  • Biodegradable Oxidized Cellulose Esters

    Type: 
    Product

    Background: Cellulose is a common material used in numerous medical veterinary and agricultural products. Oxidized cellulose is a biodegradable form of this product that suffers from a poor solubility in water and common organic solvents. Cellulose esters are more soluble in water and thus more commonly used as pharmaceutical excipients but lack some of the useful drug delivery characteristics of oxidized cellulose. Combining the properties of both of these reactive groups produces a superior drug delivery mechanism.
