Soares, P. I. P., C. Echeverria, AC Baptista, C. F. C. João, S. N. Fernandes, A. P. C. Almeida, JC Silva, M. H. Godinho, and J. P. Borges Hybrid polysaccharide-based systems for biomedical applications. Hybrid Polymer Composite Materials: Applications., 2017. AbstractWebsite

Hybrid materials have been widely studied for structural applications. Polysaccharide-based fibers, especially cellulosic fibers, have been explored in the last two decades as substitutes of the traditional reinforcements made of glass or carbon fibers due to their mechanical properties. However, their biocompatibility, biodegradability, and chemistry have attracted the researchers and new developments in the field of smart and functional materials arise in diverse applications. This chapter will focus on the biomedical applications of polysaccharide-based smart and functional materials, namely those concerning biosensors and actuators, theranostic systems, and tissue-engineering applications. Special attention will be given to cellulose- and chitin/chitosan-based hybrid materials because these are the two most abundant polysaccharides and probably the most promising for the development of hybrid materials for biomedical applications. Biomimetic strategies for the development of smart and functional hybrid materials will also be highlighted. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.
