Notes

“Biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms. Since they are polymers, biopolymers contain monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger structures. There are three main classes of biopolymers based on the differing monomeric units used and the structure of the biopolymer formed: polynucleotides, which are long polymers composed of 13 or more nucleotide monomers; polypeptides, which are short polymers of amino acids; and polysaccharides, which are often linear bonded polymeric carbohydrate structures.

Cellulose is the most common organic compound and biopolymer on Earth. About 33 percent of all plant matter is cellulose. The cellulose content of cotton is 90 percent and that of wood is 50 percent.”

(Wikipedia, Biopolymers, 4/30/2012)

In this day of overworked technical people, keeping up is nearly impossible.  Maro's mission is to help keep up in as little time as possible.  Bookmark this page and check it often.  You will be surprised what can be picked up in just a few moments spent each day.

These pages list the links as they are found.  Some will abstracted and added to Maro Topics. (RDC 2/7/2012)
