CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Polymers is the only book available for introducing polymers to graduate or post-graduate students who use them in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields.

Polymers are becoming increasingly present in the domain of health yet introduction to polymers is not frequently taught. This much needed and timely book will provide students with an introduction to general concepts of polymer science and some insights into speciality polymers.

In four sections the book covers:
  • why study polymers for the health sciences?
  • general characteristics of polymers
  • main methods and processes to synthesize polymers
  • special properties of polymers

The final section of the book also contains case studies and detailed examples of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.

Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Polymers is a user-friendly textbook which will be an essential reference for postgraduate pharmaceutical science students, pharmaceutical scientists worldwide and pharmacy undergraduate students with an interest in polymers.
