Versatile Biodegradable, Bioactive-Based Polymers for Topical, Cosmetic and Personal Care Applications
A. Structure of salicylic acid-based polymer and its degradation products.
B. Polymer degradation rates with different linker molecules.
C. Free ferulic acid in aqueous solution is unstable and turns brown after 10 days (left). Ferulic acid-based polymers are stable and aesthetically more pleasing in solution under the same condition (right).
