Polymer basics: Structure and properties
Polymers are the most widely used materials in the pharmaceutical and medical devices industry. However, there have been instances of unexpected product failure and yield deterioration driven by changes in the physical and chemical structure of polymer materials that may occur during production, post treatment, transportation, in storage or in use. This paper introduces the basic concepts related to polymeric materials' structure and properties.
