Antioxidant Polymers is an exhaustive overview of the recent developments in the field of polymeric materials showing antioxidant properties. This research area has grown rapidly in the last decade because antioxidant polymers have wide industry applications ranging from materials science to biomedical, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. After an introductory overview of the antioxidant compounds, the book goes in detail with the description of the natural and synthetic polymeric antioxidants, with particular attention to both their chemical and biological properties. The extraction and modification of natural occurring polymers, as well as the fabrication of totally synthetic compounds, is treated in-depth.
