Tailor-Made Polysaccharides in Biomedical Applications provides extensive details on all the vital precepts, basics, and fundamental aspects of tailored polysaccharides in the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. This information provides readers with the foundation for understanding and developing high-quality products. The utilization of natural polymeric excipients in numerous healthcare applications demands the replacement of the synthetic polymers with natural polymers. Natural polymers are superior in terms of biocompatibility, biodegradability, economic extraction, and ready availability. Natural polymers are especially useful in that they are a renewable source of raw materials, as long as they are grown sustainably. Among these natural polymers, polysaccharides are considered as excellent excipients because they are nontoxic, stable, and biodegradable. Several research innovations have been carried out using polysaccharides in drug delivery applications. This book offers a comprehensive resource to understand the potential of these materials in forming new drug delivery methods. It will be useful to biomedical researchers, chemical engineers, regulatory scientists, and students who are actively involved in developing pharmaceutical products for biomedical applications by using tailor-made polysaccharides. Provides methodology for the design, development, and selection of tailor-made polysaccharides in biomedical applications, including for particular therapeutic applications Includes illustrations demonstrating the mechanism of biological interaction of tailor-made polysaccharides Discusses the regulatory aspects and demonstrates the clinical efficacy of tailor-made polysaccharides

Polysaccharides are the subject of heightened interest today, and this book is a concise and fully up-to-date study of the properties of food polysaccharides, describing their interaction with water, the mass-volume-pressure-relationship, various types of mathematical modeling, and the common phenomenology under different combinations of stimuli. New empirical and theoretical equations, which are not often identified with food technologies, are used to support the findings. Polysaccharide Dispersions: Chemistry and Technology in Food is written in a simple, nontechnical style and should be equally comprehensible to the student, the researcher, the plant manager, and the casual observer with only a modest technical background. Contains fundamental principles, practical applications, and new discoveries regarding polysaccharides Presents material in a simple, easy to understand style Focuses exclusively on the food industry

This book provides an essential overview of the science of polysaccharides. It both approaches polysaccharides as a polymer class and provides detailed descriptions of most major polysaccharides (cellulose, mannan, xylan, chitin-chitosan, cyclodextrines). Owing to the multidisciplinary character of the European Polysaccharide Network of Excellence (EPNOE), the book describes all main aspects of polysaccharide science and technology (biology, enzymology, physics, chemistry, materials science and processing). Notations and concepts follow a uniform format throughout the whole work in order to create a valuable reference book on the field of polysaccharide science. Owing to the major importance of industry in the EPNOE, concrete applications are also described in detail.

Radiation-Processed Polysaccharides: Emerging Roles in Agriculture is the first book to focus exclusively on this emerging and important option for reducing the overuse and negative impact of agrochemicals in agriculture. Among practices being developed for effective and eco-friendly plant growth regulators in crop production, using radiation-processed polysaccharides (RPPs) is a promising technique. Comprised of chapters from diverse areas of plant science, including agriculture, agronomy, biotechnology, nanotechnology, molecular biology, and radiation agriculture, this book provides insights into the practical application of RPPs and inspires further research toward sustainable and efficient agricultural production. Polysaccharides (sodium alginate, carrageenan, chitosan and others) in their depolymerized state are increasingly important to agriculture based on their unique biological properties, biocompatibility, biodegradability and non-toxicity. Understanding the impact of RPPs on the plant phenotype, translocation of nutrients from source to sink, signal processing, and crosstalk helps improve the applicability of RPPs and sustainable agricultural yield. Presents the latest application of RPPs for improved plant production Includes insights for abiotic stress, biotechnology, nanotechnology and molecular application Explores the efficiency of natural polysaccharides as plant growth promoters
