Conducting polymers are versatile materials that possess both the unique properties of polymeric materials (elastic behavior, reversible deformation, flexibility, etc.) and the ability to conduct electricity with bulk conductivities comparable to those of metals and semiconductors. Conducting Polymers: Chemistries, Properties and Biomedical Applications provides current, state-of-the-art knowledge of conducting polymers and their composites for biomedical applications.

This book covers the fundamentals of conducting polymers, strategies to modify the structure of conducting polymers to make them biocompatible, and their applications in various biomedical areas such as drug/gene delivery, tissue engineering, antimicrobial activities, biosensors, etc.


Covers the state-of-the-art progress on biodegradable conducting polymers for biomedical applications

Presents synthesis, characterization, and applications of conducting polymers for various biomedical research

Provides the fundamentals of biodegradation mechanisms and the role of conduction in biomedical devices

Offers details of novel methods and advanced technologies used in biomedical applications using conducting polymers

Highlights new directions for scientists, researchers, and students to better understand the chemistry, technologies, and applications of conducting polymers

This book is essential reading for all academic and industrial researchers working in the fields of materials science, polymers, nanotechnology, and biomedical technology.
