This book exclusively focuses on the science and fundamentals of
polymer gels, as well as the numerous advantages that polymer
gel-based materials offer. It presents a comprehensive collection
of chapters on the recent advances and developments in the core
science and fundamentals of both synthetic and natural
polymer-based gels, and pays particular attention to applications
in the various research fields of biomedicine and engineering. Key
topics addressed include: polysaccharide-based gels and their
fundamentals; stimuli-responsive polymer gels; polymer gels applied
to enzyme and cell immobilization; chitosan-based gels for cancer
therapy; natural polymeric and gelling agents; radiation dosimetry;
polymeric gels as vehicles for enhanced drug delivery across the
skin; transport in and through gel; and polymer gel nanocomposites
and functional gels. The book's extensive and highly topical
coverage will appeal to researchers working in a broad range of
fields in industry and academia alike.
