Biopolymers Towards Green and Sustainable Development

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

Recently natural biodegradable excipients gained significant attention due to their sustainability and engineered applications. Innovative technologies to transform these materials into value-added chemicals via novel graft-polymerization or co-processing techniques for the production of high-performance multifunctional and low-cost polymers with tunable structures are key parts of its sustainable development.

                In the book “Biopolymers Towards Green and Sustainable Development“ we have elaborated various important issues that relates with topic such as overview of bio-based polymers, impact of non-biodegradable polymers on the environment and health, emerging new sources of biodegradable polymers, structural and morphological characterization techniques, thermomechanical properties, biodegradable plastics from biopolymers, pharmaceutical, biomedical, and textile applications, and pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics with a brief on bibliometric meta-analysis on bio-based pharmaceutical excipients. The chapters are beneficial for the graduate and researcher who are working in the similar field. Moreover, the bibliometric analysis provides an update to researcher about potential scientist involve in the exploitation of polymeric research. In addition, meta-analysis provides details on active country, organization, and funding agencies embroil in research based on development and assessment of multifarious biodegradable polymers.

                The key features of books “Biopolymers Towards Green and Sustainable Development” are as up-dated summary on recently discovered natural polymeric materials, a thorough breakdown of the vast range of application areas including fabrication of conventional and novel drug delivery, polymeric scaffolds, composites, microneedles, and green synthesis of metallic nanoparticles, summary of pharmacology and pharmacokinetics on the inactive pharmaceutical ingredient, and bibliometric meta-analysis indicating potential collaboration between country, organization, institution, and authors with a view on recent ongoing trends with biopolymers.

Dr. Warangkana Chunglok presently working as Associate Professor at the School of Allied Health Sciences, Walailak University, Thailand. She received Royal Golden Jubilee Scholarship from Thailand Research Fund, Thailand, and Deutscher Academischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD), Germany for perusing her Ph.D. Furthermore, she has received several awards from Walailak University, Thailand. She has sixteen years of teaching and research experience. She is one of the expert scientists in molecular biology of cancer, natural product-based drug discovery for cancers and inflammatory-related diseases, and therapeutic agents from medicinal plants for muscle wasting following stroke. Her research works are conducted both in national collaboration with other universities in Thailand and international collaboration with European Union research institutes. Her background experience includes experiments in molecular biology, in vitro and in vivo study, natural products drug discovery, evaluation of natural compounds and their synthetic analogues from medicinal plants as potential drug leads for the treatment of various types of cancers, inflammatory diseases, and stroke.
