Polymers in Biotechnology, Medicine and Health

Polymers used in biotechnology and medicine as macromolecules that undergo fast and reversible changes from hydrophilic to hydrophobic microstructure triggered by small changes in their environments. These microscopic changes are apparent at the macroscopic level as precipitate formation in solutions of smart polymers or changes in the wettability of a surface to which a smart polymer is grafted. The changes are reversible, and the system returns to its initial state when the trigger is removed.

Polymers  application  is  represented  in  all areas  of  human  activity  and  everyday  life.  Therefore  it is  important  to  know  their  impact  on  human  health. Polymers  are  mostly  used  as  wrapping materials  in construction    industry. The   main   disadvantage   of   plasticmaterials  is  their  variable  transmission  for light, gases and steam, as well as softening in  high  temperatures.  Knowledge  of  kinds and   possible   harmful   effects   on   human health  is  imperative  in  the  choice  and  use of   certain   types   of   polymers.   Special attention must be taken in food industry.
