Tissue based research on Biopolymers
The polymers that are used in tissue engineering are generally degradable materials. For this reason, these polymers lack sites for which interaction with cells are less. Therefore, for tissue regeneration, functional synthetic biodegradable polymers have been developed as scaffolding materials.
Polymer properties are broadly divided into several classes based on the scale at which the property is defined as well as upon its physical basis.The most basic property of a polymer is the identity of its constituent monomers. A second set of properties, known as microstructure, essentially describes the arrangement of these monomers within the polymer at the scale of a single chain.
