Abstract

Synthetic polymers play an essential role in the development of conventional pharmaceutical formulations as well as devices for controlled drug delivery and represent the most commonly used “building blocks” for engineering of various nanomedicines. In this chapter we review several classes of synthetic polymers that are widely used for the design of drug delivery systems, synthetic methodologies to tailor their physicochemical properties, and therapeutic applications and developments.
