POLY(ORGANOPHOSPHAZENES) DESIGNED FOR BIOMEDICAL USES.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This paper reviews research work done on preparation and testing of polyorganophosphazenes which have been shown to be suitable for biomedical application. Much of this work has involved the synthesis of poly(organophosphazenes) that may be useful as (a) biologically inert materials for biomedical reconstruction or artificial organ usage; (b) polymers that will degrade slowly in the body to harmless, readily excretable products; and (c) water-soluble high polymers that can function as carriers for drug molecules.
