    The planned book summarizes the present state of knowledge on a large group of inorganic polymers that had hitherto been mainly considered with regard to their chemistry but not comprehensively reviewed with respect to their potential biomedical applications. This new book presents the most up-to-date developments in the use of synthetic polymers as biomaterials. Frontiers in Biomedical Polymer Applications is a compilation of the papers presented at the first International Meeting on the Frontiers of Medical Applications of Polymers.

      While natural polymers like collagen have been used biomedically for thousands of years, research into biomedical applications of synthetic degradable polymers is relatively new, starting in the s. 3,4 In the fifty years since, successes have been numerous, but grand challenges still exist in both the basic and translational elements of Cited by: Photocrosslinked polymers may be very useful for biomedical applications. The use of photopolymerization is advantageous in comparison with other conventional crosslinking methods, since we can obtain biomaterials in situ and in a minimally invasive by:
