synthetic pathways, advanced properties, major application areas, and novel characterization techniques. The advantages and disadvantages of each natural polymer-based hydrogel are also discussed. The book Natural Polymers: Derivatives, Blends and Composites Volume II is an edited volume comprised of fifteen chapters from different experts working in the area of natural polymers. Natural polymers are finding applications in fields of packaging, medicine, pharmaceutics, biomedicine, textiles and many others. natural and synthetic polymers is emphasized. A number of miscellaneous topics have been drawn together in one chapter, which includes sections on conductive polymers, smart materials, protomics, human genome, optical fibers, material selection charts, carbon nanotubes, and liquid crystals. Thus, natural polymers are readily accepted by the body and possess high bioactivity and biocompatibility. Natural polymers can be divided into three major classes according to their chemical structure: (i) polysaccharides, (ii) proteins, and (iii) polyesters.

Natural occurring polymers, or biopolymers, represent a huge part of our planet biomass. They are formed by long chains of monomers of the same type or a combination of different ones. Conducting Polymers. This book explains the following topics: Conductive Polymer-Based Membranes, Conducting Polymers in Sensor Design, Conducting Polymer Aerogels, Coating of Conducting Polymers on Natural Cellulosic Fibers, Electrical Properties of Polymer Light-Emitting Devices, Exfoliated Nanocomposites Based on Polyaniline and Tungsten.

The other natural polymers are polysaccharides or called as sugar polymers and polypeptides such as keratin, silk, and the hair. Natural rubber is also a natural polymer which is made of hydrogen and carbon. Examples of Natural Polymers. There are about many examples of natural polymers which occur in . Natural polymers are a class of biomaterials that are typically isolated from natural sources and are used widely in biomedical applications. Natural polymers have better interactions with cells due to their biological recognition, which is vital for encouraging cellular interaction and .
