Description

After giving an overview of cellulose and other natural polymers, the book comprehensively reviews the synthesis and characterization of superabsorbent hydrogels based on cellulose as well as on other natural biocompatible and biodegradable materials. The last part summarizes the existing and emerging applications of hydrogels in fields such as biomedicine, tissue engineering, drug delivery, agriculture and food packaging.
