Deals with the synthesis and characterization of hydrogels specifically used as drug delivery systems. Each chapter includes the most recent updates about the different starting materials employed--whether natural and synthetic--and the improvement, such as modifications of synthetic approach and polymerization technique, of their physicochemical and biological properties to synthetize high performing carriers for specific uses, i.e. stimuli-responsive materials, molecularly imprinted polymers, mucoadhesive materials, carrier for the delivery of high molecular weight drugs, and gene-delivery.
