Abstract

The development of an eco-friendly item implies the design of a sustainable material. Such a liaison is crucial in the biomedical field, where disposable devices are used in a broad range of applications, i.e. blisters, sutures, implants, scaffolds for tissue engineering and controlled drug delivery systems. As a consequence, the choice of biodegradable and healthy solutions, given their contact with human body, is a fundamental pre-requisite. In this view, this paper compares a set of noteworthy existing PBS-based biodegradable polyesters in order to summarize their main properties and support designers during the material selection step, by following a life cycle thinking perspective.
