Cryogels and related research : A glance over the past few decades

Raina, Deepak Bushan LU and Kumar, Ashok LU (2016) p.3-34
Abstract

This chapter describes how cryogels have evolved as promising matrices in various biotechnological and biomedical application areas. Cryogels date back nearly 40 years and here we describe the origin of these materials followed by characterization and their applications and also emphasize the differences in cryogelation and other related techniques. The main aim is to familiarize readers with the principles underlying the mechanism of cryogelation, how these matrices are characterized, provide historical and statistical data on their evolution over the past few decades and finally provide a brief idea of their applications in the areas of separation sciences, tissue engineering, environmental sciences, and so on.
