There has been an unprecedented progress in the design of versatile biopolymer based nanoplatforms for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications over the past decade. This is due to their attractive traits, including excellent biocompatibility, outstanding biodegradability, low immunogenicity and facile chemical modifiability. Recently, many pioneering research laboratories have made great headway to appropriately tailor the structures of food-grade biopolymers (viz., polysaccharides and proteins) to develop nanostructures with tuned physicochemical characteristics. Such systems are widely being used as functional materials for drug delivery and other therapeutic applications. The proposed book covers the recently reported nanomaterials consisting of biopolymers such as polysaccharides (i.e., plant, animal, bacteria, algae and fungi-derived) and proteins in terms of their structures, synthetic protocols and characterizations. In addition, their applications as therapeutic drug and gene delivery carriers and in other biomedical fields are reviewed. This book compiles the chapters contributed by internationally renowned scholars working in arena of biopolymer-based nanomaterials offering a wide vision on the new and ongoing potential of different biopolymeric nanomaterials in the delivery and targeting of active molecules of pharmaceutical interest. The information related to concepts, design protocols and applications of biopolymer-based nanoplatforms is presented here, with detailed chapters on Pectin based nanomaterials, Konjac glucomannan based nanomaterials, Guar gum-based nanomaterials, tailor-made gum Arabic based nanomaterials, among others. The state-of-the-art information presented in Biopolymer Based Nanomaterials in Drug Delivery and Biomedical Applications will encourage young investigators to further bring cutting-edge developments in the field of nanomaterials and is also helpful for researchers new to the field"--PPN: PPN: 1795281545Package identifier: Produktsigel: BSZ-4-NLEBK-KAUB | ZDB-4-NLEBK
