Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material Development

Polysaccharide-based Biodegradable Material Development

Polysaccharides are long-chain biopolymeric carbohydrate molecules consisting mainly of monosaccharide units and are promising biobased materials due to their natural abundance, biodegradability, cytocompatibility, and high bioavailability. Many polysaccharides are present in the extracellular matrix (ECM) and are involved in several biological processes in cells and tissues. Many polysaccharides also exhibit antimicrobial, anti-adhesive, anti-coagulant, procoagulant, and wound-healing properties. These advantages allow polysaccharide-based biomaterials to show great potential in a variety of fields such as drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, and wound dressings.

Polysaccharides have become excellent materials for use in biological systems due to their excellent chemical and biochemical functionality, gelling properties, and structural similarity to ECM components. However, at the same time, some disadvantages of polysaccharide-based natural polymers such as the difficult solubility of cellulose and the poor mechanical properties of chitosan have limited their practical application. Therefore, researchers at CD BioGlyco have developed various methods to help clients modify polysaccharides to produce a variety of polysaccharide-based biodegradable materials to expand their applications in the biomedical field.
