Green polymer chemistry benefits biomedical field.

A green process for producing polymers developed by University of Akron ( researchers will provide a recyclable and cost-effective method of creating novel polymers for biomedical applications and other uses, including drug delivery. The results of the green polymer chemistry study, titled, "Green polymer chemistry using nature's catalysts, enzymes," are featured as a research highlight in the Journal of Polymer Science: Part A: Polymer Chemistry. The use of enzymes as catalysts is becoming an increasingly attractive alternative to conventional chemical catalysis, according to Judit Puskas, a UA polymer science professor and lead researcher in the study.
