Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Polymers (Ulla Pharmacy)

cover-biomedical-and-pharmaceutical-polymers-ulla-pharmacyBook Reviews: Why a textbook on biomedical and pharmaceutical polymers? A considerable number of books have already been published on polymers. Despite this, my experience as a teacher is that no simple textbook is available for introducing polymers to graduate and postgraduate students who use them in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields. The subject of polymers is taught to students in materials science who are supposed to conceive new polymers and processes, or to be involved in the production, transformation and design of polymer-based items. An introduction to polymers is not frequently given to students in the domain of health, but polymers are increasingly present in this multidisciplinary domain.

Such users of polymers are confronted with an overwhelming number of specialized books in which they just cannot find the information that they need in their specialized domain. The aim of this book is to provide these students with an introduction to the general concepts of polymer science and some insights into specialty polymers used and developed for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. The book is the result of the experience of the authors especially after courses given both at ULLA Doctoral Summer Schools and at the Faculty of Pharmacy of Chatenay-Malabry, University of Paris South-XI. The book was designed in such a way that the user can find useful general information at the beginning, followed by a specialized part dedicated to synthesis, and finally some examples of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.
