Abstract


  • Biodegradable polymers have a long history which, however, is difficult to be traced as some of them are natural products. The concept of synthetic biodegradable polymers, the topic of this special issue, was introduced in the 1980s. Since then the field has experienced a steady and stable growth as its outcomes are potentially relevant to the majority of population. This interdisciplinary field encompasses elements of materials science, biology, chemistry, medicine, tissue engineering, and others.
