Biopolymers are naturally occurring macromolecules produced by the cells of living organisms. Biopolymers are composed of monomeric units that are covalently linked to form larger molecules. Biopolymers can be proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, carbohydrates, or polysaccharides developed from living organisms. DNA biopolymers play important roles in the human body and ecosystems. There are three main classes of biopolymers classified according to the monomers used and the structure of the biopolymers formed. They are polynucleotides, polypeptides and polysaccharides. Polynucleotides such as RNA and DNA are the long polymers composed of 13 or more nucleotide monomers. Polypeptides and proteins are polymers of amino acids which include collagen, actin, and fibrin. Polysaccharides are linear or branched macromolecular carbohydrates such as starch, cellulose and alginates.

Polymer science is a research area of materials science that mainly deals with synthetic polymers such as plastics and elastomers. Polymer science also includes researchers from multiple fields such as chemistry, physics, and engineering. Polymers are made from biological material and are the basis of many mineral and man-made materials. Due to their diverse properties, man-made and natural polymers play an essential and ubiquitous role in everyday life. Biomedical applications of polymers include the development of prosthetic materials, bandages, dental materials, and other disposable items. Polymers are also used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, contact lenses and intraocular lenses, among others. Industrial market applications for polymers include automotive parts, fighter jet windshields, pipes, tanks, packaging materials, insulation, wood substitutes, adhesives, composite matrices, and elastomers.

Bioplastics are made from renewable sources such as corn oil, sugar beets, sugar cane, grass, recycled food waste and plants. Extensive research has been done and published on the damage traditional plastics are doing help to the environment. The fact that bioplastics are made from renewable resources and degradable materials means that pollution can be reduced in a very real way. Many everyday items will soon be made from bioplastics, including packaging and catering products, consumer electronics, and automotive parts.

Natural polymers are polymers that occur naturally in our environment. Natural polymers come from a variety of sources, including plants, animals, and microorganisms. Natural polymers are widely used in various biomedical applications such as pharmaceuticals, tissue regeneration scaffolds, drug delivery devices, and imaging devices. In wound care, it is used as a wound dressing for acute or chronic wounds. Natural polymers include DNA, cellulose, protein, pectin, silk, wool.
Synthetic polymers are made by a chemical reaction called "polymerization". There are various forms of polymerization. The importance of synthetic polymers lies in their use in society as they possess many desirable properties such as strength, flexibility, toughness and chemical inertness.

Linear polymers are macromolecules composed of many monomer units arranged in a straight line. For linear polymers, the monomers are linearly attached to each other. Linear polymers are often semi crystalline or crystalline. Linear polymers include polyethylene, PVC, polystyrene, and polyamides.
Crosslinked polymers are macromolecules with covalent bonds between polymer molecules. Crosslinked polymers are insoluble in all solvents because the polymer chains are held together by strong covalent bonds. In crosslinked polymers, the monomers are linked together in a crosslinked manner. Crosslinked polymers include polyester fiberglass, polyurethanes used as coatings, adhesives, vulcanizates and epoxies.
Polymer Nanocomposites consist of polymers or copolymers with nanoparticles dispersed in a polymer matrix. The Polymer Nanotechnology Group can develop fundamental techniques for patterning practical surfaces. Polymer Nanoscience is the study of Nanoscience and its application to polymer-nanoparticle matrices, where nanoparticles have at least one dimension less than 100 nm. The most commonly used filler particle type in the tire industry has traditionally been carbon black, produced from the incomplete combustion of coal tar and ethylene.

Biopolymers have been extensively studied and optimized for biomedical applications. Over the past two decades, research has focused on translational clinical applications, particularly Tissue engineering and Regenerative medicine. Tribune is used for tissue repair of bones, tendons, cartilage, skeletal muscle, skin, ligaments, vascular tissue and nerve tissue. Most polymers, polymer derivatives, blends, or copolymers have been reported to possess beneficial properties suitable for tissue and regenerative engineering. Examples of applications involving repair of damaged tissue include repair of cartilage, skin, bladder, muscle, neuritis, bone, and blood vessels
Biodegradable biopolymer waste can be treated by aerobic degradation, anaerobic digestion or composting. When biopolymers are composted or digested, their individual components are naturally recycled, especially their carbon and hydrogen content. The main recycling technologies being investigated are mechanical recycling, chemical recycling (hydrolysis, alcoholysis, catalytic thermal depolymerization), and the relatively new enzymatic depolymerization of biopolymers. Mechanical treatment of industrial waste currently appears to be the only viable option for recycling biodegradable polymers.

Polymers play an important role in medical applications and biomaterials are already widely used in clinical applications. However, some medically approved polymers have not yet been optimized for their intended use. Properties such as mechanical properties, plasticity and degradation behaviour must be adapted to the selected application. Surface properties are also very important for medical applications. Now Polymers are also repeatedly attracting attention in trendy biomaterials analysis wherever polymeric materials are intended to serve as mechanically stable, degradable customized scaffolds, drug carriers. In the space major progresses can be achieved through 3D printing hierarchical materials with tissue-like structures.

A biodegradable polymer is a polymer that is degraded by microorganisms within a reasonable period of time so that the biodegradable polymer and its degradation products do not seriously affect the environment. Degradation reactions involve hydrolysis into non-toxic small molecules that are metabolized or excreted in the body. Bio-Chemical polymers are large molecules composed of many similar smaller molecules linked together in a highly chained fashion. Small organic molecules can combine to form larger molecules or polymers. When small organic molecules are joined together, they can form giant molecules or Natural polymers which are used to build tissues and other elements of living organisms.

Bio-based biodegradable materials not only offer advantages in terms of raw materials, but also in terms of disposal through certain promising end-of-life (EOL) options. In particular, waste discharge with energy recovery has additional advantages. This lies in the fact that it produces climate-neutral energy while at the same time allowing for multiple uses after possible recycling. Bio-based packaging materials have been featured at recent gatherings as an environmentally friendly alternative. Among them, delicious films are gaining attention due to their eco-friendly properties which are wide variety and availability, non-toxicity and low cost.
