Paper Title
Polymer Biodegradation Basics and Approaches to Improve Biodegradability of Polymer: A Review
  Pradeep. J. Patil,  Jemmy I. Disouza,  Umesh B. Deshannavar

Biodegradable polymers have opened an emerging area of great interest because of their wide applications in the environment and biomedical field. The biodegradable polymers are extensively employed for biomedical applications due to their bio-compatibility, biodegradability, flexibility, and minimal side effects. The industrial applications of various polymers are limited to their non-biodegradability. The kinds of parameters that impact the biodegradability of polymers include hydrophobicity, high molecular weight, chemical and structural compositions of polymers that hinder their biodegradation. The different approaches can be useful to improve the biodegradability of existing polymers and to make them eco-friendly. In the present review, the author has discussed biodegradable and non-biodegradable polymers, factors influencing polymer biodegradability, biodegradation pathways, and approaches to improve the biodegradability of polymers.

Keywords- Polymers, biodegradable, non-biodegradable, eco-friendly polymers
