Potential Applications of Biocompatible and Biodegradable Nature of Biopolymer

V Deshraj


Biopolymer is a polymer that is obtained from living organisms. It is an eco-friendly chemical compound that is considered as the most organic compound in the ecosphere. The name “Biopolymer” specifies that it is a bio-degradable polymer. Biopolymers are one of the alternatives of fossil fuels. This short communication represented the several types of applications of Biopolymer in our daily life.
