New and Traditional Polymers from Biotechnology

  • Charles G. Gebelein

Abstract

Biotechnology can be defined as the use, modification or mimicing of naturally-occurring materials. In this context, several types of biotechnology-derived polymers exist, although they’re not always in mass production. This paper will summarize some pertinent information for certain biotechnology derived polymers, such as wool, cotton, silk, rubber casein and the cellulosics. In addition, some potential new polymers, and polymer applications, from biotechnology are briefly discussed.

Keywords
