By Renard, E Langlois, V; Guerin, P Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) form an enlarged family of biopolyesters, which are biocompatible, biodegradable and non- toxic. Polyhydroxyalkanoates biodegradation corresponds to a hydrolysis involving endo- or exo-enzymatic systems in the breaking cleavage of esters bonds. This type of degradation is needed for environmental applications. In the case of therapeutic and biomedical uses, a simple hydrolysis is required. Hydrolytic degradation of PHAs is not...
