Introduction developments in science and technology, especially over the last two decades, have increased the amount of synthetic polymers produced worldwide each year. Biodegradable polymers - download as pdf file (pdf), text file (txt) or read online. Utilization of polymers as biomaterials has greatly impacted the advancement of modern medicine specifically, polymeric biomaterials that are biodegradable provide the significant advantage of being able to be broken down and removed after they have served their function. Disposing of polymers most polymers, including poly(ethene) and poly(propene), are not biodegradable this means microorganisms cannot break them down, so they may last for many years in rubbish dumps however.
Degradable plastics from fossil fuels these polymers are synthetic biodegradable polymers, that is polymers which are not made by biological processes, but which will still degrade.
