Cyclic polymers: Advances in their synthesis, properties, and biomedical applications.

Romain Liénard, Julien De Winter, Olivier Coulembier

Abstract :  This review aims to give an overview on the recent progresses in the field of ring polymers to this day. The current state of the art of the preparation of cyclic polymers, the challenges related to it such as the purification of the samples and the scalability of the synthetic processes, the properties arising from the cyclic topology and the potential use of cyclobased polymers for biomedical applications are as many topics covered in this review.
