Polymerized Castor Oil
A biomaterial is any matter, surface, or construct that interacts with biological systems.
Medical applications of polyurethanes have contributed significantly to the quality of the care system. Different applications such as drug delivery systems, wound dressing, nasogastric catheters, electronic pacemakers are widely being used.
Castor Oil has been known for its medicinal value since ancient times. It contains ∼90% ricinoleic acid, which enables direct chemical transformation into polyesters without the interference of other fatty acids. The unique properties make it a natural polyol, Castor Oil is essential to the manufacture of polyurethane plastics. Several studies are being carried on polymerized Castor Oil is being investigated due to its environment-friendly nature.
Castor Oil-based polyurethanes have a promising future in the biomaterials fields. In the age of bioactive biomaterials, Castor Oil polyurethanes can add additional properties like antibacterial activity which can enhance and upscale the value of the biomaterials.
