Cellulose Ether Omega-Carboxyalkanoates for Drug Delivery and Coatings Applications

Novel polymers based on abundant, renewable cellulose, that are prepared by a highy practical process and that have outstanding organic solubility, compatibility with other polymers and with active small molecule species, and can be readily dispersed in water. They have outstanding promise in drug delivery (enhancing solubility of poorly soluble drugs), controlled release, and waterborne coatings applications.
