dc.description.abstractOver the past few decades, there has been a growing awareness of the potential uses of biodegradable polymers in biotechnology and medicine. In particular, micro‐ and nano‐sized particles which are made from natural resources, exhibiting biodegradability, biocompatibility, and low toxicity have been the subject of intense research and development in many areas. Apart from their beneficial material properties, these particles allow variations in structure and composition to be designed, thereby tailoring them for specific applications. This review presents a broad overview of the main categories of biopolyester particles described in the literature, and putting emphasis on the composition and preparation of each group, followed by the wide variety of applications and potential uses described to date.
