Oxidized Polysaccharides: A Green and Sustainable Biomaterial

Author(s): Allen Dreck

Polysaccharide-based materials, particularly in the field of biomaterials, have been widely adopted as first-choice choices for a variety of applications. The key reasons for this are the materials' long-term viability and high bioavailability. Their capacity to be chemically modified readily allows them to be used in a variety of ways, with oxidation of the backbone being one of the most prevalent. Furthermore, these materials degrade in a variety of ways (enzymatically and chemically), making them appropriate for biomedical applications. The creation of a novel degradable in vitro model that may be used in the preclinical phase of drug development has been the most coveted goal of materials science experts. Polysaccharides are promising materials with benefits such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, and abundance. They are formed of monosaccharide units connected together by glycosidic linkages and are one of the most common and commonly utilised polymers. Polysaccharides are considered green materials since they are naturally derived and biodegradable, and they are used in a variety of applications. Because of their safety, non-toxicity, and bioavailability, they are widely used in biological applications.
