Hydrogels are an rising niche in drugs in addition to pharmaceutics, and their physico-chemical characterization is prime to their useful purposes. in comparison with man made polymers, polysaccharides which are broadly found in residing organisms and are available from renewable resources are tremendous useful for hydrogel formation. moreover, polysaccharides are typically non-toxic and biocompatible and exhibit a few abnormal physico-chemical homes that lead them to appropriate for a large choice of biomedical purposes. This ebook bridges the space among the instruction of hydrogels and their characterization concepts. It goals to supply a sound help which may aid the readers locate acceptable keys to open the doorways to the complicated global of polysaccharide hydrogels.
