Polyamides and their functionalization: recent concepts for their applications as biomaterials

Author affiliations

Abstract

Synthetic polyamides (nylons) are very important polymers with applications in many fields, and recently their use in biology and medicine has become more and more important. Different recent concepts and strategies for the functionalization and applications of nylons as biomaterials are summarized in this article, with a focus on their utilization as scaffolds for tissue engineering, membranes and bioactive surfaces.
