Biopolymers and their applications in chemistry


Doaa Alasady, Huda Sabah Hassen, Anaam Jawad Alabbasy

Biopolymers have wide applications in all areas of chemistry such as nano-polymers, biopolymers, and polymers as drug carriers. When individual organic molecules are linked together in long chains, polymers that have completely different properties compared to smaller starting materials are formed. The most important biopolymers are DNA, RNA, proteins and sugars. The basic building blocks of these molecules are respectively nucleotides, amino acids and carbohydrates (sugars). These compounds have many well-established industrial applications, but new areas of application such as pharmaceuticals and pharmaceuticals are receiving increasing interest and importance. Understanding the chemical and physical properties of polymers allows us to produce a variety of materials precisely tailored to personal and industrial needs. If we look around we will notice a large number of plastic, rubber and nylon items, made of different types of polymers. Polymers are everywhere.
