Editorial Note on Functional PolymersAuthor(s): Stephen Miller
Researchers may now easily create polymers with customized composition, architecture, and functionality because to advances in synthetic polymer chemistry. This has substantially increased the use of polymers in a variety of fields. Functional polymers, in particular, have been increasingly involved in many biomedical applications as soft and biocompatible materials. Significant progress in the biomedical sector has been made thanks to beautifully engineered functional polymers, including the creation of stimuli-responsive polymer materials, novel drug delivery methods, and improved theranostics.
