Book excerpt: Biopolymer-Based Nanomaterials in Drug Delivery and Biomedical Applications presents a clear and detailed body of information on biopolymer chemistry and polymer sciences in drug delivery. The 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 chapters contributed by internationally renowned scholars working in biopolymer-based nanomaterials, offering a wide vision on the new and ongoing potential of different biopolymeric nanomaterials. 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. Such systems are widely being used as functional materials for drug delivery and other therapeutic applications. Provides a critical and detailed examination in the recent development of biopolymer-based nanomaterials Focuses on modified biopolymer-based, diverse cutting-edge techniques in drug delivery and biomedical applications Assesses the opportunities and challenges of biopolymer-based nano-carriers in pharmaceutical and biomedical fields
